Dig a hole, line it, fill it with fresh water, and you have a water hole: a good place to study colonization.
In this activity, learners create a garden in a disposable glove. They learn about the conditions necessary to make the seeds sprout and actively participate in caring for their plants.
Learners design their own experiment to investigate whether the temperature of the surrounding water affects the rate at which the colored coating dissolves from an M&M.
In this activity, learners work in teams to study the observation skills essential to scientific research.
In this activity (on page 2), pairs of learners create an imaginary crime scene. One person leaves the room while the other person moves a few things around.
Learners observe and record what happens when they manipulate bottles containing a liquid (water or corn syrup) and one or more objects (screw, nail, paper clip).
Learners manipulate opaque, sealed boxes and attempt to determine their interior structures. Each box contains a moving ball and one or more fixed barriers.
Young learners investigate and observe the properties of three liquids -- water, vegetable oil, and corn syrup. They use their senses to collect data and ask and answer questions.
This three-part activity consists of an activity that groups of learners develop themselves, a given procedure, and an optional demonstration.
In this activity, learners work in small groups to match various marine animals with their different environments.
In this activity, learners observe live fish in tanks to consider how their body structures are related to their behaviors and habitats.
In this activity, young learners, (2 years and up) explore bird behavior and adaptations by providing a homemade bird feeder and observing birds.
Learners place an M&M candy in water and observe what happens. The sugar-and-color coating dissolves and spreads out in a circular pattern around the M&M.
In this outdoor activity/field trip, learners catch and observe water striders to explore their movement and feeding behaviors.
This activity (on page 3 of the PDF under GPS: Biodiversity Activity) is a full inquiry investigation into biodiversity.
In this activity, learners heat and cool carbonated water to find out whether temperature has an effect on how fast the dissolved gas leaves carbonated water.
This activity (page 2 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Horse Ears) is a full inquiry investigation into animal behavior and communication.
In this activity (on page 1 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Earthquakes), learners will use a magnifier to carefully examine samples of sand from different locations.
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.
