Earth Processes begins and ends with two important, related geological theories: continental drift and plate tectonics.

This unit helps students distinguish between the apparent motions of the Sun and Moon versus the actual motion of Earth.

Students explore Electrical Circuits with twelve hands-on activities and the Delta Science Reader. Once your class has mastered simple open and closed circuits, students progress to constructing parallel and series circuits

Students investigate key science topics with classroom-tested hands-on activities and nonfiction reading.

Students explore the unique relationship between electricity and magnetism and how it can be manipulated.

By constructing their own model streams, students are able to identify the natural landforms that form as a result of water erosion.

Archimedes (buoyancy, levers); Galileo (law of falling bodies, telescope); Edison (light bulb, phonograph); Matthew Henson (heat loss, nutritional requirements); Rachel Carson (intertidal zone, natural insect control); and Stephen Hawking (black holes, event horizon).

Students explore Finding the Moon with twelve hands-on activities and the Delta Science Reader.

Students explore the fundamentals of flight by assembling and experimenting with a hangar full of flying machines.

Students explore Food Chains and Webs through twelve hands-on activities and the Delta Science Reader. Every bite we take connects us to a complex network known as a food web.

Students explore Force and Motion with twelve hands-on activities and the Delta Science Reader. Students use a Delta Education tool, a push-pull meter, to measure force

Students explore From Seed to Plant with fourteen hands-on activities and the Delta Science Reader. They are introduced to ten different types of plants, and they turn your classroom green as they explore how plants grow.

Students culture mushrooms, yeast, and the fuzz from old food to determine the factors necessary for each to mature and reproduce.

Children and science go hand in hand. Questions are the language of childhood: How big? How many? How far? How do we learn? taps this natural curiosity.

Through cross-curricular activities that integrate the sciences, students learn where mariners sailed, the methods and tools they used to navigate, and common causes of shipwrecks.

Students learn the physical characteristics that distinguish insects from other organisms.

Students explore water, the most abundant substance on Earth, using many tools and techniques, so be prepared for splashes and spills.

In this module students progress from measuring in non-standard units to measuring with standard measuring tools and recording results.

Students learn about refraction and reflection as they experiment with light, mirrors, lenses and filters. Includes a 15-min. video.

Introduce the concepts of adhesion, cohesion, and surface tension as students experiment with different liquid drops.

Students discover the Law of Magnetic Attraction and much more about the principles that govern magnetic behavior and interaction.

Students investigate key science topics with classroom-tested hands-on activities and nonfiction reading.

Using standard measuring tools, students develop skills for measuring length, width, height, area, volume, and weight.

Students investigate key science topics with classroom-tested hands-on activities and nonfiction reading.

Students build and maintain aquariums that become, over several weeks, diverse underwater ecosystems.

Students investigate our watery planet with a graphic model that compares water to land, salt water to fresh water, oceans to seas, and the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean.
