Third graders identify the living and non living things in a book read aloud and discuss the interactions represented in the book. Then, they research and include a list of food that each animal needs in an ecosystem. Finally, 3rd graders observe their mini-ecosystems or artificial habitats for at least a couple of weeks, recording daily observations in their science journals.
In this English Learners number sentence worksheet, students look at the pictures and read the description for the aquarium, terrarium, bird feeder, canary, and collar. Students then solve the riddles by inserting one of the words from the word box.
Learners create their own water cycle in a terrarium. In this water cycle lesson, students research the water cycle and complete a worksheet using the Internet. They create a water cycle of their own in a jar with stones, sand, soil, and seeds or plants.
Second graders identify human and insect senses and where they are located on the body. They maintain a cricket terrarium for experimentation. They realize the value of the senses by observing, recording, discussing and drawing conclusions.
Students examine the habits of various organism and evaluate the need for conserving natural resources. They role-play as migrating birds traveling between habitats encountering hazards along the way. They observe animals in a terrarium using camouflage techniques.
Fourth graders place packets of cards in order to sequence the life cycle of a meal worm. They then become familiar with the mealworms and their habitats in discovering how to take care of them and make lists of questions about the mealworms.
Learners conduct an internet study regarding habitat, ecosystem, biome and the region they live in. They observe the habitat by visiting a State Park and observing the organisms in their habitat. In addition, they create their own habitat such as a terrarium,
Third graders explore water by examining a terrarium.
Third graders plant seeds and see how they will grow in a specific temperature and are questioned about different environments and how they think crops would grow there. They form a hypothesis, perform an experiment, and then collect results and come up with a solution.
Elementary life science explorers compare and contrast aquatic and terrestrial plants (elodea and soybeans) in a Venn diagram. Some background information is provided to support direct instruction, and general instructions are provided to guide learners through the investigation. There is no lab sheet provided; as learners are meant to record observations in a science journal.
High schoolers engage in a lesson of investigating the amount of water that is transpired in a one day cycle. They conduct research to find the purpose of transpiration and find information to explain the value to a plant and explain how transpiration effects the climate. Students measure the water levels of a plant as it takes in water.
Students learn the different plant parts and their function.
Learners view species of plants and animals in their native habitats. They design a classroom habitat and create a plan for raising the necessary funds to accomplish their project.
Students explore timed observations for science investigations. They record ideas on a chart related to a classroom closed terrarium. They repeat their observations for several days and time observations for changing shadows during the day.
Young scholars explain and identify the water cycle. r cycle. They observe a video on the topic. Using Kidspiration software, students outline the four groups of the water cycle. Young scholars demonstrate the water cycle through the creation of a terrarium. They develop a PowerPoint presentation and share it with the class.
Fourth graders share with the class what they already know about rainforests. Using a diagram, they label the layers of the rainforests and identify the animals that live in them. In groups, they create their own rainforest environment and share them with the class.
Students construct and maintain model of natural habitat, suggest improvements to the model of the natural habitat to make it more realistic and habitable, and demonstrate careful observation and recording of how animals survive in their habitat.
Students examine how plants grow in a closed system, observe condensation, select plants for arboretum, and create recycled terrarium from a two liter soda bottle.
Here is a terrific earth science lesson plan on the water cycle that's designed for grades two to five. In it, understanding of the water cycle will be enhanced. The lesson plan focuses primarily on evaporation, and what happens to the water vapor once it's back up in the atmosphere. This fabulous, 8-page plan has everything you need to implement it with your class. Terrific worksheets, web links, and detailed activities are all here for you.
In one of the more memorable Spangler episodes, Spangler has a large terrarium filled with sulfur-hexafluoride gas, which is six times heavier than the air we breathe! It has some amazing properties, one of which it doesn't allow electricity to be conducted through it. It also drastically changes the way a person's speaking voice sounds when breathed in. Very interesting and very funny!
