Make a Dinosaur Model
In this activity, learners explore dinosaur skeletons, anatomy, and locomotion. Learners compare and contrast dinosaur skeletons and drawings.
In this activity, learners build a figure that moves and "comes to life" when they pull its string.
Water StridersAdd to list Details
In this outdoor activity/field trip, learners catch and observe water striders to explore their movement and feeding behaviors.
Relative Speed of DinosaursAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners interpret three trackways and use measurements and a formula to infer the relative speed of dinosaurs.
Observing Earthworm Locomotion
In this activity, learners collect worms and then observe how they move.
Hopper CircusAdd to list Details
In this outdoor activity and/or field trip, learners investigate the behavior of hopping animals.
The Bug Walk
In this fun group activity involving music and movement, learners are introduced to the idea that many insects walk by using their legs to create "alternating triangles." Learners sing the "Ants Go Ma
Supporting StructuresAdd to list Details
In this activity about living things and gravity (page 5 of PDF), learners design and build an exoskeleton or an endoskeleton for an animal of their own invention.
The Power of TogethernessAdd to list Details
In this activity about human anatomy (page 16 of PDF), learners construct a model arm and discover how muscles and bones work together to achieve efficient movement.
Horse Gaits FlipbooksAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore the gait of horses by constructing flipbooks with British photographer Eadweard Muybridge's famous photographs.
Mammal FlipbooksAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore mammal locomotion by constructing flipbooks.
By participating in a seed scavenger hunt, learners examine many adaptations of seeds, including how many seeds a plant makes, how those seeds travel to new locations, and what protects them from pred
In this activity (page 1 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Rabbits), learners will visit a zoo, aquarium, or pet store to view a variety of fish.
