In this activity, the students will use the “Anatomy of the Wave” video to learn and answer questions about waves. In the video, students will look at the anatomy of waves and learn vocabulary words such as crests, troughs, wavelength, amplitude, frequency, period, and velocity. Finally, students will develop a model of waves through abstract visual art to describe patterns in terms of amplitude and wavelength.
This resource was created as a part of the ALEX Resource Development Summit.
In this learning activity, students will watch a video to review right, acute, and obtuse angles. Students will create various angles using strips of construction paper. Finally, students will measure their newly created angles with a protractor.
This activity was created as a result of the Arts COS Resource Development Summit.
In this learning activity, students will discover how spider webs are made by watching a short video. Students will compare photographs of spider webs and look for patterns. Finally, students will create a 3-dimensional patterned spider web using geometric shapes and lines.
Students will demonstrate their knowledge of animals with bioluminescent characteristics by collaboratively creating a sea animal out of glow in the dark slime. Students will then display their sea animal for the class and explain why their animal uses bioluminescence to survive.
In this activity, students will watch a video to introduce them to the Red Mason Bee. During the video, they will gather evidence about the lifestyle, life cycle, growth, and reproduction of the Red Mason Bee. Students will then create a bee hotel to encourage Red Mason Bees to pollinate in their area.
This learning activity should be completed at the end of a geometry unit or after a lesson on symmetry. The teacher will pose a real-world problem that requires the students to create a design for a stained glass window. Using virtual manipulatives, students will work collaboratively to design a symmetrical stained glass window that has at least one line of symmetry.
This activity should be completed after teaching a lesson on animal adaptations and camouflage. Students will choose an animal and create an artwork by using a series of patterned dots to "camouflage" or blend their animal into the landscape. After completing their artwork, students will examine their artwork and demonstrate their scientific knowledge by answering reflection questions in their science journal.
Students will demonstrate their knowledge of human body systems by creating a work of art that displays the included organs and their functions.
