STEAM: Middle School NGSS LS Save the Cacao Plant, Engeerin: Invent a Candy Bar, Art: Wrapper Design

STEAM: Middle School NGSS LS Save the Cacao Plant, Engeerin: Invent a Candy Bar, Art: Wrapper Design

This is a STEAM unit for middle school science that contains template pages for a "Save the Cacao Plant (NGSS LS3.A, 3.B, 2-4), an engineering design process to invent a candy bar and an art project to create a candy wrapper based on the science of color in marketing. This STEAM unit contains templates for three distinct, integrated projects. The first is science - where students will use the NGSS scientific method to read research (two pages included as well as vetted links to more research) and work to save chocolate from extinction. There is also a PowerPoint to help demonstrate how the scientific method process works - with differentiated student templates for students to follow along. In the second section, students are engineers and their task is to use the engineering design process to invent a candy bar. In the last project, students use the psychology of color to create a candy bar wrapper. This section contains a PowerPoint on the Psychology of Color. All three projects/labs can be done individually or in groups. This is an engaging way to teach NGSS - as it uses topics students can relate to. • NGSS Save the Cacao Plant - Middle School Standards LS3.A, LS3.B, developing and using models, LS2.4. • NGSS Engineering: Middle School ET-S1.1 and ET-S1.2 • National Art Standards - Anchor Standard - 2.3.7A for middle school The student pages are template based and include a lesson on the scientific method NGSS-style. This packet contains: • 41-page handbook with teacher pages • A ten-page PowerPoint on the NGSS scientific method • A 20-page PowerPoint on "The Science of Color" • Plus, various links to other research sites

Physics Chatterbox/Cootie catcher: Circuit symbols

Physics Chatterbox/Cootie catcher: Circuit symbols

Looking for ways to spruce up your physics lessons? Try these chatterboxes! Most children have used these at some point in their lives and will love being able to make them within class. This chatterbox helps students to learn the key circuit symbols required for secondary school/high school. These are great to use at any point during the curriculum. I have used these with students aged between 11 and 18 and they have all loved them! Two files are included. One with colour and the other without depending on your needs. Either way I recommend allowing students to decorate their chatterboxes however they like to encourage personal learning.

Famous Architects Wordsearch Sheet Keywords KS3 Settler Starter Cover Lesson

Famous Architects Wordsearch Sheet Keywords KS3 Settler Starter Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of Famous Architects. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Facebook 'like' thumbs up

A page of facebook thumbs up 'like' buttons that can be printed and laminated. I use these during self and peer assessment both individual and group. Students are able to 'like' a piece of work, which initiates discussion.
