This lesson focuses on how materials behave differently as their surface area increases.
In this activity, learners complete a series of drawing activities to explore scale and powers of 10. Learners first trace each other on 1-meter-square pieces of paper.
In this activity, learners examine body parts (including skin, scales, and skulls) from fish, mammals and reptiles. Questions are provided to help encourage learner investigations.
In this activity, learners will rate the day, a book, or something else on a scale from -2 to 2. This activity works well for groups of all ages.
In this activity, learners get hands-on experience with ratios and scaling while making their own jewelry out of recycled plastic containers.
This investigation provides learners with a hands-on activity that simulates the changing relationship of surface areas-to-volume for a growing cell.
In this activity, learners confront their perceptions of gravity in the solar system.
In this activity, learners investigate Scanning Probe Microscopes (SPM) and then work in teams using a pencil to explore and identify the shape of objects they cannot see, just as SPMs do at the nano
In this activity, learners model the gravitational fields of planets on a flexible surface.
In this outdoor archaeology activity, learners use mathematical skills and scientific inquiry to generate and process information from their own excavation site.
In this demonstration, learners compare the relative sizes and masses of scale models of the planets as represented by fruits and other foods.
In this activity, learners make a scale model of the Solar System and learn the real definition of "space." Learners use the online calculator to create an appropriate scale to use as a basis for thei
In this three/four-day lesson, learners calculate perimeters and areas and draw the castle plan to scale.
In this activity on page 3 of the PDF, learners visualize the relative size and structural differences between microbes that have the potential to cause disease.
In this activity, learners build a 1:140 "scale model" of NASA's X-33 Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) Technology Demonstrator, and investigate how the model dimensions compare to the real vehicle.
In this four-day lesson, learners identify three-dimensional forms in castle design, research different parts of the castle with a focus on their uses, and design and enlarge a banner for the great ha
In this activity about scale, learners investigate the world of the very small by cutting a 28 centimeter strip of paper in half as many times as they can.
This activity (located on page 2 of PDF) introduces learners to the real size of animals using nonstandard measurement.
In this activity, learners use measurement concepts to make models of what their body parts might look like if they were a snake or a chameleon.
