Bloodstain Analysis

6th Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Forensics

Big Idea:The presence of blood can tell us a great deal about when, where, and how a crime occurred. Students will analyze a series of blood stains to investigate the details of a crime.

Reading a Technical Report

8th Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Exploring Engineers and the Design Process

Big Idea:21st Century Learning includes the skill of reading reports for information and directions. This lesson gives students their first experience in reading technical reports.

I Can Measure Mass, Not Weight, With A Triple Beam Balance!

6th Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Scientific Measuring and Variable Testing

Big Idea:Now that students have a clear understanding between mass and weight, they can learn how to measure mass using a triple beam balance. By utilizing free online tools students become comfortable reading a balance before using one.

Going to College

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

The College Project - Working with Decimals

Big Idea:Why is it important to go to college? What advice do older students have for applying to college? Students start to familiarize themselves with applying and attending college. This will serve as a frame for the work they will do throughout the unit.

Measurement: Forces

6th Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Measuring Matter

Big Idea:Forces happen every time objects interact. Students explore how to measure these invisible pushes and pulls.

Appropriate Measure of Central Tendency

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Analyzing Data

Big Idea:Measures of Central Tendency describe the middle point of a distribution of a data set; however, some measures of central tendency better represent the data than others.

Selecting Measures of Center and Variability

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:What are the pros and cons of each measure of center? What are the pros and cons of each measure of variability? Students choose measures of center and variability to represent a data set and justify their choices.

Unit Test

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Statistics

Big Idea:What have students learned during this unit? What gaps do students have in their understanding? Students take the Unit 8 test.

Lights, Camera, Action - Student Inquiry Lab Presentations (Part 5 of 6)

High School Biology
