Students 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. Students consider ways such efforts can help in marine conservation efforts.
Learners 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.
High schoolers investigate marine benthic habitats and their importance. For 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. High schoolers answer 6 questions from the data they gather.
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.
Students access data to characterize coral reefs. In this scientific research instructional activity, students access data and explain the need for such data when monitoring coral reefs. They will identify and explain three major threats to coral reefs.
Students investigate marine life by researching aquatic organisms on the Internet. In this oceanography instructional activity, 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 participate in an interactive instructional activity using the scientific method to study biodiversity. In this insect monitoring instructional activity, students simulate the layers of soil and the insects that would live there. Students design parameters to collect insects and a research timeframe. Students create a graph of the species found.
Practice reading comprehension with the short reading passage "Grandpa's Whale." Then monitor readers' understanding by completing the four multiple choice questions.
Students analyze how scientists monitor marine habitats. They use the information they gathered to conduct their own field study site. They record their observations and share them with the class.
Tenth graders explore how technology can be used to monitor the environment in urban areas. For example, a sustainable community meets its present needs without sacrificing the ability of others, now and in the future, to meet their own needs.
In this technology worksheet, students find the answers to the questions concerning the network administrator's monitoring of computer application usage.
Learners develop a sense of classroom community through goal-setting, decision-making, and brainstorming. They monitor the effects of their plan by determining whether short term goals are being achieved.
Students use heart rate monitors and complete a swimming and running test. These tests allow students to obtain personal data, to manipulate the data through calculations of various parameters, and to graphically represent the data.
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.
Young scholars create their own monitoring program for natural water. They collect samples from an appropriate sampling site. They perform chemical and biological analyses of their samples. They present their information to the class.
Students set up their own monitoring system. They collect samples from an appropriate sampling site. They analyze data and determine the water quality. They present their information to the class and draw a conclusion.
Students experience how devices can be connected to a computer to monitor and measure changes in environmental conditions. They observe and monitor external changes in temperature and how to log in data collected from the observations.
Pupils explore the relevance of water quality monitoring in relation to a local wetland ecosystem. They conduct standard water quality tests using wet tests and CBL calculators and probes. Student record and interpret the results.
Students discuss why monitoring fish populations is important. They develop a multi-year fisheries management plan and budget.
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.
