Science Snacks: Projects and Activities You Can Do! | Exploratorium

Science Snacks: Projects and Activities You Can Do! | Exploratorium | Science and fun | Scoop.it

The Exploratorium has taken some of their most popular exhibits and created "Snacks" - "miniature science exhibits that teachers could make using common, inexpensive, easily available materials."

Snacks come with "easy-to-follow sections that include instructions, advice, and helpful hint" and also includes an image of the project, an introducation, list of materials, assembly instructions and more.

Although written with high school teachers in mind, Snacks are now being used by elementary and middle school teachers as well as colleges, and by teachers of art, as well as math, shop and more. They have even made their way to community groups.

If you are looking for some science experiments to use in your classroom check out Science Snacks at the Exploratorium!

"One of my favorite units in the Earth Science curriculum is Rocks and Minerals. Students have a real opportunity to get their hands dirty while examining and identifying samples. In the past, the kids have carried clipboards with data tables around the room, checking out various rock and mineral samples, while trying to figure out what exactly they were looking at. At the end of the lesson, I was left with a list of sample names from each student, which I would count as evidence of their lab work. This just didn’t seem to cut it. So this year, I had students bring their iPads around with them. Their task was to, not only identify the samples, but create Keynote slides on each one, including a photo (which they took themselves), the main characteristics of the sample, and the name of the rock or mineral."

We try our best to start all of our technology integration discussions with our teachers right where they are...their learning goals. If we are true to our learning goals then we can let our technology resources provide opportunities to enhance the learning. The SAMR scale is ideal for discussing that effect.
