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).

Science

This is a blended learning unit for the 2nd Grade Plant Life Cycle Unit. This unit blends the use of technology through Google Classroom with hands on science in the classroom. 

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
Grade: 

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: 

With H5P, authors may create and edit interactive videos, presentations, games and more. Content may be imported and exported. All that is needed to view or edit H5P content is a web browser. 

Unit Summary: Simple machines are devices with few or no moving parts that make work easier. Students are introduced to the six types of simple machines — the wedge, wheel and axle, lever, inclined plane, screw, and pulley — in the context of the construction of a pyramid, gaining high-level insights into tools that have been used since ancient times and are still in use today.

Grade: 

In this unit, students will learn about how energy is transferred during a car accident. The students will then have to design a vehicle restraint system to protect a  “passenger” in a collision. Students will need to research existing restraint systems. Students will need to design a restraint system of their own in small groups.

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
Grade: 

Students will learn what it means to be autonomous and how to program robots to move on their own. They will learn the importance of giving specific, exact directions in a computer program to make the robot do what they want and go where they want. They will program the robots to complete increasingly difficult tasks, culminating in a robotics team competition.

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
Grade: 

Students begin the unit learning about what robots are and how humans use robots to avoid dull, dirty, or dangerous work. Students will complete several tasks that require them to design a solution to a problem while following the given criteria and constraints, while also learning about inputs and outputs on a robot.

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
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.

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
Grade: 

This unit will focus on weather.  Students will explore what weather is, how weather is measured and how weather impacts living things.
