Splash: Monitoring Humpback Whales
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.
Volunteer Monitoring???Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary
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.
Coastal Monitoring and Observations-Bottom Watching
Students 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. Students answer 6 questions from the data they gather.
Monitoring Coral Reefs
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.
Who Has the Data? Monitoring Coral Reefs
Students access data to characterize coral reefs. In this scientific research lesson, 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.
Monitoring Life In The Rocky Intertidal Ecosystem
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 participate in an interactive lesson using the scientific method to study biodiversity. In this insect monitoring lesson, 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.
Monitor Understanding: Week 15
Practice reading comprehension with the short reading passage "Grandpa's Whale." Then monitor readers' understanding by completing the four multiple choice questions.
Blue Ribbon Readers: Monitoring and Repairing
An online interactive activity encourages young readers to employ the monitoring/repairing strategy to become better readers. Class members identify unfamiliar words, decode them, and use them in other contexts.
Self-Monitoring Strategies and Vocabulary Games
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.
Heart Rate Monitoring
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.
Monitoring Urban Development
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.
Monitoring a Habitat
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.
Working With Task Monitor
In this technology worksheet, students find the answers to the questions concerning the network administrator's monitoring of computer application usage.
Creating Community in the Classroom: Monitoring Progress
Students 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.
Monitoring Energy Expenditure
Learners 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.
Water Monitoring Vocabulary
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.
Walking on the Path to Better Health
Walk your way to health with this great resource! Walking is a valuable physical activity that can be done frequently and with ease by learners of all ages. "Warm up" by reviewing the benefits of physical activity with your class and brainstorming ways to incorporate more activity into your days. Then, have your learners practice walking in pairs while monitoring individual intensity levels and effort. For elementary and middle school, try this first as a whole-group activity in order to model how to appropriately and effectively walk in pairs.
The Tides-Ups and Downs
High schoolers investigate tidal patters and the forces that cause the tides. In this tidal lesson plan, students explore and research the tides and complete 43 questions about the causes of the tides, how they are monitored and measured and the tidal cycles. High schoolers explain tidal phenomena using models, visual media, theatrical presentations or publications. Students analyze real time water level data from monitoring stations and answer questions about their observations.
A Site to See
Students identify the risks and benefits of living next to a volcano. After reading an article, they discuss the behaviors of an active volcano. Using the Internet, they work together to research volcano-monitoring techniques and create mock news segments. They interview an adult who remembers an eruption from the past and reflect on how volcano monitoring systems have changed over time.
