This activity is about the impact of climate change in aquatic ecosystems. Learners will build two aquatic habitats using soda bottles and other materials and simulate climate change conditions in one of the habitats. After making daily qualitative... (View More)

This activity is about the role of plants as carbon sinks. Using atom signs made of construction paper, a blanket and other materials, learners will visualize the role of plants in storing carbon and discuss what may lead to its release. This the... (View More)

This resource includes five lessons related to the habitat and life cycle of the diamondback terrapin and human influence on them. Learners will participate in a series of dramatic play modeling activities that simulate the coastline and marsh... (View More)

This activity is about underwater mapping and its importance in deep-water exploration. Working in groups, learners will use bathymetric survey data to create a two-dimensional topographic map. They will use that map to create a three-dimensional... (View More)

This activity is about the relationship between habitat and wildlife. After reading and discussing a story on prairie potholes and waterfowl, learners will use hula hoops, packing peanuts and other materials to simulate prairie pothole destruction... (View More)

This activity is about habitat loss. Using hula hoops, traffic cones, rope and other materials, students will play a version of the game "tag" where they will simulate the impact of development on wildlife populations. The students will be able to... (View More)

This activity is about the process of transecting, by which researchers divide an area into smaller plots that can be investigated more closely for biotic and abiotic samples. Learners will be able to determine the presence of wildlife by recording... (View More)

In this activity, students identify habitats in Arizona, define and illustrate a food web in a kinesthetic exercise, and explain the importance of biodiversity in a writing assignment. Required materials include a ball of yarn or string. The... (View More)

Students will be introduced to different species of macroinvertebrates. They will hypothesize why each insect looks the way it does. Then students will make observations of macroinvertebrates in an aquarium in their classroom. For an optional... (View More)

This is a lesson where learners engage in a radiating heat activity and an activity that measures temperature in models with and without greenhouse gases. Learners will draw conclusions about the effect of greenhouse gases on temperature and on... (View More)
