Title of Presentation or Activity Description
Creepy Critters  This presentation is a fun introduction to two creatures that are commonly misunderstood. When people learn and understand more about feared animals they can also learn to respect them and their habitats.  
Crystal Candies  In this activity, students make their own rock candy as a demonstration of crystals and supersaturated solutions. 
Cycles, Rocks, and Your Backyard!  These series of PowerPoints and activities provides an in-depth collection of rock cycle information and provides students a chance to discover a real cycle in their own backyard! 
Cycling of Matter  This presentation explains the cycling of matter and shows how the decomposition in a composting bin is an example of the cycling in a living system. 
Dam Building Activity  This activity is meant to be used with “The Jade Dragon” PEER Module. It allows students to evaluate four different locations for building a dam. The students must think critically about the advantages and disadvantages of each solution, and determine as a team which solution is best. The activity provides a perspective on how our decisions can have far-reaching implications; even implications we may have never foreseen.
