Students recognize the ea=/E/ correspondence in spoken and written words. They participate in a group letterbox lesson. In groups of two, they practice reading with each other, taking turns reading one page at a time, identifying the /ea/ words.
In this government creation worksheet, students work in groups to create a government and country creation project. Students create a flag, slogan, seal, anthem, educational system, langauge, constitution, government, customs, map and transportation activity, occupations and currency for their country.
Students research and investigate the Aleutian and Pribilof Islands. They analyze maps, research the ethnic identity, industry, and conservation of St. George Island, and present the information to the class in the form of a report and class debate.e
Learners observe the changes of a closed chemical system. They record and analyze the data as they manipulate the system. They answer questions to end the instructional activity.
Students examine the letter 's'. Through instruction and modeling they explore the sound the letter makes, how the letter is written, words that contain the letter, etc. They say tongue twisters with the /s/ sound in them. They read stories with /s/ words.
Students are able to graph data that they generated in the elephant seal exercise using proper format and labeling. They are able to interpret the graphs they created and make A) conclusions, and B) predictions based on that graph.
Students decode correspondence in order to become better, fluent readers. When the letters e and a are put together they make the E sound. They become more fluent readers through listening for a correspondence in speech, in text, and decoding.
Welcome to the coldest, driest, windiest place on Earth: Antarctica. Krill serve as the food to support the entire ecosystem here. It is why fish, seals, whales, and sea birds can exist! Much of this ecosystem has remained a mystery until a recent expedition discovered 700 new species! How will climate change affect this ecosystem? Brainstorm possible effects with your environmentalists.
By 2100, it is projected that nearly all of the Arctic's sea ice will be lost. Explore this region and learn about the effects of global warming on our polar bears, ring seals, whales, and narwhals. What will happen to our arctic sea life if we don't make some drastic changes?
Over 1,000 different species of fish are native to the Hawaiian Islands! Voyage under the sea for some magnificent close ups. Then take a trip to the sandy shores to learn about the monk seals, who were nearly forced into extinction in the 1800s.
A well-written lesson plan, second in a series of four, gets high schoolers exploring how the Antarctic food web is impacted by climate change and the associated melting of polar ice sheets. It begins with a PowerPoint presentation about the polar ecosystem. Small groups use beads and game cards to model how decreasing sea ice impacts the food web. To close, a class discussion ensues about ocean acidification and what pupils learned from the activity. Be sure to consider using the entire unit in your environmental studies course.
New Review Investigation: Ozone Snaps
This investigation of the effect of air pollution on rubber bands is a snap! After closely observing the properties of a fresh rubber band, learners let them sit outdoors, both sealed off from and exposed to, open air. After a week, observations are made again to determine if being exposed to possible polluted air has made a difference. The intent is to demonstate that ozone has an effect on rubber.
Students discuss the concept of competition in nature and investigate the competition between the gray seals and harbor seals of Sable Island along with the role of sharks in this ecosystem. They illustrate maps and write prognosis paragraphs.
New Review Bearly Any Ice
After reviewing food chains, your class members participate in an arctic predator-prey game that exemplifies the impact of climate change of food availability. If you are in a hurry, skip this lesson, but if you have the time to understand how it is played, it can become a poignant lesson in what is happening with arctic ecosystems.
Cooperative groups select from one of four scenarios regarding hurricanes, greenhouse gases, thunderstorms, or the global climate domino effect. They discuss what kind of research needs to be conducted to address their chosen scenario and match it to an actual field project. From a list of research instruments, they determine which would be most useful to their project. Mostly, this is an exercise understanding how scientists plan and carry out research. It can be used at the beginning of the school year when you are just introducing your class to the scientific process.
Soil scientists gain experience with an infiltrometer can to determine the infiltration rates at different locations on campus. If you are using the entire unit, the class has already analyzed water flow and soil types, so they should have eliminated several possible locations for setting up a rain garden. The lesson can, however, stand alone as a lesson on soil characteristics. This is an activity that would be skipped over if you are planning a rain garden with primary classes.
Learners articulate their understanding of the framers' intentions with respect to the separation of church and state, explore the issue of church/state separation and how it is currently manifesting itself in Ohio by reading and discussing "Holy Cow! Ohio Has A Motto Problem." They examine other church/state issues and their resolution through research and discussion. Finally they synthesize and reflect upon the issue by creating a poster and writing an essay.
A matching activity on some common marine mammals is here for you. In it, 12 animals such as polar bears and seals are found. Each of the animals has a colorful and accurate picture associated with it. The bonus question at the bottom reads, "How are all of these animals related to each other?"
Students will explore the animals and people living in the Arctic. In this science lesson, students locate Alaska on a globe, discuss its climate and geographical features, and identify common arctic animals. Students complete the first part of a KWL chart about animals that live in the arctic, listen to the book In Arctic Waters by Laura Crawford Silvan, and add new facts that they learned after reading the book.
Almost 200 slides make this a vast collection! It is a quirky collection, titled "Marine Fisheries Management," but having little to do with that occupation. What you will find are two-toned blue backgrounds with no pictures, but a few brief phrases about the ocean on each slide. Information addresses ocean zones, light filtration, salinity, water movements, and other physical characteristics. Then it introduces marine animals from microscopic plankton to the enormous whale. Use this slide show as a skeleton for building an entire oceanography and marine biology unit!
