A Lucky Charm Sort

Grade: K
Science

Students will sort Lucky Charms based on shapes, using a table to record the answers.

Acting Styles and Their Practitioners: Research and Presentation

Grade: 12
Theater, Technology

The purpose of this project will be for students to research acting styles and their practitioners. Using this research, they will create a video (iMovie or MovieMaker) or traditional presentation (Keynote / PowerPoint) and present this to the class.

Alphabet Mystery

Grade: K
Language Arts, Technology

In this lesson, the student will prove whether a text is fact or fiction, discuss the main idea in the story Alphabet Mystery by Audrey Wood and complete a snake alphabet worksheet.

History Through Words: Frederick Douglass

Grade: 11
Language Arts, Social Studies

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

Political Cartoon Analysis

Grade: 11
Social Studies

Students will perform research for political cartoons and analyze their features and significance. Web browsing will be implemented as well as spiral-question analysis in order to complete the first segment of the activity. Further assessment includes a brief writing assignment.

Push or Pull?

Grade: K
Science

It takes energy to change the motion of objects. Energy change is understood by force- a push or pull. Some forces act through physical contact, while others act at a distance. The student will understand what force, push and pull is.

Reflective Writing: "How I felt on the first day of school"

Grade: K
Health, Language Arts

Students will complete a writing activity based on the prompt: "How I felt on the first day of school" using photos of different emotions.

Students will perform a webquest on the Tulsa Riots of 1921 and other historic tragedies as well as perform comparisons. Critical thinking will allow students to develop a deeper understanding of tragedies and consider approaches to societal problems through discussion and presentation.

Understanding Conservation of Mass in Chemical Reactions

Grade: 11
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.

Understanding the Law of Conservation of Mass

Grade: 11
Science

Using the COW, students will use either the program FRAMES or the flip camera and movie maker (their choice) to animate a chemical reaction in order to illustrate that all atoms involved are present at the beginning and end of the reaction, and that matter is neither created or destroyed.
