Layers of the Rainforest
What a great way to discuss the rainforest! Learners discuss the importance of adaptation in the environment and how it is linked to survival. They use critical thinking and inference skills to place animals and insects in the different strata of the rainforest based on diet, body modification, and prior knowledge.
What is pH and Why is It Important?
Students investigate about acids, bases, and pH and relate this information to the problem of acid deposition. They use pH paper, students test common household substances to determine whether they are acidic, basic, or neutral. Pupils consider how using photovoltaic panels to generate electricity can reduce the amount of acid deposition.

Exploring Arizona's Biotic Communities Lesson 2: Biotic Communities Vocabulary
Part of a unit on Arizona's biotic communities, this activity focuses on the vocabulary to be used. Terms include biodiversity, topography, desert, hybridization, niche, and more! Youngsters will define these words from contextual situations, use them in sentences, and then solve a crossword puzzle by the definitions.

Acid Rain Effects
Get out the goggles and conduct a simple experiment to model and explore the harmful effects of acid rain (vinegar) on living (green leaf and eggshell) and non-living (paper clip) objects. Young chemists observe and describe the harmful effects acid rain has on living and non-living items, they explain why engineers are concerned about acid rain and discuss how they are working to prevent pollution and acid rain.
