Make a Model Fossil part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a combination outdoor/indoor lab where students will collect natural materials from the environment and use them to create both a mold and cast model of a fossil. Students will learn how a fossil is formed and why scientists use models to help them understand how things work and develop.

Subject: Geoscience:Paleontology

Animal and Plant Cell Models, Research, 9 M X 9 M Construction, and Cell Tour given to Life Science Students. part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Students build a 9 M X 9 M model of an animal or plant cell with cell organelles inside it and give cell tours to Life Science students. May be done as two large groups, or a whole class project.

Subject: Biology:Cell Biology:Cell Structure

Eye Dropper Rockets part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This lab activity is designed to have students use their knowledge of balancing and identifying chemcial reactions and apply it in a fun and interesting way!

Subject: Chemistry:General Chemistry:Chemical Reactions

Watersheds Urban and Rural part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Students build a model of a watershed, apply water to the model, and explore what happens when elements of the watershed are changed.

Subject: Environmental Science:Water Quality and Quantity, Geoscience:Atmospheric Science:Climatology :Hydrologic cycle

Valence Electrons and Trends in the Periodic Table part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Students will fill in a blank periodic table for elements 1-20 using electron-dot models. As a visual tool students should see several periodic trends.

Subject: Chemistry:General Chemistry:Elements & Periodic Table

Sinking Water: A Connection With Glaciers, Ocean Currents and Weather Patterns part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This lesson has activities where students will learn about buoyancy and explore how hot water rises and cold water sinks. As an extension and real-life application, students will see that glacial run-off is occurring at a rapid pace and the cold glacial water could potentially change ocean currents thus influencing global climates.

Moon Phases Box part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is an observation opportunity for students to view the phases of the moon and learn that the juxtoposition of the Earth and moon dictates the appearance of the moon in the sky.

Subject: Geoscience:Lunar and Planetary Science

What sizes are the planets and how do they move around the sun? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This is an activity to help students understand the abstract concept about how planets move around the sun and their relative size compared with other planets in the solar system.

Subject: Geoscience:Lunar and Planetary Science

Atoms and Molecules part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Both of these lessons are classroom activities that require students to build models that display understanding of atoms and molecules. One lesson is structured while the other is guided.
