In this demonstration activity, students make structural models of gas molecules using pipe cleaners and polystyrene balls and test their molecules for their resonant frequency. Students shake the models, count vibrations, and compare the resonance... (View More)

In this introductory textbook chapter, energy is defined and its sources, forms, and flow are introduced. Students are introduced to the first law of thermodynamics, conservation of energy. The resource includes links to current news articles, and a... (View More)

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 how fossil fuels release carbon. Learners will use toys, sand and other materials to simulate a city, considering the formation of fossil fuels and how burning these releases carbon and produces warming. As part of 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 a hands-on lab activity about the composition of salt. Learners will explain the general relationship between an element's Periodic Table Group Number and its tendency to gain or lose electron(s), and explain the difference between molecular... (View More)

This worksheet, suitable for pre-readers, directs students to categorize pictures as sources of either natural or artificial light. The resource is part of the teacher's guide accompanying the video, NASA Why Files: The Case of the Mysterious Red... (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)

In this kinesthetic game, student learn about light reflection. Teams line up with a series of mirrors and race to as they transfer a beam of light from one mirror to another as quickly as they can. A flashlight and 4 or 5 handheld mirrors are... (View More)

In this activity, students build a model system using a rectangular pan, clay, craft sticks and water, and learn that energy is required to initiate waves and demonstrate that frequency is the number of waves that pass a given point in a certain... (View More)
