### Renewable and Non-Renewable Energy

- Lesson plan -

Students will: compare and contrast renewable and non-renewable energy, understand what fossil fuels are and how they are formed, study how electricity can be generated from a variety of energy sources.

### Newton's Three Laws of Motion

- Lesson plan -

Students will understand and explore Newton’s three laws of motion.

- Lesson plan -

Students will use math skills to determine how much paint to use and to keep the project on budget. They will use science to determine the best buy in paint. They will use technology and engineering to create the best furniture layout.

### Transferring Energy

- Lesson plan -

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

### 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.

### Graphing Motion

- Lesson plan -

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

### 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.

### Movement of Light Energy

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand the visible light spectrum, explore the ways light can be reflected, refracted and absorbed.

### Make a Computer Program

- Lesson plan -

Students cooperate and learn the basics of computer programming. One student plays the role of the programmer. The other plays the role of the computer.

### Properties of Light

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand that light has a source, travels in a direction, can be blocked to make shadows, and reflect off mirrors and other surfaces, objects are seen when light travels from an object into the eye.

### 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.

### Traits in our Classroom

- Lesson plan -

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

### 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.
