Can You Breathe Like a Pinniped?
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.
In this internet privacy lesson, students look on websites and identify their privacy policies. Students discuss a scenario in which their private information is shared without their permission. A fine worksheet embedded in the plan has students explore the privacy policies on kids’ websites. Excellent lesson!
