Using Inquiry to Discover Stream Formations In a Small Stream part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is an inquiry based field investigation where students measure and map a small stream and then develop an understanding of the formation of a variety of small stream features.

Investigating Acids and Bases: Strong vs Weak part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is an extension to standard labs that have students generate a pH curve from strong acid/strong base data. Students are asked to predict and test how the the titration end point will shift when titrating vinegar (a weak acid) with NaOH (a strong base).

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.

Trends on the Periodic Table: Metals, Non-Metals, and Metalloids part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Students will classify elements as metals, non-metals and metalloids based on their observtions of appearance, conductivity, malleability and reactivity with dilute acid. They will observe the location of these groups on the periodic table.

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.

Digging for Fossils: Studying Fossils as Evidence for Human Evolution part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This lab activity is a paper fossil dig where students discover skeletal characteristics of humans, primates and hominids and are asked to make a short oral presentation to the class.

How do light bulbs work? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This is a guided inquiry in which the students determine how a light bulb works.

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.

Inertia: An object in motion will tend to stay in motion part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity allows students to deduce part of Newton's Law of Inertia that states an object in motion will stay in a straight line motion unless an outside force acts on it.

The Science of Collisons: Using Newton's Laws in Forensics & the Courtroom part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a forensic based physical science inquiry investigation where students collaborate in groups and use observations to determine how Newton's Laws of Motion are applied in finding evidence in a car and truck trailer accident. Their evidence will be used in a presentation to verify consistency in police and witness reports to support the plantiff or defendent in the court case.
