Learners investigate how temperature affects the rate of chemical reactions by observing how steel wool reacts with various types of Kool-Aid solutions at different temperatures.
Rubber Blubber Gloves
In this experiment, learners work in pairs to create two gloves -- one that contains a layer of shortening (blubber) inside, and one that doesn't.
In this activity, learners explore how different deodorants work. Learners treat agar plates with different types of deodorants and compare the bacteria growth on the plates to the control sample.
The Water (Hydrologic) Cycle: Transpiration
In this lab, learners grow broad bean (also called fava bean) plants in three EarthBoxes for a few weeks before exposing one to wind (using a fan), another to heat (using a lamp), and the third to not
Acids & Bases
In this activity, learners test the pH of safe liquids available at home by creating a pH indicator from mashed blueberries.
Multitasking ManiaAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners conduct scientific research on multitasking. Learners determine if multitasking with media while doing homework affects their ability to successfully complete the homework.
Mini Glacier MeltdownAdd to list Details
This activity (located on page 3 of the PDF under GPS: Glaciers Activity) is a full inquiry investigation about the different causes of glacial melt.
In this activity, challenge learners to keep an ice cube from completely melting in 30 minutes. Learners engineer a box or wrap to prevent an ice cube from melting.
Sea Turtle First Aid InvestigationAdd to list Details
This activity (located on page 4 of the PDF under GPS: Sea Turtles Activity) is a full inquiry investigation into testing a repair material.
Introduction to the Scientific Method
In this activity (page 26 of the PDF), learners make observations, formulate hypotheses and design a controlled experiment, based on the reaction of carbon dioxide with calcium hydroxide.
What's Hiding in the Air?: Rubber Band Air Test
Learners build devices from rubber bands to test for invisible air pollutants.
