Students complete an activity that illustrates the concepts of giving accurate instructions and computer programming. They also identify the relationship of the instructions/code to computer programming. Students then create a peanut butter sandwich by writing an HTML web page and use programmable robots.
In this World Heart Day worksheet, learners complete activities including reading a passage, matching phrases, fill in the blanks, correct word choosing, multiple choice, sequencing, unscramble the sentences, write questions, take a survey, and writing. Students complete 12 activities for World Heart Day.
Second graders learn about how the food is broken down in our bodies and the job of each body part involved in our digestive system. The utilize the CD ROM game, "Body Works." This wonderful game takes pupils through the human body's digestive system where they "meet" all sorts of creatures. The class divides into groups, and each group helps a certain type of food get through the digestive system.
Life science learners investigate live cells. They examine wet mount slides of cyanobacteria and Elodea plants. They peer into the dynamic microscopic world of protists. Afterward, they construct a model of a cell, including rudimentary structures: cell membrane, nucleus, chloroplast, cell wall, mitochondria, vacuole, and possibly flagella or cilia. Bonus activities include causing plasmolysis in plant cell, and separating plant pigments via chromatography. This is an A+ resource!
This is not they typical set of teacher instructions. It is an organized chart of the important organic compounds. For each, the involved elements, the name of the building block monomers, the names of polymers, extra information, and a class demonstration is listed. Use this as a guide for preparing your lecture and demonstrations when introducing biology or biochemistry pupils to the biologically significant materials. You could even have your class do the demonstrations as a lab activity.
Are you dependable? An independent thinker? Do you work well with others? Prepare your pupils for the summer job quest with a richly detailed worksheet that not only leads them through the process of creating a resume, but also explains the importance of each step. The provided checklists offer suggestions for personal attributes, transferable skills, and relevant activities. Resume samples are included as well. A great resource for a career unit.
There will be no couch potatoes in your class when biologists experiment with potato enzyme activity. For this lab exercise, they will measure production by the amount of foam created. This resource has everything high schoolers need to carry out the investigation: an introduction and background, materials and procedures, pre-lab and conclusion questions. The only problem is that there are already results typed into the data table. Make sure to white them out before photocopying for your class.
Ms. Strohfeldt did not omit anything when she designed this comprehensive lesson plan on DNA mutation and sex-linked traits. Begin with a pretest as an anticipatory set. Read a case history of the Clark family and the occurrence of hemophilia in the family. Biologists perform a simulation of a gel electrophoresis for each member of the family and explore DNA sequences. You will find detailed teacher's notes, worksheets with answer keys, and resource links to help you teach this lesson.
A five-day plan spans conjunctions, reading comprehension, sequencing, paragraph wriitng, compare-and-contrast, context clues, and a wide array of other literacy skills. Content focuses on the human body, the digestive process, and man vs. machine themes using informational text and the 50-line Rudyard Kipling poem "The Secret of the Machines." The content covered is enough to guide a month of thoroughly-taught curriculum. It may be suitable for a science/language arts collaboration, or a G/T enrichment course in which learners integrate a wide range of skills and divergent content. Worth the time it would take to flesh it out.
“America herself is an improbable journey.” So is Deval Patrick’s journey from the South Side of Chicago to the governorship of Massachusetts. The complete text of Patrick’s inaugural speech, delivered outdoors facing Boston Common, offers learners an opportunity to examine, not only how the speech is crafted, but the vision Patrick shares with his audience as well.
Young botanists discover what plants need to grow by listening to a story about a sunflower. The story is embedded in the plan, along with an excellent blackline master that is used to guide seven small groups of learners through their activities as the story is being read to them. While there are many standards listed for language arts, the main focus of this lesson is on science.
If you have a Hoffman apparatus or some other hydrolysis equipment, you can carry out this plan with your high schoolers. Through it, chemistry stars discover how redox reactions can serve as a possible source of electrical energy. They diagram the fuel cell, write the equation for the reaction, and calculate its efficiency. As an extension, have learners research the current use of hydrogen fuel cells and share their discoveries with the class.
Explore The Tempest and how language and power are intertwined in the play. Through a series of questions (provided) and an intense activity that has groups translate Caliban's speech into American Sign Language, learners recognize similarities and differences between Caliban's language and ASL. An extension activity is also offered.
Students discover the types of batteries and their uses. They experience static electricity by rubbing glass jars and using it to raise their hair. After discussing the importance of recycling batteries and using ones that are rechargeable, they build homemade wet cells based on the Voltaic cell.
