In this activity students will work in teams to investigate the impact of an invasive species on native species, using the six classic steps for solving environmental problems. Teams will research a local invasive species problem, complete an experimental design plan, write clear procedures for experimentation, state expected results and conclusions, and work together to determine the course of action ...

In this activity, students will explore circulation cells in the vicinity of seamounts. They will be able to interpret data from a three-dimensional array of current monitors to infer an overall pattern of water circulation, hypothesize what effect an observed water circulation pattern might have on seamount fauna that reproduce by means of floating larvae, and describe the importance of measurements ...

In this activity, students will explore the fate of benthic invertebrate larvae in the vicinity of seamounts. They will review field data to evaluate a hypothesis about the influence of a water circulation cell on the retention of benthic invertebrate larvae, and describe some potential advantages and disadvantages to species whose larvae are retained. They will also be able to describe the consequences ... Full description.

In this activity, students will explore the influence of microorganisms on geochemical processes. They will describe how microbial metabolism may affect the dissolution of igneous rocks, define and explain the function of siderophores, describe at least two ways in which bacteria may utilize iron, and explain why iron availability may limit biological activity even though it is extremely abundant ...

This lesson focuses on the possible release of methane from methane hydrates to the atmosphere and the potential impact of these releases on global warming, particularly how they might be involved with the Cambrian explosion and the Paleocene extinction events. Students will use online resources to research these events and to learn what methane hydrates are and how they might contribute to global ... Full description.

In this activity students work in groups to design experiments to test the effects of cold on rate of diffusion, enzyme activity, nerve activity, dissolved oxygen, blood flow characteristics and lipid characteristics. After teacher approval, the group performs their experiment and reports their results to the rest of the class for class discussion. Students will: design a controlled experiment; record ...

In this activity, students will dissect a fish purchased from a fish market to study its external and internal anatomy. They will observe its gills, kidney, and blood through a microscope and take a variety of measurements of many of the internal organs. They will practice their observation skills by making accurate illustrations. These data and drawings will then be compared with some Antarctic fishes ... Full description.

In this activity, students will have the opportunity to witness the fragile nature of organisms with regard to temperature. These organisms include common bacteria, such as Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Students will understand the role of temperature in determining what kinds of organisms are found in unforgiving environments. As part of the activity, they will practice aseptic technique ...

In this activity, students will develop an experiment that will test the ability of bacteria to survive various temperature extremes. They will grow the bacteria in nutrient broth, which will be placed in different temperatures for at least 24 hours and then spread on nutrient agar plates and incubated at 37 degrees Celcius for an additional 24 hours. Students will: learn how to formulate and test ... Full description.
