In this activity, students use mathematics to understand tides and gravitation and how gravity works across astronomical distances, using an apparatus made from a slinky, meter stick, and a hook. A description of the mathematical relationships seen... (View More)

This activity is about the processes that have shaped the eastern coastline of the United States, specifically considering the impact of pollution. Learners will use model habitats to simulate the runoff of pollutants and consider how they might... (View More)

This activity is about the impact of climate change in aquatic ecosystems. Learners will build two aquatic habitats using soda bottles and other materials and simulate climate change conditions in one of the habitats. After making daily qualitative... (View More)

This activity is about the process of pollination. Using chalk and Q-tips, learners will simulate the pollination process to understand the relationship between pollinator and flowering plant. They will also then simulate a scenario depicting 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 resource describes the physics behind the formation of clouds, and provides a demonstration of those principles using a beaker, ice, a match, hot water, and a laser pointer. This resource is from PUMAS - Practical Uses of Math and Science - a... (View More)

This activity is about underwater mapping and its importance in deep-water exploration. Working in groups, learners will use bathymetric survey data to create a two-dimensional topographic map. They will use that map to create a three-dimensional... (View More)

In this learning activity, student will identify clouds and describe related weather, then incorporate the observations into a poem. The resource includes a multiple choice assessment. The lesson is supported by S'COOL cloud tutorial, and several... (View More)

This activity is designed to introduce students to planetary geologic features and processes. First, students will use NASA satellite images to identify geologic surface features on the "Blue Marble" (Earth), and will explore the connection between... (View More)

In this experiment, students create a "lava lamp" - a beaker on a hotplate, and investigate buoyancy, convection and other fluid and thermodynamic properties using ink, water, vegetable oil and Alka-Seltzer tablets. The activity is from PUMAS -... (View More)
