This lab utilizes teacher directions, student directions, and supplementary student sheets. It allows students to use manipulatives as bird beaks to "eat" different foods from different environments. Students are able to garner their data over a 2-day process, which serves as a wonderful discussion piece for how physical adaptations occur over time within populations; and specific adaptations are better suited for specific environments. There are discussion questions built within the data collection sheet, as well as recommended extension activities in the teacher directions.

In this activity, students conduct a constructivist warm-up activity with sand and water.
Next, they receive brief introductory information about erosion, and basic vocabulary is front-laoded through the use of Frayer Model graphic organizers.
Students then conduct simple investigations to collect data on erosion rates of different Earth materials (waves, wind, water, glaciers). Students will rotate through the stations (one lab for each They will rank their investigations to evaluate the most efficient agent of erosion.
This is a quick-hit hands-on lesson that would best be used to introduce the different causes of weathering and erosion.  While not the most rigorous, it does provide engagement and the opportunity for all to learn in a multi-modal set of activities.

In this lesson from Discovery Education students work in small groups at several stations to explore sounds with a variety of materials and different mediums.  Students make observations at each station while they explore to help them to explain that sound is created from vibrations and travel as waves. The resource includes suggestions for using a KWL chart to synthsize student learning from the activity as well as suggestions for further reading and extensions to the activity.
