Why Climb?

Learners read an article about the experience of some experienced climbers on Mt. Hood in Oregon. As a class, they brainstorm a list of the reasons whey people choose to participate in high-risk sports. In groups, they determine if a test should be given to climbers before climbing mountains. They role-play the role of advisors to the search and rescue team to advise them on whether the search should continue.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
