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).

Earth and Space Science

Students are given a cross-section of a proposed cranberry farm site. They must use the scenario/information given to determine whether the site is good for the farm. Students will use many groundwater concepts as they work though the lab questions.

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
Grade: 

Using a cross section of Hogback Ridge along with a water scenario students will answer questions to gain an understanding of how water will flow in the ground. They also will learn how different types of rock and sediment will affect the rate water moves and flows in the ground.

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
Grade: 

Students will be using information on water quality to understand what it is. Then they will plot and use water quality data, taken at various locations along a river, to gain an understanding of what can affect water quality in a river.

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
Grade: 

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 list of facts about lunar rocks and their previous knowledge about rocks and minerals to decide if a sample they are given is a moon rock or not. They must come up with a claim, evidence that backs the claim, and then defend the claim to the class.

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.
