Learners investigate the greenhouse effect and examine the potential effects of climate change in the Arctic. They construct a mini-greenhouse and test its effect on temperature, analyze historical climate statistics, and conduct an experiment about the insulating properties of sea ice.
Extremely throrough and informative, this presentation details many aspects of European geography and demographics, including natural resources, climate, topography, and population distribution. This slideshow would be an excellent companion to a unit about Europe, either in relevant pieces or in its entirety. Bright maps and easy-to-read statistics make this presentation a real find for a social studies teacher.
A wonderful series of lessons on the ocean and ocean life. First graders should develop a respect for the ocean environments and all of the animals who live there. By engaging in hands-on and multi-sensory activities, learners will see the interdependence between the animals and their ecological community. There are terrific worksheets and clearly explained activities embedded in each of the plans. Highly recommended!
Students use materials found at a resource table to design simple devices that will house instruments to take water samples from a tub of water. They design 3 instruments, each varying in density so that one will float, one will hover and one will sink. The work in teams and each member contributes to the design. After experimentation, they share designs with the rest of class.
Learners construct a model of the hydrologic cycle, and observe that water is an element of a cycle in the natural environment. They explain how the hydrologic cycle works and why it is important, and compare the hydrologic cycle to other cycles found in nature. This is one of the most thoroughly thought-through, one-period lesson plans I've ever come across!
