This is a lesson about the nature of a scientific question. Learners will construct a valid scientific question that can be answered by data and/or modeling and choose an appropriate mission for their rover that will answer their scientific... (View More)

This lesson addresses the common student misconception that the Earth is closer to the Sun during the summer in the Northern Hemisphere. This lesson encourages students to voice this misconception at the beginning of the lesson and then attempts to... (View More)

In this activity, students create a reservoir model using hoses, a bucket, a flat pan, and water, to understand the inputs and outputs of a local watershed or reservoir. The resource is supported by teacher background information, assessment... (View More)

This demonstration is designed to show how the inputs and outputs of energy or mass in a system balance. Students create a reservoir model using a hose, a bucket, a tub with a drain and overflow triangle, a ruler, and water, to understand the inputs... (View More)

In this activity, students demonstrate the relationship between wave frequency and energy in the electromagnetic spectrum by shaking a rope to identify the relationships. This activity is part of Unit 2 in the Space Based Astronomy guide that... (View More)

This is an activity about wavelength and frequency. Using a 30 to 50 foot rope and two volunteers, learners will observe as one end of the rope is shaken and wavelength patterns are created. They will estimate the wavelength, the distance between... (View More)

This is an activity about size, distance, and perspective. Learners will observe two objects of the same size placed at different distances, and they will observe two objects of different size placed at varying distances. This concept is then... (View More)

Audience: Elementary school

This is an activity about light and its component colors. Learners will observe a photograph of a rainbow and make observations about what they see in the photo. Next, they will observe a rainbow spectrum and draw the rainbow using crayons. Finally,... (View More)

Audience: Elementary school

This is an activity about spectroscopy. Learners make their own spectroscope and measure the wavelengths of spectral lines. Then, they will record the colors, patterns, and wavelengths of the lines from various light sources. This activity requires... (View More)
