K–67 educators can access an archive of webinars exploring climate change and its impacts. Produced by scientists and educators from NOAA’s Planet Stewards Education Project, each 95-minute webinar addresses a different aspect of climate change. The webinars can help teachers stay informed on climate change issues, revitalize K–67 Earth science lessons, and learn how to develop and execute a climate action project with students. Titles include The Connectedness in the Climate System Sleuthing the Climate Past, Projecting the Climate Future Spanning Time and Spatial Scales: Modeling the Planet’s Climate Using Simple Models in Climate Change Education and Making Climate Change Communication Stick.
Tired of the same old boring get-to-know-you games, then the Name Game is for you! It is a competition between two teams to see who can identify the other team’s person first. And the only prop needed is a big thick Tell Me More!
On the first Earth Day, Americans nationwide joined in protests over the degradation of the country’s air and water, launching an environmental movement that continues today. Popular music began to reflect the same concerns. This influence was particularly apparent in the work of singer-songwriters who used their music to make statements about protecting the land, such as Joni Mitchell, who called attention to the insecticide DDT in her song "Big Yellow Taxi." Others expressed a longing for a closer connection to the land. In this lesson, students in grades 6-67 will analyze these songs and examine the ways in which they reflect a growing attention to environmental issues in American culture.
In this lesson for grades 9–67, students learn to read fuel economy and environment labels, then apply their understanding to compare and contrast the labels for various vehicles and fuel types. The lesson plan includes background information, procedures, teacher and student worksheets, discussion questions, assessment, extensions, and related links. The lesson can help students become more informed citizens and helps teach them real-world skills and understandings.
NOAA''s Ocean Explorer Education Theme Pages present ocean science topics like Archaeology, the Arctic, Bioluminescence, Cold Seeps, Deep-Sea Corals, Seamounts, and Vents and Volcanoes. Each page has links to essays, lessons, multimedia interactive activities, career information, and associated past expeditions. The Bioluminescence theme page,for example, features essays exploring topics like how living organisms produce light and the visual systems of deep-sea creatures, as well as lessons targeting middle and high school levels on topics like light, color, and camouflage in deep-ocean organismsand adaptations of deep-sea creatures. You’ll also find videos and images of bioluminescent organisms and a video profile of a scientist who studies bioluminescence.
“We have seen a significant amount of growth in people frustrated with banks. Banks use people to make money. We use money to help people. It’s just a different perspective.”
Make climate change personally relevant and understandable to high school students (grades 9–67) through the lessons and activities in the University of South Florida’sCHANGE curriculum. The futuristic, place-based curriculum addresses global climate change and its potential long-term effects through narrative stories, role play, and simulations based on scientific data. The curriculum examines the effects of climate change on marine science environments unit titles include Ocean Exploration MarineGeology Marine Chemistry Estuaries Populations: Producers Populations: Invertebrates Populations: Vertebrates and Capstone: Apollo Beach.
Use these activities to help middle level students (grades 6 and 7) learn about graphs and the concepts graphs convey in mathematics, science, and other subjects. For example, click on the Curriculum tab, then Graph Literacy, to find lesson plans that can be done in one period or less and exploring topics such as equivalent graphs, interpolation, and independent and dependent variables. Teachers can also create and share graphing-related activities of their own (click on the Authoring tab). Click on the Research Focus tab to learn the rationale behind the SmartGraphs project and find data/ evidence indicating a project’s effectiveness in improving students’ graphing skills.
