Exploring Sound: Length Makes a Difference part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this introductory physics lab activity, students explore the sounds made by the free-end of a ruler vibrating off the end of a desk.

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).

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.

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.

Habitat Part 1 (See Julie Olson's for Part 2) part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This lesson is an introduction to a unit on habitat. It is designed to combine literature and science.

Impact of Natural Disasters on the Earth part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a student based inquiry looking at various natural disasters and their impact.

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.

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.

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.
