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

Students will explore the foundational concepts of motion using multimedia presentations, interactive widgets, videos, and other informational science websites. Students will make measurements for distance and time, create graphs to visualize their motion, and compare the average speeds of objects. Students will graph changes in velocity versus time and interpret meaning from their graphs.

This unit planner shows key lessons in teaching concepts of genetics. Students discover how cellular information passes from one generation to another. They first explore why cells must divide as they grow larger. Tools to grasp vocabulary are provided. The work of Gregor Mendel is included and students get to practice using Punnett Squares and are introduced to dihybrid crosses.

This is a blueprint for a blended unit on matter for 4th grade. It incorporates f2f labs and discussion, reading of texts, and online resources such as video clips, review games in Socrative and Kahoot, and lots of use of Google apps. There are options for differentiation worked into the unit to use as needed. It is a work in progress and has not had a trial run yet.
