Beluga Whales in the Ice
Students think about how beluga whales survive in icy Arctic and subarctic waters and why they sometimes need to migrate. Students will view and sketch photographs of ice at different stages of thickness, look at pictures of belugas, and discuss how belugas' bodies are adapted to life in the ice.
Ice Water: Rivers and Permafrost
Students determine the impact of permafrost to the surrounding ecology. In this thermal erosion lesson, students examine the tributaries, communities and permafrost regions of the Yukon River. They evaluate the impact to the salmon survival rate.
Climate Change in Canada
In this Canada learning exercise, students read a 6 page detailed informational text about climate change in Canada. Students then complete 10 essay/short answer questions.
Walking on Thin Ice
Students examine scientific evidence of changes in the Arctic ice cover. They participate in a simulation of an international conference and debate the relationship between global warming and changes in the arctic ice cover.
Canada: A Land Rich in Beauty and Culture
Third graders in groups research the different regions of Canada. They create a timeline to put the major events of Canada's history in order.
Under the Deep Blue Sea
Students investigate oceans and ocean life. They analyze maps, listen to stories and poems, create a cut-away ocean display, write an ocean haiku, explore various websites, and role-play oceanographers.
The Shaping of the Arctic
Students explore the formation of Arctic landscapes using an interactive website. In this earth science lesson, students create models of at least 3 landscape features using a sculpting clay. They share the models with the class.
The Southern Ocean
It this reading for comprehension worksheet, students read an informational article about the Southern Ocean and answer questions about it. Students answer 10 true and false questions.
I Robot, Can Do That
Students examine how underwater robots can be used to assist scientific explorations. They read and discuss an article, conduct Internet research, complete a worksheet, and present an oral report.
Students take a provided ocean Trivia Quiz in order to start a discussion of the ocean. They then perform an experiment on how the amount of salt in the ocean affects it and varies from ocean to ocean.
I, Robot, Can Do That!
Assign groups of middle school oceanographers to research one of the following underwater robots; ABE, Herculues, ROPOS, RCV-150, Tiburon, or general purpose ROVs. An included handout guides them through information to be gathered. Each group then presents their assigned robot to the rest of the class. Facts about each are included for your convenience, as well as extensive background information, resource links, and suggestions for a homework assignment.
For this specific heat worksheet, students are given examples to find the specific heats of substances and to use the specific heats to find the changes in temperatures of substances. Students solve eighteen problems using what they learned about specific heat.
Get- To Know Mammals
Learners take a field trip and record information about mammals. In this mammals lesson plan, students hunt for tracks, waste, or other evidence that a mammal exists in this habitat. Learners complete a worksheet on the evidence they have found.
Biomes: Land of the Inuit
Students study Inuit and their ancestors. In this biomes lesson students study the relationship between the Inuit and their environment and create a class art gallery.
Name The Continents
Second graders learn how to locate geographical features on a map or globe. In this geography lesson, 2nd graders locate and identify the continents and oceans. Students complete a worksheet where they answer questions on the equator, the continents, the oceans, and map directions.

Students complete a unit on the oceans of the world. They explore various websites, compare/contrast ocean mammals and fish, identify coral reefs on a map, label the oceans on a world map, define ocean conservation vocabulary, and list ways the oceans help us.
Young scholars explore through experimentation molecular biology techniques that scientists use to explore Earth's deep oceans.
Colligative properties of Solution
Students identify the boiling point elevation. In this investigative lesson students differentiate between different properties in a solution.
Ocean Planet: Sea Secrets
Students identify ocean features and draw a profile using data points on a map. Through discussion and research, they discover the importance of oceanography and plot a profile of the ocean floor in search for a vessel full of precious metals. After completing worksheets, they construct ocean models using small aquariums, sand, and water.
