• The Exploratorium
In this activity, learners investigate the relative growth of lengths, areas, and volumes as cylinders are scaled up. Learners connect their experience with cylinders to the world outside the...

\$1 - \$5 per group Ages 8 - 14 1 to 2 hours
• Lunar and Planetary Institute
In this activity, learners work in pairs to measure each other's ankles with lengths of string. Learners make measurements both before and after lying on their backs with their feet in the air...

\$1 - \$5 per group Ages 8 - 14 5 to 10 minutes
• The University of Texas McDonald Observatory
In this activity, learners observe colors in the flame of a burning candle to explore connections between matter, light, color and temperature -- basic concepts of matter and energy. Then, learners...

\$1 - \$5 per group Ages 14 - 18 45 to 60 minutes
• PBS
In this math lesson, learners practice measurement skills as they examine a soap bubble print. Learners follow a recipe to make a soap bubble solution. They use the soapy solution to blow large...

\$1 - \$5 per group Ages 8 - 11 45 to 60 minutes
• Lawrence Hall of Science
Using a real-size sketch of a baby elephant's footprint, learners estimate, measure and record the width (diameter) and outside edge length (perimeter or circumference) of the footprint. Then...

1 cent - \$1 per group Ages 4 - 11 30 to 45 minutes
• COSI
In this mathematics activity (page 4 of the PDF), learners will explore the relationship between the diameter and circumference of an object. They will see that no matter what the object, these...

\$1 - \$5 per student Ages 11 - 18 10 to 30 minutes
• University of Southern Mississippi
In this activity, learners prepare four polymer elastomers and then compare their physical properties, such as texture, color, size, and bounce height. This activity is a fun way for learners to...

\$5 - \$10 per group Ages 4 - 14 1 to 2 hours
• The Exploratorium
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. Learners then...

\$1 - \$5 per group Ages 11 - 18 30 to 45 minutes
• NASA
In this activity, learners experiment and collect data during a simulation of the fluid shifts experienced by astronauts' bodies in microgravity. The resource includes a link to an article and...

• NOAA
In this activity, learners will measure the length of their shadow from the Sun and compare it three to four months later. This process will help learners investigate Earth's rotation and...
