How To Grow The Tallest Plant part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This is an activity where students learn about inquiry by designing an experiment on bean plants with the goal of growing the tallest plant. Students work in groups to plan the growing conditions of the control and three experimental plants. Students collect data for about three weeks and analyze their data to see if their hypothesis is correct or not. The end product can be a report presented in a number of ways.

Subject: Biology

Investigating Electricity: Testing for Electrical Conductivity (Conductors and Insulators) Using a Variety of Materials part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this lab, the students will test a variety of materials to discover which items are conductors and which items are insulators. They will discuss, classify, record data, and develop new questions relating to electricity.

Subject: Physics:Electricity & Magnetism

Investigating Germination in Plants: An Inquiry Approach to Germination Growth in Pet Plants part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a lab activity where students grow two radish seeds, and manipulate a variable that may affect the germination time and growth of the radish seed.

Subject: Biology

Investigating oranges - How many sections are inside? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This is an investigative lab to provide students with an opportunity to practice observation skills and develop cooperative group proceedures.

Subject: Biology

Magnets: What "sticks" part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a discovery lab where students will discover what does and does not stick to a magnet.

Subject: Physics:Electricity & Magnetism

Ecosystem Study part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Students will explore and create a healthy ecosystem, once established they will then introduce additional variables which may harm the ecosystem and determine which hazards should be avoided.

Analyzing Forces and Motion Graphs by Riding an Elevator part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is an indoor lab where students will make predictions of what a force vs time and acceleration vs time graph will look like for a ride in an elevator going down and up. Students will collect data remotely using a Force Plate and accelerometer and then download the data to the computer for further analysis.

Subject: Physics:Classical Mechanics

Investigating Erosion part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is an indoor lab where students build a model to observe the effects of weathering and erosion.

Subject: Geoscience

Camping Trip: How can we measure the wavelength of light emitted from stars? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a chance for students to apply the diffraction grating equation m*Λ/d = Θ to solve a real life problem: find the wavelength of given source of light. It is also useful for them to apply trigonometry to real life scenarios.

Subject: Physics:Optics:Diffraction

Investigating Rotation: Why Is There Day and Night? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This is a classroom activity in which students will observe, question, and investigate the relationship between the sun and the earth and how that relationship causes day and night.
