In this activity, learners discover how geologists use stratigraphy, the study of layered rock, to understand the sequence of geological events.
In this outdoor activity, learners investigate the relationship between the slope of a trail and soil erosion.
In this activity, learners work in groups to determine the mass and volume of four samples: glass marbles, steel washers or nuts, pieces of pine wood, and pieces of PVC pipe.
In this team design challenge (page 19-24 of PDF), learners "land" a model Lunar Rover in a model Landing Pod (both previously built in activities #3 and #4 in PDF).
In this math lesson, learners analyze the density of liquids in order to explore linear functions.
In this outdoor activity linking human health to the environment, learners use their pulse rates as a measure of the effort expended in walking on different slopes.
In this team design challenge (page 2-10 of PDF), learners design and build a model of a Lunar Transport Rover that will carry equipment and people on the surface of the Moon.
In this activity, learners use a straight line to learn about circles. Learners measure and record the diameter and circumference of different sized cylindrical objects on a chart.
In this activity, learners use recycled materials to build a bridge that holds as many potatoes as possible. They investigate weight, height, strength, and measurement as they seek design solutions.
In this activity (Lesson 1), learners work in groups to create tide simulations.
In this activity, learners build a stuffed-animal zip line. Learners hold a cord against a wall, hook a cute stuffed animal onto it, let the animal slide down, and records its travel time.
In this activity, learners explore Charles' Law in a syringe.
In this activity, learners build a recording timer made from simple materials (e.g., small dc motor, sharpie pen, craft sticks, adding machine paper tape, etc.).
In this design activity, learners create a vehicle that can transport a load, like a favorite toy or as a recycled object, from the top of a zipline to the bottom using only gravity.
In this math lesson, learners predict, interpret, and sketch graphs of functions related to the shapes of bottles. A measure of water is poured into a container.
In this math lesson (page 2 of the PDF), learners use bottles of various shapes to explore the abstract concept of rate of change.
In this math lesson, learners explore the real world meaning of slope. Learners conduct a balloon experiment in which they measure the circumference and flight time of deflating balloons.
In this outdoor activity, learners plan a simple foot path and create an environmental impact study of the natural area where the path would be.
This is an activity in which learners explore the effects of gravity, motion and momentum while creating art.
