Philippines Lesson: Smoky Valley
Students working together in groups discover what happens to their trash. They discover alternatives to throwing trash away and how to reduce the amount of trash they have during the day. They present their information to the class.
How Do Things Fall?
Pupils observe falling objects. They discover the rate of falling is based on air resistance and not the weight of the objects. They discuss how engineers use this type of information to design aerodynamic shapes.
Under the Sea
Students imagine and describe fictitious sea animals that might live in the ocean. After reading an article, they reflect on new discoveries found in the ocean recently. Using the internet, they research the interdependence of animals they use to survive. They also write a short science fiction story to end the lesson.
Under the Sea
Students use facts and imagination to invent imaginary deep sea creatures. They create a classroom museum exhibit on real organisms from the abyss and write creative stories about these animals. In addition, they write a story to explain the adaptations of an ocean animal.
A series of attention-grabbing demonstrations and lab activities is outlined in this document. Through them, chemistry kids appreciate the behavior of gases. Inflate balloons, marshmallows, and toothpaste tubes without adding air! Use syringes and gauges to discover relationships between temperature and pressure. Teach Charles' and Boyle's laws along the way. Check out this illustrious resource and you will find yourself more than prepared to teach gas behavior concepts.
Learners explain the concept of gene sequence analysis. In this gene lesson, students draw inferences about phylogenetic similarities of different organisms.
To Fish or Not to Fish?
Students demonstrate the decision-making process for marine reserves designations. In this role-playing instructional activity students analyze maps and data relating to a proposed reserve. They formulate the best decisions based on overall issues.
Pressure and Volume of Gases
High schoolers investigate pressure and volume as they relate to gases. In this pressure and volume lesson plan, students observe multiple demonstrations related to air pressure. The develop an understanding of the relationship between pressure and volume in gases as Boyle's Law states and how a manometer and barometer work.
Egg Walk Challenge
Middle schoolers design plastic shoes to walk on eggs without breaking them. In this pressure lesson, students consider all the factors needed to design shoes to walk on eggs without breaking them. Middle schoolers calculate the PSI pressure, the force or body weight and the surface area of the shoe they designed. They test their shoes on the eggs.
Skill Twenty-Eight: Keep and Use Records
Even with the ease with which we can access and save documents online these days, the practice of maintaining personal important records is a valuable life skill to have and to expose to your students.
Fifth graders read to find the purpose of a piece of writing. They explore the theme of Bridge to Terabithia through events in the story. Furthermore, they consider how they would find a theme and examine a new text for its theme.
This Old Tubeworm
Students plot data to construct and interpret a graph about vestimentiferans at cold-seep sites in the Gulf of Mexico. In this deep sea lesson plan, students plot data provided for the growth of tubeworms. They use the graphs to determine growth rates and ages of the tubeworms.
Building an Underwater Habitat
Students investigate underwater habitats. In this underwater habitat instructional activity, students study Aquarius and design their own underwater habitat that can sustain life. Students work in groups and present their habitats to the class. Students justify their project and answer questions about how the habitat is constructed.
The Galapagos Islands
Fourth graders are given a set of cards with sea animals and their diets. They form a food web by passing yarn to a predator or prey. They write a summary that explains the disappearance of the giant tortoises.
How Diverse is That?
Compare various types of biological diversity in a coral reef and calculate a numeric indicator that describes the diversity found in coral communities. Your class can work in groups to look at the abundance and distribution data of species in two communities. This lesson gives the opportunity to study both the biological topics and statistical mechnisms.
Is Gulf War Syndrome a Significant Health Issue the U.S. Government has Tried to Cover Up?
Students examine the issues surrounding Gulf War Syndrome. In groups, they analyze evidence from the war and medical information. They participate in a debate in which they support their feelings on whether the government of the United States tried to hide this issue from the Americacn public. To end the lesson, they read articles from veterns who suffer from the disease.
My Wet Robot
Students design an underwater vehicle. In this engineering lesson plan, students will design an underwater robot that includes specific systems for it to function properly. Each group will present their prototype to the class.
Students will work in small groups to gather information about the geography, history, economy, climate, culture, and other aspects of life on the island of Eleuthera. Lesson contains adaptations for all levels.
Ocean Exploration: Shapes and Patterns Under the Sea
So many shapes in our vast oceans. Young explorers can discover new shapes in a variety of ways in this lesson plan. One way is having free exploration with a pattern shape kit handed out by the teacher. Another is by viewing a video, Ocean Environments: 3D Sea, and identifying shapes of animals throughout the video. Then they can work in groups to create pictures of animals from a pattern kit after listening to a story, Sea Shapes by Suse
Conversation Corner: Thailand
In this Thailand instructional activity, students complete short answer questions about Thailand after viewing pictures and researching Thailand. Students complete 16 questions.
