Title of Presentation or Activity Description
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.  
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. 
Adaptation Island  A board game to review the basics of genetics, natural selection & reproduction. 
Adaptations  Plants and animals adapt to their environment in order to survive. They might adapt to avoid predators or to be a more efficient predator. Or they might adapt to survive their environment. Through the PowerPoint and the adaptation creation activity, students will learn how different and even similar animals and plants survive in different biomes. 

The PEER Program is composed of three grants entitled "GK-12 Fellows Integrate Science/Math in Rural Middle Schools", "Integrating Environmental Health Science in Rural Schools," and a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) entitled "Science Promotion in Rural Middle Schools".

Major funding for the PEER Program is provided by John Deere,
National Science Foundation, the
National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences
and the Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
