Lesson Plan

## Determining Main Idea and Supporting Details - Wild in the City

Students use a graphic organizer to record important details and determine the main idea of a video segment. They use the organizer to write an informational paragraph about parakeets in the city.

4-7

Lesson Plan

## Determining Rates from Graphs

Students learn about and practice calculating rates (positive, negative and zero) using data from graphs.

Lesson Plan

## Do Materials Get Tired- Do Rubber Bands Get Longer During Use? (MS)

This lesson plan allows students to determine what happens to materials as they get tired. Will rubber bands slowly deform when a constant force or displacement is applied to them?

6-8

Lesson Plan

## Do Materials Get Tired? Do Rubber Bands Get Longer During Use? (HS)

This lesson plan investigates how materials slowly deform when constant force is applied to them. By testing the strain of weights on rubber bands, students will mimic engineers who measure the maximum stress a material can withstand before it fails.

9-12

Lesson Plan

## Do Materials Get Tired? How Long Will a Paperclip Last? (MS)

This lesson plan investigates how materials fail or break under prolonged stress, using paperclips as an example. Engineers run careful experiments so that they can be sure that things will not break due to fatigue while you are using them.
