New! Sea Lions and Seals
What is the difference between a sea lion and a seal? Which one has ear flaps? How do they use different fins to propel themselves through the water? Compare and contrast these two curious critters through an adorable, informative short video. The only question left unanswered is which animal is cuter.
In this seals and sea lions graphic organizer learning exercise, students compare and contrast the head, front flippers, and hind flippers of seals and sea lions.
Although the lesson plan was written for learners about to visit an aquarium, there is plenty of valuable material here, even without access to the specified exhibit. Advanced biology or environmental science learners are introduced to convergent and divergent evolution concepts and compare the homologous or analogous structures of otters, seals, and sea lions. You could use pictures from the Internet in place of going to the actual exhibit animals.
High schoolers use the internet to complete a species scavenger hunt. In groups, they answer questions given to them about sea lions, rockfish and killer whales. As a class, they identify any questions they have and discuss the role government should have in protecting species.
In this literature quiz worksheet, students first read the book Astro the Stellar Sea Lion. Students then complete a ten question multiple choice comprehension quiz about the book.
In this manatee and sea lion word search worksheet, students locate 21 words that are contained in the puzzle. They locate words from a word bank that is located to the right of the puzzle which includes words such as carnivore, playful, and whiskers.
Students identify and analyze the various roles organisms play in food webs, populations, communities and ecosystems. Students assess the requirements for sustaining healthy local ecosystems. STudents evaluate human impacts on local ecosystems. Students plan appropriate procedures to test hypotheses.
In this science and math in literature worksheet, students read the story Astro: The Stellar Sea Lion and answer the 10 math and science questions.
Young learners compare the breathing patterns of different animals in this pinniped lesson. They examine the breathing pattern of California sea lions and northern elephant seals. Pupils collect, compare and analyze data concerning breathing patterns and heart rates. Afterward, learners explore their own breathing patterns.
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.
Pupils touch, see, smell, and hear marine animals that live in a marina. In this marine animals lesson plan, students take field trip to a marine environment after studying the animals.
Fourth graders collect data about the habitats of pinniped adaptations using digital probes. They determine how pinnipeds make adaptations to their natural environment by completing an experiment to determine how human and pinniped bodies conserve heat. They use a digital probe.
Young scholars read about categories of mammals and their features. Students then construct a marine animal, using given print outs in the instructional activity. Young scholars then create adaptations for their mammal, using a web site reference for guidance.
Fifth graders examine plants and animals in two ecosystems and compare them. In this ecosystem survival lesson, 5th graders compare and contrast a coral reef and kelp forest ecosystem. Students investigate the abiotic and biotic factors of the ecosystems. Students complete related worksheets for the topic.
Students gain a better understanding of the Arctic, its biology as well as the inhabitants. They then perform activities necessary to develop motor skills, listening and cognitive skills.
Students visit Conservation in Action web site to watch three video interviews with Vancouver Aquarium researchers, complete Careers in Conservation worksheet, research threats facing species featured on Conservation web site, and create campaign to protect killer whales, Steller sea lions, or rockfish in Pacific Canada.
Learners participate in a variety of station acitivities surrounding their study of pinnipeds.
Learners engage in a lesson that is about pinnipeds and answer guided questions while brainstorming from prior knowledge during class discussion. Students discuss the adaptations of pinnipeds and how they are used to the advantage of the animals.
Students examine the white shark. They think critically about a set of shark facts and predict whether the statements are true or false. Students describe a year in the life of a white shark living in the Red Triangle. They create a public service announcement promoting either the protection of humans from sharks or the protection of sharks from humans.
