Two fact-filled and easy-to-understand reading comprehensions, explaining and defining light. Our light units are available at four different levels, with increasingly advanced vocabulary and concepts.
Step-by-step building of a catapult from craft sticks; this unit presents the elements of a science project (research, hypothesis, etc.) that can be used for this catapult experiment and applied for other science projects in the future.
Build a pond project, part of our "Where we Find Science" series. This project offers opportunities to observe biology in a pond. Instructions for building a pond, plus explanation of possible results and a form for observations of changes in pond are included.
An explanation of Archimedes discovery of the formula to measure density of an object using water. Includes directions to conduct an experiment using the Archimedes' method, plus a report form. Part of abcteach's Where We Find Science; Science in Water Series.
A set of two experiments about static electricity, which includes directions, an experiment report form and an explanation of probably results. Part of abcteach's Where We Find Science - Science at Home series.
An advanced astronomy project in which student builds a device to measure the position of the sun in the sky and record its changes, to help understanding of seasons. Includes scientific method report form. Part of abcteach's Where We Find Science Series.
Reading comprehensions on the sun, incandescent light, light bulbs, electroluminescence, fluorescence, phosphorescence, bioluminescence, LEDs and LCDs... every type of light. A thoroughly informative unit!
A one page explanation of where we find science and an introduction to the abcteach series that looks at where we find science through sets of experiments. Includes vocabulary list and comprehension questions.
Two simple experiments help students understand the movement of the sun and its relationship to the seasons and the time of day. Includes observation, note taking, sketching, building a simple sundial and a scientific method report form. Part of abcteach's Where We Find Science Series.
