ALEX Lesson Plans


Subject: Science (9 - 12)
Title: Actions at Plate Boundaries
Description: This lesson will allow the students to understand the cause and effects of plates interactions. The students will learn that plate boundaries function as a release for much of the Earth's potential energy. The students will be able to identify topographic features located in geographic areas close to plate boundaries.This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project, funded by the Malone Family Foundation.


Subject: Science (9 - 12)
Title: Igneous Rocks
Description: This lesson will define an igneous rock. It will associate terms that classify igenous rocks. It will apply mineral size to location of the rock. It will develop connections to the rock cycle from the aspect of igenous rocks. This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.


Subject: Science (9 - 12)
Title: Metamorphic Rocks
Description: This lesson will develop the student's ability to identify the different types of Metamorphic rock. It will associate the processes that create varying forms of metamorphic rocks. It will differentiate the types through texture and form.This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.


Subject: Science (9 - 12)
Title: Sedimentary Rocks
Description: This lesson will define a sedimentary rock. It will associate terms that classify sedimentary rocks. It will apply grain size, composition to environments of deposition of the rock. It will develop connections to the rock cycle from the aspect of sedimentary rocks. This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.


Subject: Science (9 - 12)
Title: Continental Drift
Description: This lesson incorporates collaborative groups. It will introduce the basic principles that lead to the theory of Plate Tectonics. It should allow them to recognize our world as a "living" planet" that is constantly changing. This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.


Subject: Arts Education (7 - 12), or Mathematics (9 - 12), or Science (9 - 12)
Title: Properties of Minerals
Description: This lesson will motivate students to recognize the basic building blocks of our planet. They will develop skills of observation and analysis. The students will begin the process of forensics on the basis of investigation and drawing conclusions from observations.This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.


Subject: Science (9 - 12)
Title: Plate Tectonics
Description: This lesson culminates the hypothesis of Continental Drift and Sea floor Spreading into the Plate Tectonic Theory. The students will be able to recognize that our planet is ever changing. They should be able to analyze the forces which create destruction on our planet are directly related to its shifting surface.This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.
