A hands-on science activity that teaches students who are blind and visually impaired about the balance of objects.
In this activity, students will experience an endothermic reaction and gauge the temperature change that occurs as a result of the reaction.
Endothermic or Exothermic Reaction?
This activity focuses on ionic bonding and the importance of valence electrons in chemical bonding.
Modeling Ionic Bonding of Atoms with the AZER APH Model
This simple model and related activities help students who are blind or visually impaired understand how the central vacuole of a plant cell helps the plant cell to remain firm.
Central Vacuole of Plant Cell with Structural Support Model
This activity ties in both the structure and function theme prevalent in biology and provides an engaging introduction to organic molecules.
Life Molecules Using the Molymod Models
Each student will in turn describe a part of the cell for classmates who attempt to decide which organelle the student is "playing".
Cell Structure - Interactive Guessing Game
The volume of two identically shaped cubes is compared followed by a comparison of the masses of the same two cubes.
Intro to Volume and Mass
Prior to instruction on cell structure, this activity utilizes the stellar APH Life Science Tactile Graphics Set to compare animal and plant cell structure.
Cell Structure Intro Using the APH Life Science Tactile Graphics
This hands-on activity teaches students who are blind and visually impaired about problem solving and the engineering design process.
Ping Pong Pop Fly
A hands-on science lesson about gravity using toy cars.
This hands-on, participatory science activity teaches students who are blind and visually impaired about the effect of position and motion using toy race cars.
Position and Motion: Hot Wheels
A hands-on science lesson for students who are blind and visually impaired to demonstrate friction.
