- Lesson plan -

Students will understand and compare the three methods of heat transfer (conduction, convection and radiation).

### 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.

### Contour Maps

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand that topographic maps show the features of a region, understand how contour lines provide details of the elevation of features and structures, learn how to use topographic maps to draw cross sections.

### Day and Night

- Lesson plan -

Students will: Understand that the spinning of Earth around an imaginary axis (rotation) results in day and night. Compare shadows at various time of the day. Analyze models displaying sunlight on Earth in a 24-hour period.

### Daylight Saving Time

- Lesson plan -

Learn the facts about Daylight Saving Time and practice time calculation with different time zones.

### 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.

### Dinosaurs

- Lesson plan -

Students will: identify the common characteristics of dinosaurs, compare and contrast different types of dinosaurs, understand the current theories of extinction.

### Earth's Atmosphere

- Lesson plan -

Students will: identify the layers of Earth's atmosphere, understand the key characteristics of each layer, understand the importance of each atmospheric layer to life on Earth.

### 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.

### Earth's Structure

- Lesson plan -

Students will identify and describe Earth's layers.

### Earthquakes

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand what causes an earthquake, understand where earthquakes occur, understand how an earthquake's strength is measured, make connections between earthquakes, volcanoes and tectonic plate boundary locations on a map of 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.

### Energy and Work

- Lesson plan -

Students will understand that energy has the ability to cause motion or to create change and that work is done when an object moves a distance or when something undergoes a chemical change.

### 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.

### Floating and Sinking

- Activity -

Through play students will learn which objects float or sink.

### Food Chain

- Activity -

Students identify the living things that are producers and consumers by completing food chains.
