In this lesson, students will explore the connection between reforestation and deforestation and greenhouse gases. They’ll do this by collecting data about local trees and analyzing and interpreting data about deforestation and reforestation, which will serve as the example in this lesson of one set of activities that can affect levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Students will apply these ideas to the construction of a written argument that helps answer the driving question: What happens to carbon dioxide levels in our local community when trees are removed or added?

Recognize shapes in Mount Rushmore, whether it’s 2D shapes through a series of 2D drawings, or 3D shapes through measurable PDF’s of the 3D model of Mount Rushmore. Use geometric formulas to calculate the volumes of these shapes based on scaled representations. Effectively use understanding of scale to translate these calculations to life-size.

Students show evidence that the earth rotates by constructing a sundial and recording the location of a shadow throughout the day. Students then determine that the earth rotates one time in a 24 hour period while the sun stays in place. Finally, students create a model of the Earth and Sun to demonstrate what part of the day the Sun’s light is most direct.

Students create an Earth and Sun model to simulate the seasons. Students use the model to demonstrate how Earth’s tilt determines the amount of direct sunlight that can reach each hemisphere, which is the cause of the seasons. Students then build a solar powered car and modify the angle of the solar panel to capture the most light energy.

The goal of this lesson is to help students understand how relationships between the Earth and the sun give rise to patterns that we observe every day and throughout the year, such as the changing length of the day and the directions of shadows. This lesson also encourages students to investigate the interaction between the earth and sun and the average temperatures in both hemispheres during each season. Students will answer the driving question: Why do our shadows change throughout the day?

The contamination of air, water, or soil by substances that are harmful to living organisms. Pollution can occur naturally, for example through volcanic eruptions, or as the result of human activities, such as the spilling of oil or disposal of industrial waste and human activities . The addition of harmful chemicals to the atmosphere. The most serious air pollution results from the burning of fossil fuels, expecially in internal-combustion engines.

Workshop Description: Have you ever had green cherry drink or brown strawberry juice? Some people have! Of course, they were in experiments to see how the color of a drink affects the way the drink tastes. Flavor can be influenced by many factors such as the way a food or drink looks, smells, and feels. Workshop Summary: Can students differentiate the taste of Jell-O or spaghetti independent of their color? Can you create the sensation of an apple pie without using apples?

Workshop Description: Students become familiar with minerals and identifying their different properties. This workshop also introduces students to the deductive process where they will use the results of each property test to identify the name of the mineral from an established key. Workshop Summary: Students learn how to identify and classify rocks using the MOH hardness scale, color, texture, and cleavage. Students learn that the properties of rocks and minerals reflect the processes that form them.

Workshop Description: Chromatography is a technique used to separate mixtures. Many different science fields use chromatography. The technique is used in environmental studies to detect pollution in water and air. Chromatography also is used by crime laboratories to identify clues such as blood, ink, or other substances found at a crime scene. In this workshop students create their own colorful Bandanna design while learning about chromatography. Students separate the ink from permanent colored markers to make a rainbow of colors on their T-Shirt! Workshop Summary: Although they may appear to be pure substances, many materials are mixtures comprised of two...

In this lesson, the students will reenforce what they have learned about energy, specifically solar energy, conservation of energy, angles of incidence in relation to the amount of light reflected which is converted to heat. In coordination with the Math department, the students will learn the math behind the construction of a solar oven which will be the culminating activity that will show the application of the concepts learned from the lesson.
