B1 Water cycle (teacher instructions)

Experimentation instructions for Experimento | 10+:
Background information on the content and practical information on conducting the experiment "Water cycle - Evaporation from plant leaves".


This very simple experiment is ideally suited as an introduction to various topics. For example, it can be used in geography class to study the water cycle and the climate, and in biology class, to study water as the basis of life and its importance in plant metabolism. This experiment can even be used in physics and chemistry to present the states of matter using a real-world example. The materials and apparatus supplied allow eight groups of students to conduct the experiments simultaneously.

Notes:
· Observe the safety information in the instructions as well as the applicable safety guidelines for your school.
· All materials mentioned in the instructions will have to be purchased directly from commercial sources.

Hydrogen as a future energy store

Project idea:
Project ideas on the topic of "Hydrogen as a future energy store".


Collection of ideas for a large number of project topics involving hydrogen as a future energy source and energy store. Students can work on the individual topics on their own or in groups.

Information and ideas:
"Water in power generation" can be used to provide ideas for additional project topics.

General equation of photosynthesis

Interactive graphic:The light and dark reaction of photosynthesis and the resulting general equation can be drawn up interactively in the form of a table.There are two different ways that the interactive table with the partial equations and redox reaction can be filled in:• all cells at once • each cell individually

Is the greenhouse effect caused by people?

%nformation module:Without the natural greenhouse effect, there would be no life on earth. But the greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane are reinforcing the effect in a way that is harmful.The aim is for students to recognize that life on earth as we know it would not be possible without the greenhouse effect. Three scenarios are presented for this: the earth without the greenhouse, the natural greenhouse effect and the anthropogenically enhanced greenhouse effect. The module shows how the complete lack of a greenhouse effect would affect the earth, how the natural greenhouse effect works and why there is an additional, undesired anthropogenically enhanced greenhouse effect. In the case of the anthropogenically enhanced greenhouse effect, an animation shows where the rise in greenhouse gases comes from and how this affects the average temperature on the earth's surface through increased counter-radiation. For the individual greenhouse gases, information can be accessed interactively on the wavelength range within which the thermal radiation is scattered back to the earth.Information and ideas:For the direct reflection of the incoming radiation, an albedo (reflection capacity of diffusely reflecting surfaces such as ice and snow) of approx. 0.30 is assumed with and without atmosphere, since the earth is not an ideal black-body radiator.The anthropogenically enhanced greenhouse effect and changes in solar activity are the main causes of climate change! Scientists have agreed that both effects influence the earth's climate. What has not yet finally been determined is the percentage effect of each factor on the changes in the climate of the earth. In terms of specialist teaching, this subject involves some complex physics. One of the most difficult questions is the matter of radiation balance: Why does it get warm on earth although almost 100% of the earth's energy is radiated away%

B1 Water cycle (worksheet 1)

Worksheet for subject teaching in English:
For the student experimentation instructions of the same name. Methodology tool: sentence patterns developed by Josef Leisen and Heinz Klippert.


Note: This worksheet has been developed especially for subject teaching in English and for language-sensitive subject teaching. It uses the sentence patterns methodology tool developed by Josef Leisen and Heinz Klippert. Sentence patterns are especially suited for slow learners because the students are strongly steered by the guidelines of the individual parts of the sentence. The students can use them to practice using technical terms correctly.
Students whose native language is not English and who do not have strong English skills receive support and training in understanding the technical vocabulary. They work with the specialized vocabulary and in this way acquire the ability to communicate about specific subjects.

Hydroelectric plants

Information module:An overview of the individual types of hydroelectric plants and how they work.Hydroelectric plants convert water’s mechanical energy to electric energy. Different designs are used, depending on the natural conditions and form of energy to be used. The information module first provides a brief explanation of the plant types that primarily use the kinetic energy of water.• Run-of-river power plant (principle shown with animation)• Tidal power plant (principle shown with animation)• Wave power plant (principle shown with animation)Next come the types of plants that use the potential energy of water:• Storage power plant (principle shown with graphics)• Pumped storage plant (principle shown with animation).Information and ideas:What do the locations of the different hydroelectric power plants have to do with geography? What would be a good place to build more hydroelectric plants? What is the share of hydropower in the power mix?
