Algebra learners like this resource because it is easy to understand and it relates to their lives. Whether you are starting a new workout routine, or just climbing the stairs, your heart rate increases and decreases throughout the day. Have your number crunchers construct a graph of this model and answer some simple questions. If you have the time, make it more personal and monitor pulse rates at rest and after 20 jumping jacks. Either way, it is sure to keep your class engaged.
Middle and high schoolers identify how to discover a word's meaning by exploring context clues and any pictures, diagrams, photographs, and charts that might be included. They continue this process with other examples and locate one on their own. They finish by writing their own think-aloud on paper to share with the class.
Learners discuss prior knowledge about marine mammals and then endangered marine mammals. They focus on reasons for the endangered status. Students are introduced to different methods of marine mammal monitoring. Learners consider ways such efforts can help in marine conservation efforts.
As the title implies, this is a list of vocabulary terms relating to water monitoring. If your ecology class is learning about how to test water quality, this will be an appropriate reference sheet for them. As a bonus, if you live in Texas near the Little Bear Creek watershed, you will find a topographic map of the area.
Students investigate marine benthic habitats and their importance. In this coastal monitoring and bottom watching lesson plan, students study the importance of marine benthic habitats, they describe 3 sources of stress on marine benthic habitats and they retrieve and analyze data from a geographic information system about marine benthic habitats. Students answer 6 questions from the data they gather.
Students investigate marine life by researching aquatic organisms on the Internet. In this oceanography lesson, students monitor algae and animals of the ocean by identifying their population and habitat on data sheet ID cards. Students discuss why it is important to monitor life in the oceanic ecosystem.
Students explore the monitoring efforts in Monterey Bay and Gulf of the Farallones national marine sanctuaries. They develop an ecosystem monitoring plan that explains the rationale for ecosystem monitoring, the methods for monitoring based on research, the people involved in the project, the steps of the monitoring plan, and the benefit of the monitoring project to the area.
Students investigate data on coral reef monitoring in a marine protected area in the Florida keys. In this coral reef lesson plan, students use online data from a marine protected coral reef to complete a worksheet about coral monitoring. Students write a report answering given questions and develop an understanding of the characteristics of healthy coral reefs.
Middle schoolers participate in an interactive lesson using the scientific method to study biodiversity. For this insect monitoring lesson, students simulate the layers of soil and the insects that would live there. Middle schoolers design parameters to collect insects and a research timeframe. Students create a graph of the species found.
After reviewing the causes and effects of climate change, students become observers for "Plant Watch," a program to monitor the effects of climate change on plants. Students record blooming and leafing dates for selected local species and submit their observations to researchers.
Students describe the relationship between exercise and health. They name ways to monitor their health and the equipment used to do so. Students name solutions to common health issues and explain why good nutrition and exercise are crucial to health. They are able to explain the relationship between exercise and the effect on the body (before and after).
Students explore and discuss importance of strength, endurance, and stamina in Native American culture, practice skills such as back push, bench reach, muskox fight, one-and-two-foot high kick, and high kick stand, and monitor, improve, and set performance goals for themselves.
