Young scholars investigate the factors affecting population growth. In this biology instructional activity, students collect data from the lab and graph them. They estimate population size using a mathematical formula.
Students evaluate their school's human rights climate using criteria derived from the universal Declaration of Human Rights. They identify areas of particular concern and develop an action plan to begin addressing the issues.
Investigate the current financial market and have your class explore savings, borrowing, financial markets, mutual funds, and the stock market. This four-part lesson plan is designed to help students become knowledgeable and informed consumers.
Fourth graders research a person who made a difference in New York's history, they write short biographies, and then they become the person during The Living History Museum. They can choose a person from any timie period.
Learners explore the environmental concerns in the Latin American World. In this inquiry based lesson, students discuss, and question aspects of environmentalism, research, and propose solutions. They prepare a presentation and class discussion.
Students explore how human rights are different in each part of the world. In this freedome lesson plan, students define human rights, research how human rights in one country ultimately affect other countries, and share their findings through discussion, oral presentation and role playing.
Young scholars research two physical and/or human characteristic topics of the Northern Mariana Islands in groups of four students. In this social studies lesson, young scholars analyze how to write magazine articles and research the two topics of their choice. In addition, students create a "magazine" by binding the articles together, create a cover, and name the magazine.
Open this lesson with a discussion on birth defects. Break the class into groups to visit a website and learn about what happens at each stage of human embryo and fetal development. Assign each group a particular birth defect to research and create a slide show to present to the rest of the class. Note that in Step three of the lesson plan, the PowerPoint that you are supposed to show is not included. There are, however, a student worksheet and group presentation grading rubric.
Ninth graders explore how to use the Internet effectively to find information. In this research lesson students work in groups to research a given subject.
Students investigate estuarine research reserves. In this natural laboratories lesson plan, students explore the National Estuarine Research Reserve System and interpret data from the sites to study nutrients in estuaries. Students research these systems on line and answer 20 questions about their discoveries.
Students conduct research on a selected artist's life. They select an artist, conduct Internet research and bookmark sites, read biographical information about their artist, and create and print a chronological timeline of their selected artist's life.
Tenth graders investigate how to conduct research without writing a research paper. In this research lesson, 10th graders work in groups to research one topic. Students break down their topic into smaller subjects and each member chooses a creative way to present their findings through an oral presentation or visual aids.
Twelfth graders research cloning. They make PowerPoint presentations based on their discoveries.
Tenth graders conduct research and develop a research project on the Holocaust. They conduct Internet research, take notes, organize their information, and present an oral report to the class.
Young scholars analyze artist's themes and means of communication, think critically about their sources of information, and weigh claims of national security against the civil liberties of diverse groups.
Students examine the way habitats and human organ systems function. In groups, they role play the role of a government group assigned to determine if a settlement can make their home in a specific area. They must discover how humans and the environment might be effected if the area is settled.
Students analyze, synthesize, and summarize information from diverse resources. In this language arts and social studies lesson plan, students work collaboratively to explore a solution-oriented Web site focusing on education and poverty.
Does the human body evolve as quickly as human culture? With a stellar 15-minute video, explore the trait of lactose intolerance. Only about 1/3 of human adults seem to still have the enzyme lactase and therefore, the ability to digest lactose. Scientists look at the DNA and the history of two cultures that might explain why. Follow the video with one of the accompanying lab activities in which biochemistry learners measure glucose changes over time after adding lactose (milk) to simulated intestinal fluid samples (lactase solution). This is a thick and creamy lesson!
Young scientists discuss the results of carelessness during experimentation and the temptation to misrepresent findings. These activities are intended to develop the ability to identify scientific error, misconduct, and fraud. Use this resource at the beginning of a biology course to introduce learners to ethical considerations and to review laboratory techniques at the same time!
