Climate Change And Disease
Students consider the role of climate change in the occurrence of vector born diseases such as malaria. In small groups, they research a specific vector to complete an information chart on climate changes in the region where the vector exists, the impact of the change on its habitat and the potential impact on disease transmission.

A secondary purpose of this lesson is to provide students with the opportunity to carefully observe and work with an insect they normally find offensive.
6th - 10th Science
Young scholars identify and list the common soil types, including those they observed during the activity. Students apply the procedure for mathematically finding the amount of moisture in soil by heating a soil sample. Young scholars explain the method by which they determined the water percentage in each sample.
K - 12th Science
For this tree-ring dating worksheet, students use activity sheets to determine a tree's age and to observe changes in climate from the tree-rings. Students investigate how archaeologists use tree rings to date evidence and they answer 5 questions on a "The Stump " activity sheet and 6 questions on the "Be a Dendrochronologist" activity sheet.
5th - 8th Science
Rain and Rainbows
Students explore the weather system by analyzing water properties. In this precipitation lesson, students review weather related vocabulary terms and discuss how rainbows are created by light hitting droplets at the right time. Students conduct a rainbow experiment by utilizing an electric kettle, cotton balls, mirrors and other household objects.
