Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Lab

Students will experiment with Schroenbein Paper and relative humidity to monitor ozone levels. Then explain their results to the class.

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
Grade: 

Students will learn about the difference between relative and absolute dating. They will collect, graph and interpret data during the activity to understand what half-life is and how it is used to date materials.

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
Grade: 

Students will be using a map of the rivers of the United States and Michigan to understand where the major river systems and watersheds are in our country.

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
Grade: 

Students will be working through an activity that will deepen their knowledge on the electromagnetic spectrum. They will be researching the various types of electromagnetic radiation and answering questions about them.

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
Grade: 

Students will be sorting pictures of galaxies taken from the Hubble telescope with the purpose of understanding how astronomers/scientists must organize and sort data to find patterns. Students will identify the various types of galaxies during this activity.

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
Grade: 

Students will use an activity/worksheet in order to understand the various distance measurements we use in space.

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
Grade: 

The students will be using a sky simulation to understand how constellations move through Earth's sky during the night/year.

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
Grade: 

The students will use a simulation from a website that allows for the manipulation of the Sun's position by adjusting the location on earth and time/date.

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
Grade: 

Students will use multiple graphs and data dealing with evidence from sun spot cycles, tree rings, and volcanic eruptions to gain an understanding of what factors can change our climate. The lab is broken into three parts that could be completed individually or all at once with a forth part as the conclusion.

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
Grade: 

The students will be using a website simulation that deals with light spectra. They can manipulate the simulation to see differences in wavelengths, temperature, color, and peak intensity. Another part of the lab deals with using spectra glasses with various light sources to see the spectral lines that are given off.
