This National Geographic lesson plan explores bioluminescent creatures and the underwater world in which they live. Using shoeboxes and black paint, students are directed to build a deep-sea model and inhabit it with fish made out of black construction paper. Students then use the model to describe how organisms use bioluminescence and learn about its use as camouflage. In addition to a detailed protocol, the lesson plan includes suggestions for assessments and links to additional information.

Learners explore the relationship between energy consumption, population, and carbon emissions in the countries of the Americas. As a large group, learners analyze maps projected on a screen to collect data. Then they work in small groups or individually to analyze the data and draw conclusions. Finally, learners create a large, wall-sized Americas Mega Map to display their findings.

This National Geographic lesson plan explores bioluminescent organisms in the sea. In this activity, students explore the benefits of bioluminescence by conducting a simulation and viewing pictures of bioluminescent marine animals on the Web. The conclusion of the activity entails students pretending to be deep-sea divers and writing journal entries about their impressions of a bioluminescent animal they have encountered. In addition to a detailed procedure, the lesson plan includes suggestions for assessment, ideas for extending the lesson, and links to related websites.

During a storm, particles within a cloud collide. Rising ice crystals and falling hail create friction that frees electrons. Positive charges rise to the top of the cloud while negative charges sink to the bottom. This electrical imbalance is corrected only when a current of lightning passes between the two charges. This bolt streaks towards the earth and the flash of lightning streaks upwards at about 200,000,000 miles per hour.
