Giant Jellyfish Invasion
In this reading comprehension skills worksheet, students read a 1 page selection entitled "Giant Jellyfish Invasion" and then respond to 5 multiple choice questions.
Students try to draw and identify a jellyfish from a physical description. After reading an article, they discover new information about cnidarians. In groups, they research and develop dioramas about a specific cnidarian species. They reflect on the evolutionary nature of science.
In this jellyfish picture worksheet, students view and discuss a picture of a jellyfish and color the picture with vibrant colors for illustration.
In this jellyfish vocabulary skills worksheet, students match the 10 listed jellyfish-related words to the appropriate sentences that describe each of them.
In this subtraction equations worksheet, students solve 8 problems in which 3 numbers inside a jellyfish shape are arranged to make a subtraction equation. Students solve and check by adding.
Tye Dye Jellyfish
Students investigate Ocean life by participating in an arts and crafts project. In this oceanography instructional activity, students discuss sea creatures, specifically jellyfish. Students are given coffee filters, markers, wax paper and wiggle eyes to create their own version of a jellyfish.
In this jellyfish activity worksheet, students respond to 10 multiple choice questions that require them to exhibit the knowledge they have regarding jellyfish.
In this jellyfish worksheet, students read one paragraph about jellyfish and then complete fill in the blank sentences about what they read. Students complete 4 sentences.
In this jellyfish worksheet, learners read 10 clues that pertain to jellyfish. Students find the word in the word bank that best fits each clue and complete a crossword puzzle.
Why does a seastar sink, but a jellyfish float? Through a fun investigation, learners examine the concept of buoyancy using simple household items. The challenge: create neutral buoyancy for an action figure in water. With ample teacher background and an easy-to-follow lesson plan, you won't have to worry about whether you'll sink or swim teaching the activity found here.
Is That A Yummy Jellyfish I See?
Fourth graders make a distinction between plastic waste food and natural wallots.
The Great Plankton Race
Students construct plankton models from materials of various shapes and densities to simulate adaptations that slow sinking. They race their models and calculate sinking rates. They discuss the importance of these small sea creatures.
In this cnidarians worksheet students study the biology of the different species of cnidarians and complete a series of short answers to the questions about them.
Students examine invertebrates. In this animal classification lesson, students discuss invertebrates and bilateral symmetry. They discuss the importance of horse shoe crabs in medical science.
Plankton in the Air
Here is a lab activity adequate for use with any full lesson on environmental factors that shape animal adaptations or marine animal characteristics. Pupils will discuss the role plankton plays in the environment and filter-feeding animals. They will then participate in a demonstration showing how filter feeders are effective eaters in their environment. This is a well-thought-out lab activity.
Plankton / Phytoplankton
Students discuss the importance of plankton in the ocean ecosystem. In this biology instructional activity, students identify the different types plankton by observing them under the microscope. They explain how plankton population affect global climate.
Classification of an Invertebrate: Sponge
Students investigate the invertebrate sponge. In this invertebrates lesson plan, students observe the sponge, Grantia, using a dissecting microscope. Students answer questions about their observations and view six other invertebrates. They compare synthetic sponges to real sponges and discuss outer protective coatings.
