STEM Challenge: Sedimentary Rocks Model
STEM Challenge: Sedimentary Rocks Model! Challenge your kiddos to make sedimentary rocks using edible layers! Click on the picture for a STEM discussion and great ideas for a sedimentary rocks lesson! I've adjusted this lesson for three age groups now (preK, kindergarten/1st/2nd grade, & 3rd/4th/5th grade), and they have all loved it!
Rock Layer & Fossil Ages *FREEBIE*
This is a great way to assess your students learning about the ages of rock layers and fossils! Use this as a mid-unit assessment or a summative at the end of your earth science unit! You could even attach this to the student's interactive content notebooks for them to look back at.
The Soap Lab: Chemical or Physical Reaction?
This is a fun way to teach CRE (claims, reasoning and evidence). The topic is physical and chemical change/reactions in matter. This is a hands-on lab that includes informational text, research and CRE writing. Easy set up and clean up, along with little prep.
STEM Activity: Holiday Light Circuits | Nitty Gritty Science
Light Circuits: Depending on the grade level of the students, you can have them build a very simple circuit or a very complex circuit with both series and parallel circuits combined. For my students I have them use file folders in order to design and build a series on one side, then a parallel on the other with certain parameters for the switches. The students have an amazing time and there is always 100% participation and together we saved those lights from a trip to the landfill!
Hurricane STEM Challenge Weather Activity + Digital Distance Learning Version
Fall STEM Hurricane Engineering: This activity is perfect to use to teach students about hurricanes and hurricane safety by designing a building that will withstand a hurricane simulation. Aligns with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). #STEM #stemactivity #fallactivities #fallstem #hurricaneactivities
Plate Tectonics: Brush, Bump and Pull Experiment
Plate Tectonics: Brush, Bump and Pull Experiment. Great way for students to experiment with a hands-on model of plate interaction using styrofoam (tectonic plates) and water (magma in lithosphere). Can model and predict the what various interactions do and even model specific natural disasters such as the Haiti Earthquake. (MY TEKS)
