Forces Within A Star - Fe [26] Game

Resource:
Forces Within A Star - Fe [26] Game

Students will collect data using a game/simulation to better understand how nuclear fusion results in the release of energy and the formation of new elements, as well as why the lifespan of a high-mass star is much shorter than the lifespan of a low-mass star.

Gravity Investigation

Resource:
Gravity Investigation

This activity around the concept of gravity will support students in developing an understanding of the big ideas in the Life Cycle of a Star, Structure of the Solar System, and Orbital Motion of Celestial Objects 5E Plans. It also provides an option for having students begin to develop their capacity for constructing scientific explanations, a skill that is crucial for sensemaking throughout this course and in the realm of science.

Investigating Plate Boundaries

Resource:
Investigating Plate Boundaries

Students use an online simulation to explore different types of plate boundaries and landforms created at plate boundaries.

All Resources From:
Natural Selection Simulation

Resource:
Natural Selection Simulation

In this simulation from Phet Sim, students observe concepts behind natural selection, but in a sped-up time frame.

Seismic Waves and Earth's Interior Investigation

Resource:
Seismic Waves and Earth's Interior Investigation

Students work in groups to complete this reading guide as a tool for navigating a complex text.

All Resources From:
Star in a Box

Resource:
Star in a Box

Students make observations from online simulators in order to learn about the relationship between age and mass, mass of a new star and lifespan, and the stages of a star life cycles.

Unit 6 Exploring Mutations Animation

Resource:
Unit 6 Exploring Mutations Animation

In this activity, students use an online simulation to explore the different types of mutations and how mutations impact traits.

All Resources From:
Unit 6 Protein Synthesis Animation

Resource:
Unit 6 Protein Synthesis Animation

In this activity, students have the opportunity to generate observations about the process of protein synthesis, using an online simulation. Students clarify their understanding using text.

All Resources From:
Waves, Redshift, and Blueshift (Doppler Effect)

Resource:
Waves, Redshift, and Blueshift (Doppler Effect)

Students explore the evolution of the universe through simulator activities designed with the intention of making sure that all students have a deep understanding of basic wave concepts that is necessary in order to explain redshift and blueshift (Doppler effect).
