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.
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.
Looking for an introductory lesson on substance abuse? This lesson 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 lesson is worth taking a look at and adapting to fit the needs of your class.
Future energy engineers visit several stations, each one dedicated to a different alternative source of energy. They describe how solar energy is converted into other forms of energy, the patterns of distribution of energy resources in the United States, and how these patterns of distribution are represented through maps. This is a comprehensive and well-written lesson plan for your middle school science curriculum.
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.
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.
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.

They report on the dangers of alcohol consumption and present their reports in front of the class.
Preparing the root tip samples is the most challenging part of the mitosis-viewing lab found here, but the directions help ensure you have everything you need. There is no worksheet included; however, there is a sample data table. Budding biologists can copy the data table into their science notebooks, draw sketches of each observed stage of mitosis, then calculate the miotic index using the formula found in the teaching notes.
Tenth graders research the effects of drinking and driving on three individuals. For this drivers education lesson, 10th graders study the impact of alcohol on three different drivers and present the information learned from the articles to the class. A class discussion follows. Enrichment activities involving guest speakers are optional.
This set of slides goes through the different roles that the members of the family of an alcohol or chemical addict take on.
