This activity (on page 3 of the PDF under GPS: Baseball Activity) is a full inquiry investigation into how "bounciness" relates to the distance a ball will fly when hit off a batting tee.
In this math activity (Page 12 of the Play Ball! PDF), learners play a game of "soccer" and analyze the results of the game.
In this activity, learners will conduct an open-ended survey, and then organize and analyze results. What languages does everyone speak? What’s the most common? the least common?
Learners construct and use a "real" 3D coordinate system out of balsa wood and foam core. They will then be able to locate coordinates in space.
In this activity, learners work in groups to determine the mass and volume of four samples: glass marbles, steel washers or nuts, pieces of pine wood, and pieces of PVC pipe.
In this math activity (Page 14 of the Play Ball! PDF), learners play a game of "basketball" and analyze the results of the game.
In this activity, learners will be working with predictions with a time frame of one week, or longer. Start by planting seedlings.
In this activity, learners "dance" (move back and forth at varying speeds) by reading a graph. This is a kinesthetic way to help learners interpret and understand how motion is graphed.
In this activity, learners explore how the area of Arctic sea ice has changed over recent years. First, learners graph the area of Arctic sea ice over time from 1979 to 2007.
In this math lesson, learners practice reading charts and graphs by creating and interpreting glyphs.
In this activity, learners use Starburst® candy to sort, classify, compare, and graph. Learners grab a handful of one-inch candy squares, sort them by color, graph the candy, and discuss the results.
This activity (located on page 3 of the PDF under GPS: Glaciers Activity) is a full inquiry investigation into the forces of gravity and air pressure.
In this activity, learners use a straight line to learn about circles. Learners measure and record the diameter and circumference of different sized cylindrical objects on a chart.
In this activity, learners explore a surprising method for calculating the mathematical constant pi, known as Buffon's Needle.
In this activity, learners help a poor cartographer color in the countries on a map, making sure each country is colored a different color than any of its neighbors.
In this multi-faceted game (on pages 25-35), learners recreate what happens to creatures in the Brazilian rain forest as they grow from egg to adult—especially those that use fallen, empty Brazil nut
In this space science activity, learners explore transits and the conditions when a transit may be seen.
In this math activity (Page 17 of the Play Ball! PDF), learners play a game of "baseball" and analyze the results of the game.
In this outdoor activity and fun race, learners first find the most common type of tree in a forest site.
Get a roll of pennies, throw them on the ground, then remove those that only show tails, and repeat with the ones left over.
