Sixth graders explore the food chain by researching bald eagle diets. In this animal poisons lesson, 6th graders identify the chemicals that fish eat which are later consumed by bald eagles. Students utilize colored paper and coloring utensils to conduct an aquatic plant demonstration.
In an ecology simulation, middle schoolers draw dots, representing chemicals, on green strips of paper, representing aquatic plants. After you hide the strips around the room, they pretend to be fish and collect plants as food. The total chemical dots are tabulated and transferred to orange strips, representing fish. Finally, after fish strips are hidden, students pretend to be eagles and collect fish as food. The total chemical dots are again tabulated and the effects of biomagnificaiton demonstrated. Extension and assessment activities are suggested within the plan.
Pupils are introduced to a variety of symbols representing the United States. As a class, they identify places in which they have seen the various symbols and discuss what they mean. To end the lesson plan, they state the words from the Pledge of Allegiance and view photographs of the bald eagle.
Students find the number of possible bald eagle territories on a map and estimate the total length of rivers and total circumference of bodies of water based a map scale. For this eagle country lesson, students complete a handout that incorporates their knowledge of biology, wildlife, and mathematics.
Students explore symbolism by viewing a slide-show of American monuments and images. In this American culture lesson, students view a PowerPoint presentation of images which represent the country, such as the flag, Bald Eagle and Statue of Liberty. Students discuss which symbols were most popular, and which were hard to identify.
