## Available Lessons

#### Animal Classification

##### Science

Students will learn to classify animals through research and reference presentations. Students will work in collaborative groups, present findings and self-correct.

#### Bench Press Math: Mean, Median and Mode

##### Mathematics, Physical Education

Using reps and max of weightlifting, students will create a frequency table and compute the mean, median and mode.

#### History Through Words: Frederick Douglass

##### Language Arts

Students will perform a picture analysis. Afterwards, a passage will be read from a narrative in Frederick Douglassâ€™ My Bondage and My Freedom and then complete the Pick-a-Pair worksheet.

#### Measure of pH using Vernier Probes

##### Science

Students will work in groups of two to measure pH of freshwater system when crayfish are present in water sample. A control will be set-up and the biology of the crayfish will studied. The pH should increase as the crayfish releases ammonia as a waste product. (Ammonia is a base)

##### Mathematics

In this lesson, the student will learn to compare and contrast between different coins. Using hands-on examples, a document camera to review as a class and presentation software (PowerPoint or Keynote) or video editing software (iMovie or Movie Maker).

#### Skittles Fractions

##### Mathematics

This is a review lesson after the students have already learned about representing fractions. The student will find the fraction of colors in a bite size bag of skittles. They will then predict and discover what color there is the most of in the whole class.

#### Understanding Conservation of Mass in Chemical Reactions

##### Science

Often students cannot understand from chemical formulas how atoms exist in compounds, and how they are rearranged during reaction. Furthermore, the concept of balancing reactions eludes them when they cannot actually see the individual atoms. To illustrate a reaction for them, They are split into groups and given "bingo" type chips of different colors. They then put them into groups as reactants, representing the compounds that enter the reaction. They will then break the bonds of the reactants and attempt to rebond them as products. In most reactions, they will see that without balancing they do not have enough "chips" to complete the reaction. However, if they add more of one or more of the reactants, they can then complete the reaction because they now have enough "chips". They will then transfer findings to a sheet, written as a balanced formula equation.
