How to Get From Here to There
Students develop a theory of plate tectonics looking at how different density liquids have different convection patterns. Students will record observations in their journal.
VISCOSITY and FALL SPEED
This set of short lessons is intended to use viscosity as a concept to set up understanding of the convective motion of various fluids. The lessons will more broadly deal with important science inquiry skills such as forming and revising meaningful ideas, making inferences, gathering data, and sharing information with others. Key words: viscosity middle school convection inquiry experiment hypothesis data conclusion variables distance speed time
Using Density to Predict Planetary Differentiation
This is an inquiry based lesson designed for middle school students. This lesson serves as an informal assessment of students' understanding of density and also serves as an introduction to Planetary formation and Planetary differentiation.
