Calculating Resilience, Tipping Points, and Restoration for Lakes at Risk from Acid Rain part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching about Risk and Resilience:Activities
This activity is about the resilience of watersheds at risk from acid rain, how they can lose their resilience and become dysfunctional when a tipping point is transgressed, and how the ecosystem can recover as a result of natural replenishment processes and laws enacted to reduce pollutant inputs.
Resources for using PhET simulations in class – PhET Activities Database part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:PhET Interactive Science Simulations:Examples
The PhET Activities Database is a collection of resources for using PhET sims. It includes hundreds of lesson plans, homework assignments, labs, clicker questions, and more. Some activities have been created by the PhET team and some have been created by teachers.
Using Properties to Identify Ionic and Molecular Compounds part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
An inquiry activity for students to test physical properties of several compounds to analyze data and determine if the compound is ionic or covalent. This is ideal for an introduction to ionic and molecular compound nomenclature.
Mineral Density: Teaching accuracy, slope, and percent error in the Earth science classroom part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a lab investigation in which students make mass/volume measurements of several samples of the same mineral to determine the mineral's density. Students graph their data and make the connection between their qualitative understanding of what density is and the mathematical/graphical representation of density.
