This activity is about the role of plants as carbon sinks. Using atom signs made of construction paper, a blanket and other materials, learners will visualize the role of plants in storing carbon and discuss what may lead to its release. This the... (View More)

This activity is about the carbon cycle. Using construction paper and signs, learners will simulate chemical bonds and the energy exchanges that take place during the carbon cycle. They will then respond to questions about the processes of... (View More)

This is an activity about the correlation between annual precipitation and plant productivity in different Earth biomes. Learners consider water evaporation, solubility and abundance relative to life on Earth and relative to finding evidence for... (View More)

This is a lesson where learners explore how the creation and destruction of ozone protects us from ultraviolet radiation (UV). Learners will kinesthetically model the depletion of ozone caused by chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) molecules; use ultraviolet... (View More)

In this inquiry investigation, students study the motion and positions of the Earth and how they affect the path of sunlight we get in different places. They discover that the Earth must be curved to account for the different lengths of shadows at... (View More)

In this activity, students become familiar with the orientation of shadows, their size in relation to the object casting them, and how the alignment of the Sun, the object, and the shadow tells us much about how shadows work. Supplies needed for... (View More)
