Project Pages from THE LEVERING SCIENCE MAGNET SCHOOL
http://www.levering.k12.pa.us/
Web presentations of science and related projects (math, architecture, time, measurement...) for primary and middleschool grades, and special subjects (music, libraries, Web research), have been developed by teachers at Philadelphia's Levering School in cooperation with the Franklin Institute Science Museum.
The pages include lesson plans, journals, pictures, movies, and results, as well as standards addressed and links to related Web sites.
Examples of math used in projects include measuring and calculating (making working kites; finding the circumference of an orange, weighing the orange with and without the peel, then finding the edible percentage of the orange); probability in math (dietossing and other puzzles) and music (Mozart's Musical Dice); logic (toothpick puzzles, Geoboard Rectangles); and many more.
