Activity #1: Should We Build On the Estuary?
Read the Fine Print
Rating
4.0 stars
Overview:

In this activity, students will work in collaborative groups to develop an advertisement for a political candidate in support of one side of an issue - should we build low-cost housing on part of the land presently occupied by an estuary? Each group will decide which side they want to support - either for or against building the housing - and write an ad that will be run in a local paper, or that will be viewed on local TV, to support their argument.

Activity #2: Determine Soil Particle Size
Read the Fine Print
Rating
2.0 stars
Overview:

In this lesson, students determine the particle size and composition of a sample of soil. Soil composition determines many characteristics of soils, such as infiltration rates (the rate at which water moves into a soil), percolation rates (how fast water moves through the soil), settling rates (how fast sediments sink to the bottom of a body of water), oxygen content, and the ability of the soil to support plant and animal life.

0.0 stars
Overview:

In this lesson, students create a visual representation of a habitat. Students should be able to explain the biotic and abiotic factors in their habitat, how those factors affect the organisms they are displaying in their habitat, the flow of energy through their habitat, and the soil and water conditions in their habitat.
