Students compare the anatomy of temperature and polar fishes. They explore the adverse effects of cold on metabolism and physiology and discuss how polar fishes adapt to their environments. Comparisons are also made to the DNA sequences of unrelated Arctic and Antarctic fish.
Energy in the Natural Environment
Students examine the flow of energy through the natural environment. In groups, they describe the effect of energy on the atmosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere. To end the lesson, they experiment with the chemical and physical principles on energy.
Effect Of Technology on the Environment
Fifth graders create their own oil spill to explore the various ways in which technology can have a negative impact on the environment. They discuss the daily use of technology and it's ability to be a positive for some groups and a negative for others.

New! There's Something in the Air
Clever! In order to compare indoor and outdoor dispersal rates for the movement of gases and particles through air, collaborators will participate in a classroom experiment. Set up a circular grid and set students on lines that are spaced in two-meter increments from the center. Stand in the middle and peel an orange, having learners raise a hand when they can smell the oils and recording the time. The experiment is then repeated outdoors. The intent is to demonstrate that in an enclosed area, air pollution can be concentrated. Make sure to bring extra oranges to serve at the end of the lesson!
