Title of Presentation or Activity Description
All about the Weather  Attached are 5 hands-on activities designed to teach 6th grade middle school students about the weather. They will investigate the relationship between temperature and air pressure, the nature of cloud formation, the involvement of precipitation and crystals in snowflakes, and the effect of air pressure on the weather using their own home-made barometers. The activities also include lab safety components and can be easily adjusted for 7th grade if needed. 
All-Star Basketball Slam Dunk  This fun and very interactive lesson plan will show your students the difference between planetary revolutions and rotations. It does this by using a basketball slam dunk contest to gain interest and enthusiasm on this usually confused topic. 
Alternative Energy  An introductory PowerPoint that explains different energy sources. 
Amazing Traits  Through this lesson and computer interactive games, students will be able to distinguish and understand concepts of genes, dominant and recessive traits, and the Punnett square. 
Amino Acids to Protein  This activity is designed to help students visualize how amino acids are strung together to create a protein and how the sequence affects the protein conformation. This activity demands the students to get involved because they pretend they are amino acids and have to form proteins.
