Newton's Second Law
Students will work in partners to investigate Newton’s second law by testing a series of experiments with varying conditions.
Convergent Plate Boundaries
Students will design and test models that will identify crustal features formed by convergent plate boundaries.
Full Speed Ahead
Students will use hover pucks to measure speed over a distance of six meters. Once speed has been calculated, students will determine velocity using the same data. Finally, students will be able to label all points of acceleration.
Matter and Energy - Atomic Structure
Using interactive exercises, students will describe the structure of atoms and the locations of particles with in the atom.
Using interactives, students will demonstrate that gravity is the force that governs the motion of our solar system.
Students will identify how light years are used to measure distances and sizes of components of the universe.
How Global Patterns of Atmospheric Movement Influence Local Weather
Students will identify how global patterns of atmospheric movement influence local weather.
Oceans and Weather Systems
Students will identify the role of the oceans in the formation of weather systems such as hurricanes.
Organisms and Environments - Organisms Interactions
Students will describe producer/consumer, predator/prey, and parasite/host relationships as they occur in food webs.
Organisms and Environments - Competition of Abiotic and Biotic Factors
Students will examine how organisms and populations in an ecosystem depend on and may compete for biotic and abiotic factors such as quantity of light, water, range of temperatures, or soil composition.
Organisms and Environments - Humans and Ocean Systems
Students will identify how humans depend on ocean systems and explain how human activities such as runoff, artificial reefs, or use of resources have modified these systems.
Potential and Kinetic Energy
This resource provides Tier I instruction ideas for Grade 6+ science teachers in the area of potential and kinetic energy.
Introduction to Plate Tectonics
This resource is intended to use for Tier I classroom instruction.
This resource can be used, in conjunction with best practices, for Tier I classroom instruction.
Introducing the Atom
A resource to be used for Tier I instruction for the introduction of the structure of atoms.
The Arrangement of Elements: The Periodic Table
This resource provides flexible alternate or additional learning opportunities for students to interpret the arrangement of elements on the Periodic Table, Eighth Grade Science TEKS (8)(5)(C).
Newton's Law of Inertia
This resource provides instructional resources for Newton's First Law, the law of inertia.
Newton's Law of Action-Reaction
This resource is to support TEKS (8)(6)(C), specifically the Newton's third law or the law of action-reaction.
Dichotomous Keys Murder Mystery
A resource for the instruction of (7)(11)(A) involving the use of dichotomous keys for identification.
Matter and Energy—Chemical Reactions
Given descriptions or illustrations, students will investigate how evidence of chemical reactions indicates that new substances with different properties are formed.
