Living Things and Their Structures

Students go on an observational walk and look for living things. They will take notes of the living things they see and identify the structures they use to help them survive in their environment. 

Structures and Behaviors of Plants and Animals

The teacher will begin with a “Shout It Out” activity for students to identify the different traits plants and animals need to survive. Once students understand the basic needs of life, they will create and label a Venn diagram; one side for plants and the other side for animals. Students will then look at a series of pictures and write down similarities and differences of the characteristics of each plant and animal on the Venn diagrams they have created. As an extension, the teacher will divide the class into teams to talk about the story of the "Three Little Pigs" and how their behaviors (building different types of houses) affected their survival. The teams of students will then create a short story that features adaptations.

Engineering an Obstacle Course

Students will plan and create an obstacle course using household and outdoor materials. They will test their designs and share their findings in a discussion inside of Google Classroom and respond to other students.

Plant Survival

During this activity students will learn what is needed for a tomato plant to survive.  Students will accomplish this by creating a hypothesis, placing plants in various environments and recording their results.

Impact of Humans on the Surrounding Environment

Have your students use the Google Science Journal app to investigate how humans are impacting their surrounding environment. 

Plant Defenses

In this Teq-tivity students will learn about the different ways that some plants defend themselves and they will be able to compare these plants to the ones they see in their environment.  

Animal Traits

Students will learn about inherited traits that are passed down from parent to offsprings.

Atom Builder Lesson

To review the atomic structure of atoms and how this affects their ability to combine in chemical reactions, this lesson allows students to draw their structure using cloned objects and consult several Periodic Table resources.

Forces, Push and Pull

Students will learn the effects of force (push and pull on an object) Students will be able to model what the two forces, push and pull, look like by demonstrating how they use them at home.Students will understand motion and what causes it.

Rocks

 Students will be able to describe and identify the different types of rocks as they learn about the different stages of the rock cycle. Use this activity during your Rock unit or if you just want to do a fun rock activity with your students. 

Ciclo De Las Rocas

Este video lo ayudará a comenzar a hablar sobre el ciclo del rock con sus estudiantes. Los estudiantes podrán identificar las diferentes etapas del ciclo de una roca y podrán describir e identificar los diferentes tipos de rocas.

Self-Paced Refraction Lab

Students will conduct a self-paced lab on refraction using Google Slides and Pear Deck to facilitate their report.

Makey Makey - Insulators and Conductors

What types of materials are conductive?  Join me as I demonstrate a lesson using our Makey Makey board as students explore the concept of insulators and conductors.

Makey Makey - With Gamepads

In this lesson demostration, students make a gamepad using Play Doh.  I show how to test the gamepad out with Scratch programs and also some online free games.  This will all lead up to Game Design as students become more familiar with creating circuits on the Makey Makey board.
