In this activity (on page 2 of PDF under GPS: Roller Coaster Design Activity), learners will use food cans of many different properties (sizes, shapes, and weights) and set two cans on their sides at
In this activity, learners examine baking powder, a combination of three powders: baking soda, cream of tartar, and cornstarch.
In this activity, learners work in teams to study the observation skills essential to scientific research.
Learners manipulate opaque, sealed boxes and attempt to determine their interior structures. Each box contains a moving ball and one or more fixed barriers.
In this chemistry activity, learners are asked to form a hypothesis about the behavior of milk as household detergents act upon it.
Learners conduct an experiment to determine the rate at which two materials, sand and water, heat up and cool down.
In this lab activity, learners act as fellow scientists and colleagues of Isaac Newton. He has asked them to independently test his ideas on the nature of motion, in particular his 2nd Law.
Using indirect methods, learners determine the shape and size of a piece of carpet hidden under a piece of plywood.
In this activity about water's cohesive and adhesive properties and why water molecules are attracted to each other, learners test if objects repel or absorb water.
Learners turn over a random selection of cards from a larger set. From the words revealed, they try to determine the sentence represented on the larger set of cards.
Learners investigate a pre-constructed mystery tube to determine its interior mechanism.
In this activity about magnetism (page 15 of the PDF), learners will explore how opposite and similar magnetic poles affect a swinging (pendulum) magnet.
Learners observe the outside and inside of raw chicken eggs, record descriptions, and hypothesize what will happen when a facilitator drops an egg on the floor.
Learners work in teams to investigate how scientists use physical characteristics to classify living things.
Learners use scientific processes to solve a crime. As they get clues, learners must create a hypothesis then adjust that hypothesis as more information is revealed.
In this lesson, learners are challenged to discover the relationship among six numbers.
Learners design their own experiment to determine which M&M color dissolves the fastest in water.
In this activity about water solubility and density, learners use critical thinking skills to determine why water can dissolve some things and not others.
A group of learners has an envelope containing a series of bank checks. A few checks are removed at a time, and the team attempts to construct a plausible scenario which involves those checks.
