Learners analyze earth science by completing an educational worksheet in class. In this island geography lesson, students identify the different types of islands on Earth, how they are formed and the amount of islands found in Alaska. Learners define a list of vocabulary terms and complete a worksheet based upon island facts.
Young scholars are introduced to caribou and their migratory behavior. Students will learn some basic facts about caribou and map the migration route of the Porcupine caribou herd of Alaska and northwestern Canada. They will conclude by drawing pictures of scenes along this migration route and writing captions to describe their drawings.
Do The Research! America Buys Alaska
In this research and record information worksheet, students research the who, what, when, and where about America purchasing Alaska and write short answers. Students write 4 answers.
Alaska History: Oral Traditions
Students research American culture by reading a story in class. In this Alaskan heritage lesson, students read the book Red Cedar of Afognak and discuss the characters, settings and conflicts of the Alaskan story. Students complete a worksheet and create storyboards to identify the main points of the book.
United States Map
Students compare the United States on a globe and on a map. In this map activity, students relate the sizes of the continents and locate the United States. Students identify the location of the continental US as well as Alaska and Hawaii.
Iditarod Picture Dictionary
Young readers use a selection of informational texts to learn about Alaska and the Iditarod in this five-day language arts lesson from Scholastic. Learners begin by creating a class idea web as they read the provided texts. After reading the several informational texts included in this resource, learners are ready to display all their knowledge in a class vocabulary book. Small groups draw pictures of Iditarod terms and write captions explaining them.
How The Weather Effects Us
Students discover how weather affects their lives. They review the climates of Florida, Alaska and New York. They need choose the place they would most like to live in based on the climate of that state.
Working with Sinusoidal Models
For this sinusoidal model worksheet, students use the sinusoidal model to solve word problems about the hours of daylight in Anchorage, Alaska. Students complete 5 problems.
An Island Story
Learners explore world geography by completing a tsunami worksheet. In this Earth science lesson, students discuss the different layers in Earth and how they create earthquakes which spawn tsunamis. Learners examine a map of Alaska and answer study questions about islands nearby.
Mapping The Iditarod
Fourth graders watch a video about mapping distances and then calculate the distance their individual mushers travel each day. This occurs each Monday through Friday until each musher has crossed the finish line in Nome Alaska.
Students identify Alaskan culture by viewing an educational film.
