This is a lesson about the phenomenon of ice and about scientific inquiry. Learners will ask scientific questions about ice, will delve into the nature of science, embark upon scientific inquiry, and will practice scientific enterprise. Activities include thinking and acting like scientists and keeping scientific journals. Also includes an activity called "Act Out the Science" - a whole group participatory activity in which students participate as characters acting out the parts of a story. An optional small group version is included in which students act out their own stories. This is the introductory lesson for Exploring Ice in the Solar System. Less

Sometimes the topic of poetry is not received with enthusiasm by a classroom of high school students. What has worked for me in the past is to have a set of simple questions in regards to poetry itself, answered by my students (the 5 w's? + how?). There are no wrong answers because poetry means different things to different people. After the answers to the questions have been written on the board ( or butcher paper) and explored, I present a bilingual poem that includes everyday things ( such as bread). I have used Roque Dalton's "Como tu," "Like you," in the past. Less

Students observe live insects and examine insects depicted in a seventeenth-century drawing. They identify the three characteristics of an adult insect: a three-part body (head, thorax, and abdomen), six legs, and antennae. They collect and draw live insects, incorporating a variety of shapes and lines. Less

This activity is a field investigation or bio-blitz where students are collecting as many different types of insects as they can. Back in the lab, they will record their findings, sort and classify the insects found. This will lead into a class discussion on biodiversity and the importance of insects and their benefits all living things. Less

This resource was completed on a general lesson plan template, but also includes the 5E lesson model. The lesson allows for students to use Reading, Writing, Science and some Math skills. It is an interactive lesson that includes an outdoor exploration, if you do not have the ability of taking your students outdoors you can complete the lesson by having an ant farm in the classroom available for student observations (we have an ant habitat from Steve Spangler Science that includes space aged gel allowing students to get a close up look at the ants and their tunneling).

The Insects Module provides experiences that heighten students' awareness of the diversity of animal forms. They come to know firsthand the life sequences of a number of insects. In each investigation an insect is introduced, and students observe structures and behaviors, discuss their findings, and ask questions. Students observe life cycles of insects and compare the stages of metamorphosis exhibited by each species. Link to archived site: http://archive.fossweb.com/modulesK-2/Insects/index.html Less

In the 1830s, George Catlin (1796–1872) packed his paintbrushes and trekked through remote Indian country in the Great Plains. Committed to documenting traditional Native culture, he visited more than 140 tribes and painted more than 325 portraits and 200 scenes of American Indian life. Catlin's prolific works, both his art and his writings, illustrate Indian cultures on the precipice of radical change—change that would come with U.S. expansion into tribal territories. In this lesson, students will be asked to examine Catlin's life and to determine how various decisions he made affected its outcome. Students will be asked to interpret, elaborate on, and reenact events occurring in Catlin's lifetime by writing, drawing, and role-playing. Less

In this activity (on pages 34-39), learners make a fairly detailed model of DNA using licorice and gumdrops. The sugar and phosphate backbone of DNA is represented by alternating red and black licorice, and the base pairs are represented by gumdrops arranged so that gumdrop colors are paired. After a pair of learners have made a DNA section, they find another team and link them up to make a model of a gene. They then split the model and "copy" it using the base pair rules from earlier, comparing their copy to the original to see if there are any differences (mutations). Less

Developed for first grade. Primary Biological Content Area Covered:; Students will learn about the different parts of an apple.; Students will learn the different varieties of apples.; Students will learn why apples are good for their health.; Students will learn how apples fit into the food pyramid, which will lead to further discussion on healthy eating.Biology In Elementary Schools is a Saint Michael's College student project. The teaching ideas on this page have been found, refined, and developed by students in a college-level course on the teaching of biology at the elementary level. Unless otherwise noted, the lesson plans have been tried at least once by students from our partner schools. This wiki has been established to share ideas about teaching biology in elementary schools. The motivation behind the creation of this page is twofold: 1. to provide an outlet for the teaching ideas of a group of college educators participating in a workshop-style course; 2. to provide a space where anyone else interested in this topic can place their ideas.
