 Scale Models This lesson, presented by the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network, covers the general concept of scale by demonstrating factors of ten. The activity "facilitates the introduction and reinforcement of the metric scale and paves the way to the discussion of lengths that are smaller than what can be seen with the naked eye." The lesson also introduces the idea of using different tools to... http://www.nnin.org/education-training/k-12-teachers/nanotec...
 Noodling Around This lesson, presented by the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network, covers the general concepts of measurement by using a pool noodle to measure objects. The activity "encourages students to consider features that are useful when developing or using a measurement tool." The lesson introduces scale by considering factors of ten which will aid in future lessons about the metric system and... http://www.nnin.org/education-training/k-12-teachers/nanotec...
 Bigger is not always better This lesson, presented by the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network, covers size, scale, and measurement. In the first part of the activity, students will view the classic Power of 10 video before measuring various objects in the classroom. In the second part, size effects in chemical reactions are observed. Two Teacher Preparation Guides, two Student Guides, and Next Generation S... http://www.nnin.org/education-training/k-12-teachers/nanotec...
 Big vs. Little – Micro to Nano This lesson, presented by the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network, covers the general concepts of size and scale by discussing the micro and nano worlds. Children will "explore the concept of size by comparing and categorizing objects, then constructing various sized structures." This lesson lays a foundation for students to understand nanoscale in later grades. Five Teacher... http://www.nnin.org/education-training/k-12-teachers/nanotec...
 Shrink Me This lesson, presented by the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network, covers the general concepts of size and scale by focusing on measuring length. Students will learn about different scales of measure which is fundamental to learning about nanotechnology. After all, "helping students understand these ?worlds? is an important part of their science knowledge and will help them to und... http://www.nnin.org/education-training/k-12-teachers/nanotec...
