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).

Physical Science

Students will learn how sound travels through different materials. They will be involved in activities to explore how they can create sounds using different materials. They will be involved in activities to experience pitch and volume and how you can create different pitch and volume using different materials. They will design an instrument using recycled materials.

Grade: 

Students will learn about the physical, observable properties of matter. They will describe objects based on their properties. They will observe changes in matter, learn about the different states of matter and create a animated model that explains the states of matter.

Here is a digestive system assessment we use for fifth grade created on wizer.me

There is a practice quiz using quizzez as well.  

Resource Type:

Grade: 

A unit that will develop a model for constant velocity using verbal, graphical, and quantitative representations.  It begins with a paradigm lab using a constant speed toy cars (or any other similar device).

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
Grade: 

Blended unit outline for 3rd grade science teaching sound. In this unit students will learn about the components of sound and gain an understanding of how sound travels and how it is created. Students will used several different Web 2.0 tools to demonstrate their learning and to gather information.

Grade: 

A complete model for describing 1-D accelerated motion (descriptive, motion maps, graphs and kinematic equations).  Begins with a paradigm lab of motion on an incline.  The lab utilizes Vernier Logger Pro motion detectors the way I implement it, but can be done with other methods of data collection.

Grade: 

Using third grade Michigan Science Standards of Force and Motion, students will learn about force and motion, then design, describe, and create an arcade game for others to play.  Since this is a PBL, many ELA content standards are also included.
