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

Making Hydrogen Gas From a Decomposition Reaction part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This is a lab designed to allow students to create and collect gas through a simple acid-metal reaction.

Subject: Chemistry:General Chemistry:Gas Laws, Physics:Thermodynamics & Statistical Mechanics:Gas Law

Direction of Acceleration part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this short lab, students observe the movement of an air bubble in a small level, attached to a toy truck, as it is moved from a stop, to a steady speed and back to a stop. This gives a visual to the concepts positive acceleration, zero acceleration and negative acceleration.

Subject: Physics:Classical Mechanics:Motion in One Dimension

Measuring Liquid Volume part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is an inside lab experiment where the students combine primary colored liquids correctly to create a rainbow.

Subject: Chemistry

Investigating pH of common household substances part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a classroom lab where students test common household liquids for pH level on the pH continuum, 1-14. They compare and contrast everyday use of the liquids, and how this relates to the liquids' pH property.

Subject: Chemistry:General Chemistry:Acids & Bases,

Growing Lima Beans: Do We Really Need Dirt? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is an indoor lab investigation where students compare and contrast different growing environments for a lima bean seed and discover the optimal conditions needed for growth.
