Bracket Madness! 9 to 12
(5.0 stars, 2 ratings)
Students will "compete" against each other by utilizing various forms of imagery to compliment their research-based presentations in an attempt to end up in the championship bracket. Although the original idea is for a "Most Courageous Person in History" presentation, it is a concept that is easily adapted to any classroom curriculum.
Breaking Color Barriers 3 to 5
(5.0 stars, 2 ratings)

Students will work in groups to explore the properties of sound and use that information to invent a functioning instrument.
Cameras and Shadows K to 8
(5.0 stars, 2 ratings)
Students will utilize photographs to capture shadow changes throughout the day. These changes will help to make predictions about how the shadows will change and why they change. They will use this information to then create and document a sun dial that tells time.
