Igneous, Sedimentary and Metamorphic Rock Webquest

(2)
Great webquest, includes three full pages, one each for each of the three types of rocks. All links that are in the webquest work as of today and many have great interactives. Some of the interactives require Flash, so please plan accordingly when deciding what sort of device to have students complete the webquest on (items that play Adobe Flash are a must for a couple of the sites).

Layers of the Atmosphere Shrinky Dink (Shrink Plastic Not Included)

(0)
Students fill out a chart with information about the layers of the atmosphere, and then they are able to create their own "Shrinky Dink" using shrink plastic (plastic not included). They can either trace the diagram on the left side of the page, or they can draw it from scratch! After they draw it with colored pencils or fine point permanent marker, they can put it in the oven and watch it shrink! (I use a toaster oven in my classroom and do them one at a time, as the kids finish. They love watching them shrink! Shrink plastic best price I have found: School Specialty this Grafix brand: https://store.schoolspecialty.com/OA_HTML/ibeCCtpItmDspRte.jsp?minisite=10206&item=3185038 I cut the shrink plastic into 1/4's and it works out great!

Law of Conservation of Mass with LEGOS! (Lab Activity)

(0)
A great lab for demonstrating the law of conservation of matter. Students use Lego blocks (or you can substitute gummy bears or some other manipulative) to build chemical equations. Students take the mass of the parts of the equations and then see how the mass is unchanged in the reactants and products. This version has two versions: one with pre-filled colors, and the other with the colors left blank so you can adapt it to fit with the Legos you already have. The second part of the lab includes alka-seltzer, water and ziploc baggies. Students see how mass is unchanged in a closed system.
