Designing and Conducting a Chemical Reaction Lab
Restricted Use
Copyright Restricted
Rating
0.0 stars

Students observe a chemical reaction with hydrogen peroxide and potatoes. The class identifies and then selects a variable that could be changed, are guided to write a valid investigation that tests that variable, and then performs the investigation and analyzes the data. Then, in pairs, students select a different chemical reaction, select a variable to test, write a valid experiment that tests that variable, analyze their data and share their claims and evidence

How do synthetic materials impact society? Case Study: Ceramics
Restricted Use
Copyright Restricted
Rating
0.0 stars

Museum archaeologists and educators lead students through this phenomenon-based investigation to identify and explain the difference between natural materials and synthetic materials. Students use early ceramics as a case study to evaluate how this early synthetic material impacted the lives of people who used them.
NHMU Research Quests are phenomena-based, online investigations asynchronously led by museum educators and scientists that are rooted in museum research and collections. Resources include teacher instructional guides, formative and summative assessments, and student notebooks. A free educator acount is required to access the materials.

Lesson Plan 8.1.6 Conservation of Matter
Restricted Use
Copyright Restricted
Rating
0.0 stars

Students will observe the change in mass of steel wool after burning. They will model (draw) what happened to the wool during combustion. Students will plan and carry out an investigation of the conservation of matter in three chemical reactions. Students will make physical models of atoms, molecules, and chemical reactions. Students will then use computer simulations to continue making sense of the conservation of mass in chemical reactions.

Rating
0.0 stars

This is an interactive, 8th-grade Nearpod lesson tied to SEEd standard 8.2.2. It guides students through information and activities about gravitational potential energy.
This resource is a student-ready, three-dimensional SEEd science lesson you can add to your Nearpod library. Many of the phenomena, text, and images come from UEN OER textbooks, Seedstorylines.org, ck12.org, and pixabay.com. Most videos are from youtube.com or pbslearningmedia.org. Many of the simulations were found at phet.colorado.edu, ck12.org, and pbslearningmedia.org. This lesson is unique to Nebo School District but was built with the help of many amazing ideas from teachers throughout Utah.

Rating
0.0 stars

The Science Core Guides are created to provide guidance for developing effective instruction aligned to the Utah Science with Engineering Education (SEEd) Standards. They are intended to support teachers, administrators, science specialists, instructional coaches, parents, and other stakeholders as they plan instruction at a local level.

The Core Guides are not intended to be read from cover to cover. They are meant as a resource document to be used, when needed, to support teacher professional learning and curriculum decisions. They are not meant to be used by students, and therefore they may not be written in student-friendly language. The Core Guides are meant to inform teachers and leaders as they make science curriculum decisions.
