Title of Presentation or Activity Description
Catch a Cloud!  In this activity, students will explore the relationships between solar energy, water, and the weather by creating their own clouds. In doing so, students will better understand how weather is formed and regulated out of what may seem like “thin air.” 
Catch a Wave!!   This activity provides a quick and easy way to prove light travels in waves. Students will observe how light travels through filters placed at various angles and discuss how the observed effects of the filters can explain the theory that light travels in waves. 
Cell Bingo  This game helps to reinforce the various structures, functions, and process of cells, and would be effective to use in reviewing for a test. Students are given a "bingo" card that contains various parts, functions, and organization levels of the cell. The teacher reads a description of a cell or process and the students must find the correct answer on their score card. The student that obtains "bingo" first, is rewarded your reward of choice.

Cell Organization  An activity demonstrating how cell organization, structure, and function are like buildings, teams, and other things in our lives. It compares the similarities of cell structure and processes to our everyday lives.
