Researching, constructing, and testing (student made) Solar Ovens part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity requires students to research, design, construct, and test a solar oven. Students will collect data from their own individual oven to combine with research of "real-life" solar ovens in an activity ending scientific paper.

Investigating the difference in geology between Crookston High Campus and the Fertile Sand Dunes part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Students will make observations at two different locations and will infer the geological events that happened at each location to explain what they see and create questions for further study.

Investigating Ponds and Streams: How clean is our water? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students gather data on ponds and compare the results to determine the quality of the water.

An Investigation into Geologic Mapping: Quarry Park part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students geologically map a defunct granite quarry in Saint Cloud Minnesota'sr Quarry Park.

Outcrop Investigation: What can our rocks tell us about the past? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students reconstruct parts of Winona's Paleozoic environment through observations of a local outcrop and the application of basic geologic principles.

Investigating how terrain and watersheds are connected part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this activity students will gain an understanding of how terrain affects a watershed. Students will use maps and Google Earth to "get a picture" of the terrain within their watershed. They will use this knowledge to create an investigation of their stream which will help answer student generated questions about the connection of terrain and water systems.

Investigating Lava Flows and Their Imapct on Shoreline Features part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Short Description This activity is a field investigation where students construct a diagram of a lava flow from top to bottom based on observations made in the field and then attempting to make connections between the lava flow features and the resulting shape of the shoreline of Lake Superior.

Investigating Our Surroundings: Observing the Outdoors part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This first grade field and classroom activity leads students to discover their natural world through observation and measurement.

Dissecting Soil part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students find out what makes up soil.

Dissecting Soil part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students find out what makes up soil.

2-Day Investigating Soil Samples: observing and identifying soils part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is designed for a primary classroom (outdoors & indoors) investigation where students collect and investigate soil samples and describe the soils, looking for similarities and differences. Students develop a method of recording the data colleted and can present the information gathered.
