Serving Nanoscale Science, Engineering & Technology
Subject: General Science
Audience: Elementary, Middle School
This lesson provides students an opportunity to learn how microscopes and lenses make small objects in our world visible.
This lesson is designed to be part of a learning progression which lays the foundation on how tools and instruments are used in science and engineering
The purpose of this lesson is to encourage students to think about the size of objects through the use of literature and mathematics.
Using the book, Spaghetti and Meatballs for All! by Marilyn Burns students explore surface area and volume by using their knowledge of area, perimeter, and volume. This lays an early foundation for important nanoscale concepts.
Audience: Elementary, Middle School, High School
