Beginning Scientific Inquiry with Water Kits part of MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a scientific investigation focusing on inquiry after using the Foss Water Kit. The students will pose a question, create a procedure and produce a poster showing their findings.

Grade Level: Intermediate (3-5)
Subject: Chemistry:General Chemistry:Properties of Matter, , Physics:Fluid Mechanics:Surface Tension
Resource Type: Activities: Activities:Classroom Activity, Lab Activity

Investigating the water cycle "snow fun" part of MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this activity students collect snow in a cup, predict how much water will be in the cup when the snow melts. Students are exposed to evaporation as the water "disappears" over time and try to stop this from happening.

Grade Level: Primary (K-2)
Subject: Chemistry
Resource Type: Activities: Activities:Lab Activity, Classroom Activity

Cartesian Diver Race part of MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activiy with cartesian divers introduces the gas laws in a high school chemisry class.

Grade Level: High School (9-12)
Subject: Physics:Thermodynamics & Statistical Mechanics:Gas Law, Chemistry:General Chemistry:Gas Laws
Resource Type: Activities: Activities:Lab Activity, Classroom Activity

Bowling Balls: Will they Sink or Will they Float? part of MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Students investigate whether a bowling ball will float or sink in an aquarium of water after measuring the ball and determining the density. This is meant to be an investigative inquiry of the concepts of density and significant figures.
