Composing Like Beethoven
Students will review music vocabulary, name notes using flashcards, and create and present a 4/4 composition using rhythm sticks and other available instruments.
Types of Science Investigations
Students will distinguish between descriptive, comparative, and experimental investigations.
Given investigation scenarios and lab procedures, students will identify independent variables, dependent variables, constants, and control groups.
Save the Factory!
Students will design an experiment to test the outcome of friction in force and motion. The students will create an inclined plane demonstrating their knowledge of mechanical energy and the effects of gravity on an object. Students will use previous knowledge of friction to complete their task of stopping their object. Critical thinking skills will be the focus of the lesson as students will have to utilize their scientific problem-solving skills to make decisions regarding their experiment.

In these segments, artist Mark Ecko discusses what motivates him to create his art, and what "creativity" means to him. This resource teaches students what "motivation" and "creativity" mean, and empowers students to create their own art.
Motion of the Ocean | Nature Cat
Sing along with Nature Cat, Nature Dog, and their friends and learn about how the ocean currents work with this “Motion of the Ocean” song! From the Nature Cat: Ocean Commotion special.
How to Travel Around the World | Nature Cat
In this fun clip from Nature Cat: Ocean Commotion, Nature Dog and Sputnik form an unlikely alliance to rescue Mr. Chewinsky and in the process, they find out whether it’s possible to travel around the world using only the ocean currents.
States of Matter Fitness
In this 3rd through 5th grade video, students use their science knowledge and apply it using physical activity! Learning about the stages of matter, solid, liquid and gas, students perform an exercise for each as the teacher calls out an object such as soup or fog.
