Title of Presentation or Activity Description
8th Grade Lab Ideas  Here are some websites that offer many various labs for 8th graders. They are very broad as they cover a lot of different topic areas. 
A BALANCING ACT: Balancing Chemical Equations  This is a hands-on activity for students to learn how to correctly balance chemical equations. Individual students or groups will manipulate unbalanced chemical equations using color-coded note cards to visualize the step-by-step process of balancing chemical equations. 
A Stellar Cellular Ceiling  In this activity, students will be assigned a particular organelle to research. They will then use critical thinking and problem solving skills to come up with the best way to represent their organelle on a ceiling model of either a plant or animal cell and complete a report on their research. There is an accompanying worksheet that has the students compare organelles to important parts of a city emphasizing the function of each organelle in the cell.  
Acid Rain Experiments  Many experiments from the environmental protection agency. 
Active Atoms  This activity is designed to demonstrate and provide the students with an understanding of the parts of an atom. The students will be engaged in the activity by creating a moving model of an atom by either watching or participating in making the models.
