Great Winged Adventure by Joanna VanAusdeln and Bianca Davidson
Learn about birds! Students will learn about the aerodynamics of flight
and the defining characteristics of birds! This unit integrates the math,
science, and reading together. A total of six separate activities, use
one or use them all!
it Grow! by Karen Tripepi
An introductory lesson, intended to"kick off' a larger study of plants
and plant growth. In this lesson, students explore the basic requirements
for plant growth through a series of experimental activities. They learn
about the basic elements needed for plant-life to survive. A great introduction
to the process of photosynthesis.
from the Past by Mansour Sheibany and Pamela Howard
Students investigate the different characteristics of dinosaurs! Four
separate lesson plans with bibliography and "dinosaur definitions"
included. A favorite topic for early elementary!
Four Seasons by Jenna Walker
How can it be summer here and winter in Australia? Lessons include investigating
rotational forces and how rotational forces and location signify a change
in our seasons.
Murals by Rachael Johnson
Through information and exploration of the ocean and its inhabitants,
students will build a foundation of knowledge about oceanic properties
including concepts on water pressure and mapping of the ocean floor! A
fun and exciting unit!
Body Parts by Deborah Crabtree
Students investigate sharks and in the process learn shark anatomy. This
lesson plan includes great links about sharks!
Whales by Ana Reinhardt
Explore the ocean and learn about the anatomy of Humpback whales. Make
your own whale! Students will learn correct terminology of whale anatomy
in this lesson designed for early elementary.
Around Us by Aimee Traver
Lessons to complement your "Insect Units." Go on an insect
safari or cybersurf through some great insect websites! These lessons
are packed full of great ideas.
Heart by Candace Mendenhall
An Internet Adventure! Learn how the heart works, facts about the heart,
and ways to keep your heart healthy! Included in this lesson is taking
a virtual tour of the heart!
& Perimeter by Ronda Barnes
Excellent activities to facilitate students' learning about area and perimeter,
and the distinction between the two concepts! Includes four activities
to be used individually or as a whole unit on area and perimeter.
Buoyancy by Jamie Pine
Will it float? This lesson would be a great addition to a Sink or Float
unit or a Roald Dahl unit. Investigate the properties of buoyancy.
will the Couch Fit? by Jessica Nearings
Explore area, how to calculate it and meaningful uses of the formula.This
lesson includes three separate activities to reinforce how area is used.
Healthy Heart is a Happy Heart by Dianna Kathleen Adamski
Students will enter the wonderful world of the heart to study and discover
facts relating to the heart through the use of online technology.
In this online tour of the heart students will learn how to ensure a healthy
heart and how to prevent heart disease.
Data by Stephanie Jensen and Tia Taruscio
Edible Math! This lesson is designed to introduce students to pictographs,
bar graphs, and tables. They will create their own graphs and tables,
as well as interpret and make inferences from the data shown. The students
will determine when and where graphs and tables are most useful.
by Jennifer Berget
This lesson is intended to teach students about the purpose and process
of archeology, as well as demonstrate how it applies to their own lives,
through a simulated archeological dig.
of the Lawn Project by Kirk Brower
One of the necessary elements of algebra is area. This lesson will introduce
a brief series of practical problem solving skills related to area. These
lessons are designed to assess students' abilities to compute area calculations
in meaningful and practical methods. Great lessons to make math
come alive for junior high students!
and Ponds by Stacy Becker
These lessons will focus on lakes and ponds and the role they play in
maintaining habitats for humans and wildlife. Students will learn about
the various ecosystems that are sustained within lakes and ponds and how
their individual behaviors can effect the overall health of these important
water systems. Students will extend their understanding of lakes and ponds
through learning about career opportunities, learning how to become good
stewards of their waterways, and respecting the importance of lakes and
ponds in their daily lives. There are a total of three lessons in this
unit with lots of ideas on extending the learning to all parts of the
Science of Changing Seasons by Jay D. Dunn
During this lesson students are first presented with simple observations
about seasonal change. They are then given time to ponder the mechanisms
that drive these changes. Later, they will perform experiments that show
what causes the earth to heat differently during different seasons. Students
will be asked to analyze the results of these experiments and apply them
to what they know from their daily observations.
-12 Lesson Plans
Price by Heidi Ainsworth
Students will learn the effects of population growth as they participate
in this comprehensive unit which illustrates what happens when exponential
growth is limited by finite resources. Students will investigate their
own community's environmental quality and how they can become pro-active
elements of change for the environment.
A Modern Day Epidemic by Michelle Roland
Students will learn about Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome(AIDS);
the physiological effects of HIV on the immune system and the epidemic
proportions of this disease through online and offline activities.
