Metric System Conversions: Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) activity part of MnSCU Partnership:PKAL-MnSCU Activities
This activity helps student learn to convert within the metric system and begin learning about process skill necessary for working in groups.

"Mystery and the Unknown": Teaching Inquiry Through Aquatic Exploration part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a longer project that involves using inquiry to find out what kinds of aquatic animals live in our school pond. Students use direct observation, journaling, outdoor classroom techniques, research skills, collaboration, and service learning to learn about their question.

Electric Circuits - Guided Inquiry part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This is a series of lab activities where students complete experiments for open, closed, series and parallel circuits.

Paper Helicopters: Variables and Experimental Design part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is an experimental investigation in which students use paper helicopters to examine types of variables and how to manipulate variables in experimental design.

Investigating the Geologic Time Scale: Creating posters to Display Trends in Geologic Time part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This observational inquiry activity involving careful descriptions of rocks and fossil including age will be used to create a scalar accurate geologic time scale. Students will observe and learn that the geologic time scale was created based on changes in fossil, rock, and atmospheric changes.

Eggs and the Equinox part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Students test the question, "Do eggs balance on the equinox?" Students develop their own procedure, analyze their data and come up with their own conclusions.

A Student Produced Field Guide to Neighborhood Trees part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
During this project, students will be working to cooperatively create a field guide to trees in the neighborhood near the school. In doing so they will be making observations, introduced to tree and plant anatomy and physiology, and will learn how to make and use dichotomous keys.

Determining the Density, pH and Water Content of Various Area Soils part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this field lab activity, students will determine the density, pH and water content of prairie soil, transition soil, woods soil, and riverbed soil and compare their findings.

Uncovering Plate Tectonics part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a guided investigation into the process of plate tectonics and resulting features. It's a look at the resulting effects which we see as volcanoes, earthquakes, and mountains.

Chemical Reactions: Investigating Exothermic and Endothermic Reactions part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is an inquiry-based investigation where students discover the indicators of chemical reactions (endothermic and exothermic) by collecting data and using that data to develop a testable question for further experimentation.
