Overview:

North Carolina experienced major flooding in 2018 due to Hurricane Florence. As a result there has been a huge increase in the amount and size of mosquitoes in our state. Mosquitoes are known for carrying diseases like Zika, Malaria, and West Nile. We must do something to help our community. Bats can be an answer to this problem. A single bat can eat up to 1,200 mosquito sized insects every hour and each bat can usually eat up to 6,000 to 8,000 insects per night. To help alleviate a massive amount of mosquitoes in our community we will build bat boxes and share them with our community.

Overview:

This Super Lesson utilizes Project Based Learning to assist learners with designing, building, and testing flying contraptions as an introduction to Engineering. The goal of this project is to engage students in collaborative team work and to introduce students to the Science and Engineering Practices: Asking Questions and Defining Problems, Planning and Carrying Out Investigations, and Constructing Explanations and Designing Solutions.

We have offered this Super Lesson as an 8-week elective course, developing and strengthening student interest in applied Math and Science topics. It could also be offered within upper elementary or middle school Science and Math courses. In addition, each week’s topic could be used as a stand alone mini-lesson if time is limited. We have worked to include multiple options within this unit to make it accessible to both general education and special education programs, including recommendations for modifications and extensions.

Overview:

NOTE: This project was designed for an AVID course. The platform did not allow that selection, which is why it is tied to Career Development. Open the resource to see the specific AVID standards taught and assessed through the unit.

Since students were little they have been asked, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Too often the answers are limited to the careers of parents or the professionals with whom the student has had some kind of contact: in essence, the standard response of doctor, lawyer, police officer.

This project was designed to assist students in identifying skill sets and interests and then understanding their relationships to careers and career clusters.

Using technology, students take interest surveys and explore both broad career clusters and specific careers. From their research they create career infographics for presentation and display within the school.
