This is a PowerPoint to be utilized during the Human Growth and Development Unit. It covers fertilization, development of a fetus, pregnancy and delivery, as well as complications of pregnancy and delivery.
In nature most elements occur as a mixture of two or more isotopes. Eachisotope of an element has a fixed mass with a natural percent abundance. The mass of theelement needs to reflect the masses of these isotopes in their respective abundances. Giventhe masses and abundances, how is the Average Atomic Mass determined?
In this activity, you will determine the atomic mass of the fictitous element Candium.
Basic inline skating skills with links to the actual skills on Youtube and a short quiz.

This is a reflection sheet used with 4th and 5th grade students after they have completed their fitness testing in the Fall. They will participate in the testing process again in the Winter and Spring. They are reflecting on their currcunt fitness levels and setting goals to achieve by the 3rd testing to take place in the Spring of that school year.
This powerpoint is an introduction to the use of figurative language. It uses definitions and visual examples to assist students with the various types of figurative language. There is a quiz at the end of the slide show to assess student learning/understanding of figurative language.
In this lesson on Theme, students will first view the video on Theme to activate background knowledge. Then, students will complete a story map to practice the skill of identifying the term theme.
This resource is a kinaesthetic activity that allows students to book hogs into a hypothetical hotel, called the Hog Hilton. Students use laminated hogs on table tops to show how the rooms in the hotel will fill according to a few simple rules (which align with rules governing electron configuration in atoms). For example, "Rule 1: Hogs are Lazy" simulates the Aufbau Principle (in which electrons will occupy the lowest available orbital. "Hogs can't stand each other, except when Rule #1 forces them to put up with each other" also corresponds to Hund's Rule (each orbital on a sub level will accommodate one electron before any electrons are paired up). This forces students to place one hog in each room on a sub level before they get a room mate. "If Hogs are in the same room, they will not face each other" aligns with the Pauli Exclusion Principle (an orbital will can hold two electrons with opposite spins). The only physical way the laminated pigs cannot face each other is if one is one is standing and the other is lying on its back.
This lesson is the first of a two-part series on the properties and uses of different materials.In Materials 1: Materials and Manufacturing, the familiar tale of The Three Little Pigs is used as an introduction to materials and manufacturing. Students examine the properties, limitations, and durability of a variety of materials, then evaluate which of the materials would be best for building a model house. If used in its entirety, this lesson could take several science class times.In Materials 2: Recycled Materials, students are introduced to the idea that some materials can be recycled.
We use examples of a plant and a beanstalk growing exponentially and ask kids to determine the height of these plants in the future (growing at the same rate). Students skip ahead several inputs and are forced to consider a rule to model the situation. Next we ask students to think about how they might work backwards. If you know the height of a plant during its 9th month, how can you find it's height at the 8th and 7th months. Finally we ask them to consider how tall these plants were before they were purchased (again assuming that they were growing at the same rate). Students use this context to see the pattern of powers and develop an understanding of why positive whole numbers raised to a negative exponent result in a fraction (not a negative number).
Students will use a pully system (one provided by teacher or created from VEX equipment if have it available) to measure components and identify relationships between the three components of Newton's 2nd Law (force, mass, acceleration). In this lesson, students will change either mass or force to calculate acceleration of a cart over a specific distance. Students will be able to identify the relationship between force and acceleration for Part A of the activity and then the relationship between mass and acceleration for Part B. In Part A of the activity, students will change the force pulling on the cart and keep the mass of the cart the same to calculate acceleration. In Part B of the activity, students will change the mass of the cart and keep the pulling force the same to calculate acceleration. Students will gather their data and constuct a graph representing the data gathered and identifying the relationship between acceleration and mass or force. I have added the component that once all data is gathered from the experiment, students will write and document their results in a full lab report.
This resource provides a bank of exercises for students to choose and work with. The exercises are categorized by target area and level of difficulty. Included in the resource is video footage of how to execute the exercise, serving as a visual learning tool for the learner. Additional options exist with this resource, including body weight exercises, TRX exercises, and dumbbell exercises.
This is a PowerPoint Tic-Tac-Toe Game where students work out probability word problems with multiple choice answers and it either dings or buzzes for correct or incorrect answers. The board also gives either an X or an O in blue or Yellow when the correct answer is given.
Help students create a reading log and goal that is not associated primarily with AR points. Help them to understand where they are at and where they want to go.
