In this age of information overload, it is often difficult for young people to know what they think about a topic. The graphic organizer, video, and activities included with this resource show middle schoolers how to use proven facts to formulate a personal point of view.
In this geography learning exercise, students identify the feral cats of Australia. They read an excerpt and respond to the three questions that follow. Students also imagine that they are a part of scientific team that has been set up to deal with Australia's huge feral cat problem. They develop a five-point plan to keep them safe.
Learners investigate how people view cats and some of the myths that have surrounded them in history. They are taught how to be compassionate towards animals and take a cat quiz to assess prior knowledge of felines. Students discuss how cats have been stuck with many stereotypes.
Young scholars discuss which animal makes a better pet. In this statistics instructional activity, students examine the factors that cause people to choose one animal over the other (cat or dog). Young scholars discuss their own opinions, and then view a video about why both animals are the top pet choices. Then students work in small groups to examine the characteristics of both animals, and then once again discuss their personal opinions as to which pet is better.
Students investigate the lives of pets by videotaping them. In this animal life lesson, students videotape a cat and other pets using school cameras in a computer lab. Students review the footage from the cat and other animals and discuss what makes a cat unique from every other domesticated animal.
Build good reading skills with a quick information learning exercise. Learners read the short paragraph about feral cats in Australia and then write down the names of six Australian animals a feral cat could not kill.

What happens when two cats collide? It depends on whether they exhibit codominance or incomplete dominance! Genetics learners are briefly introduced to the these two concepts and are given a scenario to solve. This handout can be used in your biology lesson as you are introducing dominance that differs from Mendel's original observations.
Quite often, learners confuse the main idea in a selection of reading with the supporting details. In this lesson, pupils practice the skill of finding the main idea and the supporting details in pieces of writing. Newspaper articles from the local paper are used to provide this practice. Classified ads are also good sources to quickly find the main idea, and the supporting details of what's being advertised.
