Investigate Chemical Changes - What are some signs of chemical change? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a classroom lab activity that demonstrates chemical change in a dramatic way using a few inexpensive, easily obtainable materials.

Subject: Chemistry:General Chemistry

Investigating Patterns: An introduction to Mendeleev, periodicity, and the Periodic Table part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a puzzle where students organize samples and look for patterns in order to predict properties of missing puzzle pieces. The students then relate their experience to the historical development of the Periodic Table and the ways that the Periodic Table can be used to predict the properties of the elements.

Subject: Chemistry:General Chemistry:Elements & Periodic Table

Growing Crystals--Physical and Chemical changes part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a classroom lab where students will conduct a controlled activity resulting in the growth of salt crystals, showing a dramatic physical change.

Subject: Chemistry

How Wind Affects Various Objects part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a center investigation where students learn about wind force using a fan/wind tunnel and objects.

Fluids in Motion: Introduction to Bernoulli part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This is an in-class activity that helps introduce the idea of Bernoulli's Principle, and fluid of motion

Subject: Physics:Fluid Mechanics:Dynamics of Fluids

Investigating Osmosis using water and gummy bears part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a classroom lab where the students gather data on the affect water has on gummy bear candies and develops an experiment based on a new question regarding a not plain water solution. Students will perform calculations and graph their results.

Subject: Biology:Cell Biology:Cell Processes:Membrane Transport

Acceleration of a Wheel and Axle part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Students make a wheel and axle out of cardboard and a wooden dowel. It is rooled along a ramp made of parallel meter sticks, and the acceleration can be made small enough to make accurate measurements and calculations.

Subject: Physics:Classical Mechanics:Motion in One Dimension

Maximizing Displacement: Mass, Volume and Density part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This is an indoor lab that uses a boat simulation to demonstrate the concepts of mass, volume and density, and their relationship to displacement. It is a problem solving activity that encourages student creativity resulting in a variety of valid solutions.

Subject: Chemistry:General Chemistry:Properties of Matter

Measuring Reaction Time part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This is a physics lab where students test their reaction time by using the acceleration due to gravity. The use of Excel is introduced in this lab to analyze data.

Subject: Physics:Classical Mechanics:Gravity

Replicating Colors: Using tints, shades and primary colors part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this activity, students will mix paints and create a formula to match a muted color. The formula will be tested. Students will discuss their observations and develop new questions about color mixing to pursue.

Subject: Physics:Optics
