Teaching Physical Science for Student Learning: Density Activities from OP2
Engage in hands-on activities from our ODHE grant-sponsored course, “OP2: Operation Physics for Middle Grades Teachers.” We will model ways to teach the difficult concept of density in physical science through active learning that elicits, challenges, and resolves student ideas.

Force and Motion: Deeper and Cheaper
This session uses a research-based learning progression to teach force and motion using cheap and familiar materials. Learn to “teach the laws for less” and leave with effective and captivating activities, interactive demos, design projects and assessment activities that develop deeper understanding using Claims, Evidence, Reasoning and Rebuttal for sense making. These activities, aligned with the NGSS scientific and engineering practices, are drawn from Kent State University’s Operation Physics, a program for in-servicing teachers Grades (4-9).
