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.

Investigating the Stories of the Land part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection

Investigating Newton's 3rd Law: Coin Flick part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a structured inquiry for students to observe how Newton's 3rd law of motion which states that to every action there must be an equal reaction. By flicking a set # of coin into a row of coins they will observe the force of the impact being passed along until the last coin flies off when no other coin prevents it from moving.

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.

Investigating best amount of water to fly a bottle rocket part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
