Students are exposed to the variety of ways in which scientist use remote sensing and it used in everyday life. They investigate about zooplankton and fish. Students list the two important groups of organisms in both aquatic and marine environments. They conduct research on zooplankton.
Ecology aces examine sea surface temperature maps and relate temperatures to concentration in fish and zooplankton populations. Take your class to a computer lab and provide experience with actual remote sensing data. Some of the links no longer work, but there is plenty of material here to make for an effective experience. This could also be used in an engineering or career exploration situation.
Learners construct a model of the hydrologic cycle, and observe that water is an element of a cycle in the natural environment. They explain how the hydrologic cycle works and why it is important, and compare the hydrologic cycle to other cycles found in nature. This is one of the most thoroughly thought-through, one-period lesson plans I've ever come across!

In this statistics and matrix worksheet, students test their understanding of basic matrix operations and statistical analysis. They organize given data and identify the quartiles. Students determine the best graph to present data. This two-page worksheet contains sixteen multiple-choice problems.
Students recognize Michigan on a map and understand how its climate is affected by the Great Lakes. In this Michigan food instructional activity, students play a trivia game to identify the produce of Michigan. Students relate the climate in each part of Michigan and why it is good for the particular crop grown there.
Learners identify parts of the brain and what each part does. In this brain anatomy lesson, students participate in activities that focus on the job of each part of the brain co connect the task to the brain section. Learners make a model of the brain and put things they have learned into the model.
