This is an activity during Solar Week, a twice-yearly event in March and October during which classrooms are able to interact with scientists studying the Sun. Outside of Solar Week, information, activities, and resources are archived and available... (View More)

This is an activity about electromagnetism and the Sun. First, learners will do a KWL activity using six vocabulary words. Next, they will build an electromagnet and investigate how it works. Finally, learners will relate the workings of their... (View More)

This is an activity about the Doppler effect. Learners begin by simulating the noise made by a passing siren. After learning that the change in pitch results from movement, they investigate the definition of frequency, calculate change in frequency,... (View More)

In this lesson, students explore the visible light spectrum using a flashlight and red, blue and green theatrical gels or cellophane. They also record data on a worksheet, and learn about mixing wavelengths of light. A student worksheet, data sheet,... (View More)

This is an activity about magnetism. Using bar magnets, classroom materials, and a compass, learners will explore how bar magnets interact with one another and with other materials, use a compass to find the direction north, and use various... (View More)

A simple experimental apparatus made of rubber band and books is used by student teams challenged with demonstrating the concepts of friction, force, and inertia. This resource is from PUMAS - Practical Uses of Math and Science - a collection of... (View More)

Using three flashlights and sheets of red, blue and green cellophane, students demonstrate that white light is composed of colored light of different wavelengths. The resource is part of the teacher's guide accompanying the video, NASA Why Files:... (View More)

In this activity, teachers set up five stations to provide students an understanding of light refraction, using water, microscope slides, beakers, a coin, and eyedroppers. Students rotate through the stations and record their observations on a data... (View More)

In this kinesthetic activity, students observe the relationship between energy and the frequency of waves transmitted through a rope. A rope and a slinky are used in this activity. The resource is part of the teacher's guide accompanying the video,... (View More)

This resource consists of a template that can be used by students to cut out a book in a rainbow shape. It is suggested that students write a book documenting what they know about the visible spectrum. The resource is part of the teacher's guide... (View More)
