This lesson will prepare students to identify the different types of fires and fire extinguishers and what to do when there is an emergency.
How do rocks become soil? Students will research, document, and demonstrate a chemical or physical weathering process by which sedimentary rock breaks down to begin the formation of soil.
Review the basics of sedimentary rocks and model the rock cycle; beginning with mineral sediments and working through all stages of the cycle, and rediscover the role of weathering and erosion!
The Earth's surface is covered with rocks. In this lesson, students will learn how to identify the three distinct kinds of rocks present: igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks.
In this lesson, students will use what they have learned about parabolas to come up with quadratic equations to model the flight of their rockets. They will also graph the height of their rocket with respect to time.
This lesson introduces students to the graphing form of a parabola. They will learn how to stretch, compress, flip and shift a parabola by manipulating its equation.
Students will learn how to find the x-intercepts and vertex of a parabola from the standard equation. They will also learn how to reverse the process and find a possible equation of a parabola by using the x-intercepts.
This is an introduction to graphing parabolas. Students will learn how to find the x and y intercepts as well as determine whether the parabola opens upward or downward.
Minerals are the basic building blocks of rock and provide the foundation of the rock cycle, a model that describes the formation, breakdown, and reformation of a rock as the result of sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous processes.
This lesson will introduce students to the interviewing skills needed to provide an engaging response to a question using Story Corps as a tool to identify components of a personal story and eventually encourage them to share their own personal stories.
This lesson will give students the opportunity to listen and review their own personal story recorded using the Story Corps application. Their personal stories will be published and archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, a digital, long lasting records of their own personal stories!
This lesson will introduce students to the preparation needed to be interviewed using Story Corps as a tool to identify components of a personal story and eventually encourage them to share their own personal stories.
Students will add sound effects and foley to a spoken story and instrumental music tracks ignored to make the story come to life.
