With this lesson plan, students observe a demonstration of cloud formation that uses a 2L plastic beverage bottle and other simple ingredients to learn the three factors required for cloud formation. A test and a control experiment are conducted.... (View More)

In this demonstration, a plastic soft drink bottle is used to demonstrate properties of gases and liquids with respect to temperature and pressure. Calculations using the formula for the Ideal Gas Law are included. The resource is from PUMAS -... (View More)

This demonstration shows that similar-appearing lights can be distinctly different, suggesting that the light emitted is generated in different ways. It requires some advance preparation/setup by the teacher and three recommended sources of orange... (View More)

In this problem-based learning (PBL) scenario, students prepare a presentation for investors showing how their fishing company has a significant advantage because it locates upwelling zones and fishing areas using TRMM (Tropical Rainfall Measuring... (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 demonstration, sheet cakes are used to show how tectonic forces create convergent, divergent and transform plate boundaries. The resource is part of the teacher's guide accompanying the video, NASA SCI Files: The Case of the Shaky Quake.... (View More)

Wave movement is explored using a metal tray of prepared gelatin, dominoes, sugar cubes, plastic wrap and a rubber mallet, in a demonstration of physical principles supporting the study of earthquakes. The resource is part of the teacher's guide... (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)

Students experiment with a model system made from a wooden block, sandpaper, a thumbtack, and a rubber band to understand earthquakes. In this system, the rubber band stores energy until it accumulates enough energy to overcome friction and move the... (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)
