Circles in the Landscape: Irrigating Oklahoma Crops
How do you grow crops in a area with insufficient rainfall? Why you irrigate, of course. Class members investigate irrigation systems by designing a system of their own. After examining irrigation related concepts, vocabulary terms, and completing a rainfall activity worksheet, groups design their own irrigation system to be constructed on a home lawn.
One With Nature: Lesson 4
Interest your class with the bell-ringer! Individuals will walk around in search of someone who has seen the natural disasters described on their "I've Been There" activity sheet. Then, divide your class into groups and have them define the weather related terms from their activity sheet. In groups or independently, learners use the Internet to compare their definitions.
Compound Sentences and Uses of Semi-Colons
A clear presentation on compound sentences and semi-colons, is available for your use. You might split this up over two or three days so that you can focus in on one topic at a time. The animations are sophisticated and help to clarify the information. Note: he slides include some complicated grammatical terminology.
Classroom Meteorologists: An Experiential Approach to Learning about Seasons and Weather
Students examine several concepts about weather in the seven lessons of this unit. This year long activity helps students to gather data seasonally about wind, clouds, precipitation, and temperature. Earth's three climate zones are examined and the chan
Fourth graders explore the design and workings of meteorology through this unit of nine lessons. The interactions of Earth's systems, its structure, and its dynamic changes are probed.
Fourth graders generate an oral presentation on the weather. In this weather lesson, 4th graders watch the weather for a week and record the data on a chart. Students give a weather report at the end of the week.
Severe Weather Trackers
Students explore weather terminology and the jobs that are associated with it. In this weather lesson students write about thunderstorms and make a tornado.
Weather - Clouds and Precipitation
It's raining! It's pouring! Your class will not be snoring when viewing this presentation. Cloud formation and types are explained in the first half. Forms of precipitation are detailed in the second half. Concepts are explained thoroughly and the overall presentation is attractive. Consider replacing some of the photos that are not very crisp to make this PowerPoint a top-notch resource to use with your meteorology unit.
Cloudy With a Chance of...What?
Students read about a town where no one ever goes hungry because the sky provides food. They participate in various activities to explore weather, healthy and unhealthy foods, and create a database.
Science:Effects of Weathering
Seventh graders take an outdoor observation walk around the campus and take soil samples. Working in groups , they conduct experiments with rocks and soil that demonstrate the effects of different types of erosion.
Students continue their examination of the existence of life on Earth. In groups, they determine the role of the water cycle and other biogeochemical cycles play in keeping balance on Earth. They participate in experiments to discover how moisture gets in and out of the air. To end the lesson, they compare and contrast the relationships between biotic-biotic, biotic-abiotic, and abiotic-abiotic interrelationships.
Not So Neutral Views
Students explore ways to use indicators to distinguish between acids and bases. They conduct an experiment to model and discuss the harmful effect of acid rain in our living and non-living environment.
How the Great Salt Lake Relates To Us
Third graders name at least three resources that come for the Great Salt Lake. They describe at least one product that is made from each resource. They name and locate on a map at least five different geographic regions where Great Salt Lake products are marketed.
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.
The Water Cycle
In this water cycle learning exercise, learners learn about the 3 different stages of the water cycle: evaporation, condensation and precipitation. They then solve the 12 problems on the page. The answers are on the last page.
Vocabulary Building Activity
The four worksheets here are provided to introduce your learners to new vocabulary on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Each list contains seven vocabulary words focused on a specfic vowel pair. First the learner hears the word, and then they hear the definition. The second activity requires learners to unscramble the jumbled vocabulary words, and the final activity has them write a sentence for each vocabulary word. Then, record how quickly and accurately learners can say the list of vocabulary words.
Fifth graders study the water cycle. In this science lesson plan, 5th graders distinguish among evaporation, condensation, and precipitation phases of the water cycle.
Exploring Arizona's Biotic Communities Lesson 2: Biotic Communities Vocabulary
Part of a unit on Arizona's biotic communities, this instructional 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. The rest of this outstanding unit can be found online or via Lesson Planet.
Guided Reading Lesson Plan: Where the Red Fern Grows
Students read, Where the Red Fern Grows over a span of several days. In this reading comprehension lesson, students answer discussion questions about the chapters they are reading. Students also write reflections for the chapters they have read, and the questions the lesson poses.
