The Integration of Science and Math Through Ecosystems

Students use the disciplines of math and science to examine ecosystems. In groups, they calculate the amount of supplies they would need to live in the classroom for one day, a week and a year. Using this information, they apply it to situations facing the world. To end the lesson, they examine the amount of paper wasted in their class and how to use it more efficiently.

As a teacher in training I get fabulous ideas for lesson plans. Lesson Planet helps me to consider how to write effective learning targets.
