Mountain Lions in Arizona Lesson 1: The Lion as a Predator - Agile as a Cat

Middle school zoologists compare their physical abilities to those of a mountain lion. They record jump height and distance. Next, they measure their peripheral vision and hearing. They discover that their abilities do not even begin to measure up! Learners then discuss why jumping ability, vision, and sound collection are vital adaptations to a mountain lion's survival. This beautifully prepared lesson plan provides everything you need to guide learners through an enlightening experience.

I was at a crossroads trying to think of a new… interesting… active way to introduce and teach the different types of economic systems. I turned to Lesson Planet and entered “Economic Systems” into the search tab and was inundated with resources and lesson plans and ideas… the kids loved the lesson I modified for them and still ask when we are going to do another lesson like that “Paper Airplane Company” one. Thanks Lesson Planet.
