# Natural technology Sort

### Static Electricity

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand the nature of static electricity, understand that static electricity is caused by positive and negative charges, understand that “like” charges repel and “unlike” charges attract each other.

### Conductors and Insulators

- Lesson plan -

Students will: review the parts of a simple circuit, understand the meaning of the conductor and insulator, identify whether particular solids and fluids are conductors or insulators using virtual experiments. ### Sound Waves

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand that sound is a vibration that travels in waves, understand frequency and amplitude, and how they define the pitch and loudness or softness of a sound.

### The Electromagnetic Spectrum

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand the spectrum of wavelengths such as radio waves, microwaves, and x-rays, understand that many of these waves are found in our daily lives but are invisible to us. ### The Gas Laws

- Lesson plan -

Students will: explore the relationship between temperature, pressure and volume in gases, investigate and understand Charles’ Law and Boyle’s Law.

### Nuclear Reactions

- Lesson plan -

Students will: compare and contrast chemical reactions and nuclear reactions, identify and describe fusion and fission, understand forms of radioactive decay. ### Mass and Volume

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand the concepts of mass and volume, and how they are measured, learn about the Law of Conservation of Mass, learn about Archimedes’s displacement method, distinguish between mass and weight, be introduced to the concept of density.

### Density

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand density, and how to calculate it by dividing mass by volume, compare the density of a variety of objects and substances. ### Traits in our Classroom

- Lesson plan -

Students will understand how various traits can be passed from parent to offspring.

### Graphing Motion

- Lesson plan -

Students will: learn to graph motion, interpret motion graphs of distance vs. time, velocity vs. time, and acceleration vs. time. ### Gravity

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand that all objects exert a gravitational pull on each other, understand that the mass of an object and its proximity to another object will increase the strength of gravitational pull, understand the role gravity plays on Earth.

### Electromagnets

- Lesson plan -

Students will: discover how to create electromagnets, how the strength of an electromagnet can be altered by changing elements such as the number of coils or the strength of the electric current, recognize how electromagnets differ from permanent magnets. ### Voltage, Current and Resistance

- Lesson plan -

Students will: define and compare and contrast voltage, current and resistance, experiment with the relationship between electrical quantities, understand and make calculations using Ohm’s law.

### Buoyancy

- Lesson plan -

Students will: define buoyancy, explore the concepts behind Archimedes’ principle, investigate how and why the shape of an object can determine whether it floats or sinks. ### Potential and Kinetic Energy

- Lesson plan -

Students will explore ways in energy can be transformed from one form to another.

### Specific Heat

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand that the specific heat of a substance is the amount of heat energy needed to raise the temperature of one gram of that substance by one degree Celsius, understand the specific heat equation.
