Brick Drop Challenge
In this design challenge, leaners attempt to build a strong structure out of LEGO® bricks that can withstand a 4-foot drop.
You Can't Take It With YouAdd to list Details
This activity models the necessary balance of creating power and cleaning up its associated waste. Learners participate in a game where they attempt to move forward toward a goal.
In this activity (on pages 12-15), learners make a crater model and test the effects of weather (rain) on its surface.
Paper MakerAdd to list Details
Learners make their own paper. They start by shredding old newspaper, clean toilet paper, and clean paper towels.
Power Up!Add to list Details
In this online game, learners must purchase power plants for their city.
Mass, Area, VolumeAdd to list Details
In this activity (page 18 of PDF), learners will measure the volume of impact craters created by projectiles of different masses.
Shapes and AnglesAdd to list Details
In this activity (page 7 of PDF), learners will identify the general two-dimensional geometric shape of the uppermost cross section of an impact crater.
Make impact craters with marbles (or rocks or washers) in a container of flour. Find out what you can learn about your "comets" by the craters they make.
Exploring the Solar System: Craters
"Exploring the Solar System: Craters" is an active, hands-on activity that demonstrates how craters form, and what they can teach us about the history and composition of planets and moons.
In this outdoor, mystery-solving activity, learners work like detectives, gathering evidence to identify the culprits that are attacking plants.
Angles and AreaAdd to list Details
In this activity (page 10 of PDF), learners approximate the area of the uppermost cross section of an impact crater using a variety of square grids.
