Title: Magnify It!
In this Science NetLinks lesson, students view objects of various sizes from several viewing distances to discover that their visual field is limited. Students record what they see and compare their observations with classmates in an open, nonjudgmental forum. They have the opportunity to speculate about and experiment freely with magnifying glasses and also conduct more structured experiments.
Standard(s): [S1] (5) 5: Contrast ways in which light rays are bent by concave and convex lenses.
Title: Science NetLinks
The American Association for the Advancement of Science's Science NetLinks strives to be a comprehensive ''homepage'' for K-12 science educators. At the heart of Science NetLinks are standards-based lesson plans that incorporate reviewed Internet resources, and can be selected according to specific benchmarks and grade ranges. Each lesson is tied to at least one learning goal and uses research-based instructional strategies that support student learning. The lessons are written for the teacher, but include student-ready materials such as student sheets (student reproducibles) or E-Sheets (online worksheets that enable students to engage directly in Internet activities). Science NetLinks is a member of the MarcoPolo consortium.
Standard(s): [S1] CHE (9-12) 9: Distinguish between chemical and nuclear reactions.
