• Smithsonian Center for Education and Museum Studies
In this online interactive challenge, learners choose items to represent the Earth or solar system, then determine other items to represent the Moon, or Milky Way based on their relative size. The...

free Ages 8 - 18 10 to 30 minutes
• 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
• 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...

• Lawrence Hall of Science
How do you measure a bubble when it's floating? You can't really, but in this activity, learners can measure the diameter of the ring of suds a bubble leaves on a flat surface. The fun is...

1 cent - \$1 per student Ages 4 - 14 10 to 30 minutes
• Lunar and Planetary Institute
In this activity, learners measure the diameter of their water balloons, model an impact, measure the diameter of the “crater” area, and determine the ratio of impactor to crater. This activity is...

• The Exploratorium
In this activity, learners make a scale model of an atom to see how big or how small an atom is compared to its nucleus. Learners will realize that most of matter is just empty space! Learners will...

• 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...

• 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...

• 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...
