Let's Build a Trucking Story
Students study the occupation of truck driving and transportation. In this transportation lesson, students identify an item that was transported to the classroom. Students identify key elements in the transportation process and listen to a story about a product getting to their classroom.
Water Cannot Be Wasted
Challenge your young environmentalists to prove how much water they can conserve while engaging in a wet, watery task. They discuss how much water is used during daily activities, such as showering or doing the dishes. Then, in teams, they attempt to complete a series of tasks using only two liters of water. The team with the most water left over wins the challenge. This is a fantastic way to help learners think like conservationists, it also fosters a deeper understanding of the very real water crisis.
New! Managing Solid Waste
When Earth Day rolls around, a lot of kids ask why recycling is so important. Middle schoolers find out their own answers by examining 10 ordinary household items, working in a group to estimate how long it would take for each to break down in a landfill, then comparing their estimates to the actual decomposition time. Next, kids examine each of the three Rs — reduce, reuse, recycle — and think about what they could do to minimize their contributions to the local landfill. Finally, each child writes a letter to the editor of the local newspaper about the issue of landfills, which must include certain vocabulary words that have been emphasized throughout the lesson.
Fossil Fuels and Climate Change: Our Cars and CO2
Students discuss the relationship between the burning of fossil fuels and transportation. Various methods are used to reinforce this instructional activity.
Early Filtrate Functioning
In this biology worksheet, students look at the function of filtering in the nephron of the kidneys and the biochemistry is emphasized.
Packaging and Transport
Students examine the methods by which food is packaged and transported to their dinner tables. In this packaging and transporting lesson plan, students explore how machines help people grow food. Students also obtain knowledge about how machines help people package, transport, and store food. Students take a closer look at how eggs are packaged and how egg packaging can affect the environment.
Active Transport in Malpighian Tubules
Students examine the energy dependence of active transport as well as te properties of specificity, competition, saturation, and inhibition. They anesthetize an insect and inject saline into the abdomen.
Renewable Energy in Connecticut - Softening Our Footprint through Sustainable Energy Use
Students explore energy conservation. In this environmental lesson plan, students will look at data showing the amounts of energy used, our carbon footprint, and will research a power source. This unit allows for a deeper understanding of energy and the impact people have on the environment.
Autoregulation and Capillary Dynamics
In this autoregulation and capillary dynamics worksheet, students read through notes, label 3 diagrams, complete 5 equations and 45 short answer review questions.
Mathematics in Bioengineering: Its Application for Today's Students
High schoolers explore the different fields of bioengineering. They will create and interpret graphs from cancel cells data. They then calculate the amount of drugs found in blood and eliminated by the body over time.
Urinary System Review
In this biology instructional activity, high schoolers examine the internal functions of the human body while considering the factors needed to explain the physiological reactions.
My Mind is a Blank: Cellular Functions
In this my mind is a blank worksheet, fill in each blank with vocabulary terms that are related to cellular functions. Students also answer questions regarding the microscope.
Road Safety- Alert Communications and Emergency Response
Students examine the effectiveness of road safety organizations. In this road safety lesson, students identify three road safety watch agencies that aid truck drivers to keep them safe. They look at the skills that truck drivers gain through safety training, and finally, they research other road safety organizations. They write and present a 500 word essay based on their research.
Toward a Sustainable Agriculture
Learners analyze organic production systems. In this organic agriculture lesson, students examine key organic practices for both crop and livestock. This lesson includes 5 different activities, 4 critical thinking questions and background information.
Vocab Chapter Seven: Transport
A note-taking resource for the topic of transport between cells. If formatting is important to you, there are some slight changes you'll need to make to this Word document to make it consistent.
Fourth graders conduct hands-on research on the evolution of specific transportation systems, including the systems of canals and locks developed to allow travel on the Great Lakes and rivers and the subsequent creation of increasingly technological transportation solutions.
Fifth graders research the evolution of transportation systems. In this transportation instructional activity, 5th graders research the early methods of transportation and the technology that advanced the systems. Students work in groups to present their research to the class and describe how their mode fits into a period timeline. Students predict as a class the future of transportation.
Guided Inquiry Module on Cell Transport
Students explore processes of cell transport such as osmosis, diffusion and active transport. They use eggs and various solutions to set up various cell transport conditions. They make predictions about the results and monitor the eggs for five days.
Osmosis and Passive Transport
Students model and observe passive transport as related to cell membranes. In this scientific inquiry lesson, students investigate the effect of solute concentration on the passive transport of molecules across a semipermeable membrane.
Farming 1: Farming Machines
Second graders explore different farm machines. In this farm lesson, 2nd graders discover the importance of farmers, and crops. Students discuss healthy eating and how crops are packaged. Students read books about farms and how bread is made. Students create posters to promote farm equipment.
