Plankton

For Teachers 4th - 12th Standards
Plankton: so much more than just a SpongeBob character. Three different activities have kids looking at both phytoplankton and zooplankton in pictures, as well as collecting their own samples (depending on your access to a saltwater...
Lesson Planet

Fish and zooplankton habitat through remote sensing

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students are exposed to the variety of ways in which scientist use remote sensing and it used in everyday life. They investigate about zooplankton and fish. Students list the two important groups of organisms in both aquatic and marine...

Immersion Presents Monterey Bay

For Teachers 4th - 6th
Students study Monterey Bay. In this Monterey Bay lesson, students create a model of upwelling around Monterey Bay. Students simulate surface water movement relative to prevailing winds.
Lesson Planet

Ocean Drifters

For Teachers 5th - 6th
Young scholars define terms, and identify three ways in which plankton are adapted for life in the open ocean.  In this ocean drift lesson students design a planktonic organism. 
Lesson Planet

Aquatic Foodweb

For Teachers 5th - 8th
Students explore what a food web is. In this science lesson plan, students examine how nutrients and other pollutants enter a lake and play a food web game whereby students pretend they are either zooplankton, planktivore, piscivore, or...
Lesson Planet

Plankton

For Teachers K - 4th
Students explore the attributes of plankton. In this plankton lesson plan, students read This is the Sea That Feeds Us and discuss food chains. Students discover the differences between phytoplankton and zooplankton as they examine the...
Lesson Planet

Sinking Races

For Teachers 2nd - 8th
Students build plankton models and compete to see which sinks most slowly. They write, or orally present ,the adaptations they incorporated to slow the sinking rate of their organisms. Race results can be grounds for some prizes!

Zooplankton

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Holoplankton are always plankton, whereas meroplankton are only plankton as larvae. Reveal several examples of each to your young marine biologists with this PowerPoint presentation. The first seven slides, an introduction to...

The Great Plankton Race

For Teachers 5th - 6th
Young scholars construct plankton models from materials of various shapes and densities to simulate adaptations that slow sinking. They race their models and calculate sinking rates. They discuss the importance of these small sea...

The Plankton Project

For Teachers 4th - 6th
Students investigate the different types of Plankton and analyze the importance of plankton in the marine food chain. They research filter feeding and evaluate the basic principles of an experiment.

Temporary Zooplankton Mix and Match

For Students 4th - 5th
In this plankton worksheet, students draw a line between the larvae and the adult. Students write the name of each adult animal under the 8 drawings.
Lesson Planet

Connect the Species

For Teachers 4th
Fourth graders, in pairs, explore energy transfer and species interrelationships by viewing slides on a microscope. hey explore phytoplankton (producers) and zooplankton (consumers)

Make and Use a Plankton Net

For Teachers 7th - 10th
Students make simple plankton nets and use them to collect and identify common forms of plankton. They identify and interpret plankton, as seen under a microscope, whether there was more zooplankton or phytoplankton. Finally, students...
