Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
Students observes how drinking alcohol while pregnant affects the placenta with a simulation.
Health Problems Series-Alcohol
In this alcohol worksheet, students watch a video called "Peerless P's Music Video" and fill out 6 sections on this worksheet including characters, the setting, the events, how kids are pressured to drink, reasons why kids give in and strategies for saying no to alcohol.
Birth Defects: Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
Students identify the causes, characteristics, and the treatment or prevention of fetal alcohol syndrome. They prepare presentations on birth defects, and listen to a guest speaker discuss birth defects.
Students are encouraged to have a sense of the importance of being able to make wise choices. They discuss alcohol abuse and crime and safety. Students comprehend the nature and consequences of anti-social behaviour. They recognize that they have rights and to hold their own views.
Students identify non-alcoholic ways to entertain and/or have fun.
Students mix solutions of polyvinyl alcohol and borax. They predict what happen and record their observations. They prepare a T-chart comparing Jell-o to their mixture.
A Study of the Effects of Ethanol and Heavy Metal Chemicals on the Development of the Zebrafish Embryo
Students are exposed to the dangers of alcohol abuse through the study and experimentation of alcohol on zebrafish embryos. This exercise can be used to demonstrate the effects of ethanol, cadmium, and lead on embryological development.
Using a graduated cylinder and triple beam balance, middle schoolers measure the volume and mass of four different liquids. They use the values to compute densities. In a separate activity, they experiment with Cartesian divers and learn how pressure affects density.
Three steps are needed to extract DNA from learners' inner cheek cells. The procedure and reasons for each step are explained. As enzymes work on the cells, a series of questions are answered regarding the structure of the DNA molecule. As the third step is in process, questions about DNA replication are also addressed. Finally, the DNA strands are placed into tiny tubes and hung on necklaces for biologists to wear home! If you can obtain the tubes, this would be a unique and memorable enrichment.
Lessons from the Street: An Introduction to Drug Education
Looking for an introductory instructional activity on substance abuse? This instructional activity contains some very good information and an activity that will engage your learners. Anything that has a hands-on component usually grabs their attention. Have them examine, share, and discuss the myriad of substances that Americans abuse. The statistics are astounding and shocking! This instructional activity is worth taking a look at and adapting to fit the needs of your class.
Evidence of Photosynthesis
Hands on science is the way to go! Learners conduct a lab experiment to help them explain how plants make food through photosynthesis. They test for the presence of starch in leaves using iodine solution and identify the basic things plants need to produce food. Includes helpful teacher notes.
Chemists consider a situation in which an ethanol producer needs to determine how much to add to t-butanol to prevent freezing during transport. They work in the laboratory to obtain the freezing point depression constant for the t-butanol. They graph the temperature changes and answer questions on the provided lab sheet. This is an outstanding application of freezing point concepts to a real-life scenario.
Progressivism: Structured Notes
Notes are great for getting ready for an exam or for writing a well-informed paper. Learners can use these notes (in PowerPoint form) to study the Progressive Era. Slides provide bulleted information on Du Boise, muckrakers, progressive political reforms, industrial America and the 16th through 19th amendments.
Changes, Choices, and Lessons
The teen years are nothing but a series of personal, social, and academic changes. Help kids understand what to expect as they mature and give them ways to make good decisions. After discussing they types of changes they'll go through, they assess several scenarios to practice making wise choices in tough situations.
Calibrating a Thermometer
Students calibrate an alcohol thermometer using the boiling and freezing point of water. In this physical science lesson, students explain what happens to boiling point of water as altitude increases. They calculate their experimental error.
Refrain From Alcohol
Sixth graders visit several websites in order to view what the effects of alcohol are on the human body. After viewing the websites individually, they form small groups in order to discuss and brainstorm what they have learned. They report on the dangers of alcohol consumption and present their reports in front of the class.
Eighth graders use the Internet to conduct research about alcohol addiction. They come up with 5-7 behavioral changes that occur when an individual is an alcoholic. They conduct research in groups and then present their findings.
Health Problems: Alcohol Flowchart
In this alcohol abuse worksheet, students create a flowchart to show the path that alcohol takes in the body, then write 5 negative and dangerous things that might happen if someone consumes too much alcohol.
Immigration and Prohibition
A comprehensive look at the prohibition debate through the lens of immigration gives scholars intriguing material for a debate and essay of their own. They watch four video clips (find these on the PBS website), discussing issues in small groups after each one. The viewing guide offers excellent prompts to get scholars critically thinking instead of just retaining. Use the debrief questions to facilitate a whole-group analysis, too. Next, groups discuss differing positions of various demographics. They are then assigned roles and given actual legislation to read and debate from various viewpoints. They vote to pass or veto each of the four bills. Finally, individuals write essays based on a given essential question relating anti-immigrant sentiment to prohibition enactment.
Journalism: Underage Drinking
Students research underage drinking and read a report in the Journal of the American Medical Association about the issue. They interview experts on substance abuse and liquor store owners about their policies. Students publish their reports in the school media outlets.
