Nitrogen: The Effects from Properties vs. Amount

This is a lesson where learners explore the benefits of an inert gas (nitrogen) to life. The lesson models scientific inquiry using the 5E instructional model and includes teacher notes, prerequisite concepts, common misconceptions, student journal and reading.

Astro-Venture Atmosphere Unit - Conclusion: Summarizing Learning

In this concluding lesson to the Astro-Venture Atmospheric Unit, students review and summarize their learning in a final project. Learners will draw and explain concept maps that show how the gases in the atmosphere interact with many different systems to support human habitability.

Plate Tectonics and Volcanism

This is a lesson where learners explore plate movement and the relationship between plate tectonics and volcanoes. The lesson models scientific inquiry using the 5E instructional model and includes teacher notes, prerequisite concepts, common misconceptions, student journal and reading.

Matter and Molecules

This is a lesson about the particulate nature of matter. Learners will use their bodies to model the connections between molecules in the three states of matter. They then create a poster that illustrates and explains these connections.

Consumers Get Energy from Other Living Things

This is a lesson where learners explore how animals obtain and store energy, and draw conclusions about the interconnectedness of living things in the flow of energy.

Atmospheric Science Training Module

This is a lesson where learners review the basic requirements for human survival. Using an online, multimedia module, they change amounts of gases in our atmosphere and draw conclusions about the amount of each gas that is necessary for human survival.

Producers Make Their Own Food

In this lesson learners explore the process of photosynthesis and draw conclusions about the important role producers play in the flow of energy.

Atmospheric Mass

Learners will look for the relationship between atmospheric mass and other characteristics of a planet. When the results are not completely conclusive, the students explore possible causes of discrepancies in the data.

Disrupting the System

This is a lesson that sets up the final project for the Astronomy unit. Learners will research the requirements for human survival and analyze the planets and moons in our solar system to assess the ability of each to support human survival.

Biology Training Module

This is a lesson about the basic requirements for human survival. Learners will use an online, multimedia module, in which they make changes to the ecosystem and draw conclusions about the biologic conditions that are necessary for human survival.
