Monthly Activities
    Difficulty: 3 NGSS

    In this activity, students will assess solar power by comparing its effect on rain (water), sleet (ice), and snow (popsicles). Students will observe the temperature changes on these elements and compare the temperature of the elements in direct sunlight with the same elements out of sunlight.

  • Through The Looking Glass

    In this activity, students will learn about the stars, planets, and Moon found in our solar system and how they relate to one another. Students will work in groups to create models of the Solar System.

  • Visibility of Light
    Difficulty: 1 NGSS

    In this activity, students will learn about the nature of light, make predictions about and assess its ability to pass through various substances. Students will learn that the material of the object in the light's path will determine the light's ability to pass through it.
