### Extinct and Endangered Animals

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand extinction and how species become extinct or endangered, identify some endangered species and understand the reasons why these species are endangered.

### Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle

- Lesson plan -

Students will: explore and understand why it is important to reduce, reuse and recycle materials, explore the effects of pollution on Earth and living organisms, identify ways to reduce, reuse and recycle materials in their everyday lives.

### Changing Motion

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand that motion is the change in the position of an object which is caused by a force (a push or a pull), recognize speed as a measure of motion and be introduced to friction as a force which causes an object to slow down and stop.

### Programmable Robot Introduction

- Lesson plan -

Learn basic skills of coding such as sequencing a set of instructions. This introduction lesson helps you and your students explore the possibilities of the Programmable Robot tool.

### Transferring Energy

- Lesson plan -

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

### Moon Phases

- Lesson plan -

Students will identify the various moon phases and the time periods in which they occur. They will also understand the relationship between tides the moon phases.

### Landslides

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand the causes and effects of landslides, explore ways to prevent and protect against landslides.

### Earth's History through Rocks, Fossils and Tree Rings

- Lesson plan -

Students will learn how fossils, rocks, and tree rings help us to understand—and help provide a timeline for— Earth’s history.

### Ways an Object Will Move

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand the different ways an object can move (e.g., side to side, back and forth, zigzag, straight line, round and round), understand that motion is the result of a force, understand that a force is a push or a pull.

### 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.
