Explore light waves, prisms, energy, and the electromagnetic spectrum with this kit’s materials and lesson plans! Students can study light by building spectroscopes, conducting experiments, learning about telescopes, and investigating the mathematics behind light and other kinds of electromagnetic energy.
This kit enables students to investigate different scientific topics associated with space travel and the International Space Station. Lessons explore microgravity, human nutrition, energy reflection and absorption, and the different behaviors of living organisms in outer space. The kit includes many interactive and engaging activities designed to enhance students’ knowledge of technology, physics, and life science.
MOR’s Rockets Kit introduces students to the physics of rockets and space travel. The kit and its lessons provide the guidance and materials for conducting hands-on experiments that demonstrate Newton’s Laws of Motion. Students can also learn about different types of rockets and their practical use in contemporary space travel. The kit includes experiments with stomp rockets, rocket cars, and balloon rockets, as well as opportunities for students to design and construct their own rockets.
What is the moon made of, and how was it formed? Why do we see different kinds of moons throughout the year? What is a crater, and why are craters different sizes? This kit’s lessons and materials help students investigate these questions with skits, experiments, books, images, and demonstrations. Also included in the kit is Blackfeet Skies: An Educational Guide Based on Blackfeet Sky Knowledge.
