Let your high school or middle school science class solve the crime while they practice applying the scientific method! Lab instructions, student and teacher worksheets, and materials lists for the activity are included.
This project correlates with my unit on forces and motion in my physical science middle school class. Over a span of three days, students design a car that will protect a raw egg from breaking when it hits the ground after being on a ramp. The students will then test and modify their design.
Why learn geography when you can save the world from a zombie apocalypse?In this PBL unit, students will learn about different types of maps through analyzing data and maps of the Eastern Hemisphere. Students will then apply their geographic knowledge to create six different types of maps that depict the geographically altered, post-apocalyptic world. Would have to do more research into this, but it sounds like an engaging project to teach geography skills.
STEM activities are perfect for upper elementary and middle school students. Whether you choose to use them during the school year, right before breaks or as an assessment for a unit, they are fun and engaging for students. I love watching my students become creative and learn through their designs. Have you tried one yet?
