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
middle-school 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 (die-tossing and other puzzles) and
music (Mozart's Musical Dice); logic (toothpick puzzles,
Geoboard Rectangles); and many more.
