#### Newton's Laws of Motion - A Lock Box Escape Quest (no math) for STEM Day

(0)
After your initial preparation, the beauty of this activity is that it is entirely student-driven! They will know whether they got the correct answer to the clue because there is a self-correcting code to crack. Everyone participates, because when one group finishes before the others, the rules of the quest include the instruction to split up and help another group finish. The instructions below are for 6 groups of students. If you have fewer groups, follow the directions in parentheses. Materials needed: Construction paper: Yellow, Red, and Blue 18 business-size envelopes (15 for 5 groups, 12 for 4 groups) 3 small boxes (shoe boxes are perfect) Copy paper 3 markers Adhesive tape Assorted prizes Preparation: 1. Print three lock images. It’s okay if you don’t have a color printer – simply print in black and white and attach to the colored construction paper. 2. Designate each box as Newton’s First Law (blue), Second Law (yellow), and Third Law (red). Attach the prepared lock images to each box. 3. Cut eighteen 3” x 5” rectangles from the yellow, red, and blue construction paper. Attach to the envelopes: 6 yellow, 6 red, and 6 blue. (15 for 5 groups, 12 for 4 groups) 4. Print the Clue Sheet for each combination. Insert it in the designated color envelope. 5. Before the students enter the room, hide the envelopes. 6. Show the PowerPoint. 7. At the BEGIN slide, let the students search for the envelopes. Remind them that only one person from a group may be up and searching. Each time they look for an envelope, a different group member searches for a different color. 8. When the students get their combination number, one person will enter it on the box locks. This activity has self-correcting answers! If they don’t get a number as an answer, they will know that it is incorrect! If you have fewer than six groups, simply place a random number in the spaces you don’t use. 9. When one group finishes with three different color envelopes, they are to split up and help other groups. 10. When all the groups have finished, go over all the examples for each of Newton’s Laws of Motion. Either let the students present their findings, or you can show the finished products to the class, elaborating on each. 11. Show the reward slides on the PowerPoint. Some examples of rewards include homework passes, extra points on tests, dollar store goodies, stickers, etc. 12. When the activity is over, post the examples of each law next to the locks so everyone can see each other’s examples every day for a while!   NOTE: This activity is an introduction to Newton's Laws to present the concept - it does not contain the math associated with each law.

#### Rainbow Ranger PowerPoint - learn all about rainbows

(0)
Many rainbows children find on the Internet are incorrect - they are portrayed in the wrong order, backwards, or with non-rainbow colors like pink. The Rainbow Ranger in this PowerPoint WebQuest will teach very young learners the correct order of rainbow colors as they learn to use the computer to access information and solve puzzles. Additionally, your students will learn how to spell the colors of the rainbow and they will learn a song that will help them remember the order of colors. This activity is perfect for a March theme on rainbows. Add it to a literacy unit that uses Rainbow Fish to add character education to your science unit. Note: Make sure you play the PowerPoint, rather than simply look at the single slides. You'll see that some pictures and paragraphs disappear on a single slide before the next picture or paragraph appear on the same slide. I did this to create interest!
