Investigating Atmospheric Pressure with a Cup, Straw and Water part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a reinforcement lab activity where students experiment with ways to get water to flow out of a cup and up a straw causing an imbalance in the atmospheric pressure surrounding the water.

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Atmospheric Science:Meteorology

High and Low Pressure part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a hands on lesson where students will explore high and low air pressure.

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Atmospheric Science:Meteorology

Mystery Material: Is it a solid or a liquid? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is an investigation of a "mystery material" where students have to determine whether the substance is a solid or a liquid. This activity can be done as part of an earth science or chemistry lesson.

Subject: Geoscience: Chemistry:General Chemistry, Geoscience:Geology

Watershed: Exploring Run-Off and Infiltration in the Classroom part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a classroom based inquiry activity where students will observe how water changes when it is moved through a variety of different mediums. Eventually, the students will take this model to the larger ideas of watershed in the community.

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience, Environmental Science

Investigating Earth and Moon Surface: Impact Craters part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this activity students use a simple model of the moon to do an experiment to see how impact craters are formed. The lesson worksheets are differentiated and students are put into pre-determined teams by ability to conduct the experiment.

Subject: Geoscience: Physics:Classical Mechanics, Geoscience:Lunar and Planetary Science

Earth History: Crayon Rock Cycle part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This is a classroom activity in which students develop understanding of the rock cycle using wax crayons to model the processes that form the 3 types of rock; sedimentary, igneous & metamorphic.

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience

Observing,Comparing and Classifying Rocks part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activitiy is a lab experience where students observe, compare and classify rocks. Close examination of a variety of rocks reveals their differences and can also spark questions regarding their origins.

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Geology

Investigating Soil Composition - Soil Soaks Up Water part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a classroom quick lab where students explore sand, soil, and water in relation to absorption and permeability.

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Soils, Environmental Science:Soils and Agriculture, Geoscience:Hydrology

Indentification of Earth Materials part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
By presenting the students with fossils and other earth materials and giving clues as to their origin, they will be able to identify the fossils and materials and be able to form a hypothesis as to how they were formed and what it was before preservation.

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Paleontology

Exploration of Shadows in the Earth, Moon, and Sun System: Moon Phases and Eclipses part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This guided inquiry activity has students using models to create variations of alignment of the Earth, Moon, and Sun. By varying their arrangement, students will discover how the positions of the Earth, Moon and Sun interact, how shadows can be cast on the Moon and on the Earth, and how Earth's view of the lit portion of the Moon changes.

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Lunar and Planetary Science
