Ecosystem Study part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Students will explore and create a healthy ecosystem, once established they will then introduce additional variables which may harm the ecosystem and determine which hazards should be avoided.

Subject: Environmental Science:Ecosystems, Waste:Toxic and Hazardous Wastes, Geoscience

Investigating Erosion part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is an indoor lab where students build a model to observe the effects of weathering and erosion.

Subject: Geoscience

Investigating Rotation: Why Is There Day and Night? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This is a classroom activity in which students will observe, question, and investigate the relationship between the sun and the earth and how that relationship causes day and night.

Subject: Geoscience:Lunar and Planetary Science

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:Atmospheric Science:Meteorology

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: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: 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, 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: 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

What's the Temperature? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Short Description: This activity is a daily lab where two students read a thermometer and identify the cloud type for a week. They record it on the board first and we all record it in our journals. A graph of the entire year is also completed and we can analyze the data as we go. We get two new "scientists" each week and we do it all year. I start the first week of school.
