Convertible Shoes: Function, Fashion and Design
Students teams design and build shoe prototypes that convert between high heels and athletic shoes. They apply their knowledge about the mechanics of walking and running as well as shoe design (as learned in the associated lesson) to design a multifunctional shoe that is both fashionable and functional.
This lesson introduces the concept of electricity by asking students to imagine what their life would be like without electricity. Two main forms of electricity, static and current, are introduced. Students learn that electrons can move between atoms, leaving atoms in a charged state.
Ramp and Review
In this hands-on activity — rolling a ball down an incline and having it collide into a cup — the concepts of mechanical energy, work and power, momentum, and friction are all demonstrated. During the activity, students take measurements and use equations that describe these energy of motion concepts to calculate unknown variables, and review the relationships between these concepts.
What Do Bread and Beer Have in Common?
Students are presented with information that will allow them to recognize that yeasts are unicellular organisms that are useful to humans. In fact, their usefulness is derived from the contrast between the way yeast cells and human cells respire. Specifically, while animal cells derive energy from the combination of oxygen and glucose and produce water and carbon dioxide as by-products, yeasts respire without oxygen. Instead, yeasts break glucose down and produce alcohol and carbon dioxide as th
Backyard Weather Station
Students use their senses to describe what the weather is doing and predict what it might do next. After gaining a basic understanding of weather patterns, students act as state park engineers and design/build “backyard weather stations” to gather data to make actual weather forecasts.
Understanding, Questioning, and Representing Mathematics: What Makes a Difference in Middle School C
Understanding the nexus of theorized Teaching Quality Measures (TQMs) and classroom enactments of learning goals is important. Video and student performance data for a two-year period were examined for two sixth grade mathematics teachers. Due to their importance in contributing to the development of mathematical conceptual understanding, the TQMs coded in the videos were probing for student understanding, encouraging curiosity and questioning, and using accurate representational forms. For each
Pi Day : Making a Pi Necklace
Diana Funke teaches mathematics at Davisville Middle School in North Kingstown, RI. Her students make a Pi necklace for Pi Day to reinforce the idea that some numbers never repeat or end. They assign a color to each digit (including 0) and then string beads of those colors into a necklace, using the digits of Pi as their guide.

Mariachi Véritas de Harvard
Created in 2001, Mariachi Véritas de Harvard is a student-run group that focuses exclusively on the mariachi musical tradition. While many members have strong backgrounds in jazz and classical music, most have had little or no prior exposure to this Mexican musical form. They rely largely on learning techniques from each generation of members, and on YouTube videos of the mariachi style.

Great Pond Snail Eggs on Underneath of Lily Pad
This short video gives excellent real life, close up footage of Great Pond Snail eggs on the underneath of a lily pad. The aptly named great pond snail (Lymnaea stagnalis) is the largest pond snail in Britain. The great pond snail has a shiny yellowish brown shell, with a tall, slender and pointed spire. The great pond snail's body is yellowish grey in color, with a large head and long, flattened tentacles. This is a great resource to help build background knowledge and to he
