In this activity students will examine sections of cut trees. They will observe and describe the difference between early and late wood, make a guess about the age of the tree, determine the actual age by counting the rings, and identify the rings that represent the years the student, the student's parents, and the student's grandparents were born, or years of historical importance. In addition, students ... Full description.

In the three-dimensional ocean, some creatures live on the sea floor, but many live and move about in the water column. Having a body form that is hard to see or detect helps many ocean dwellers avoid being eaten by hungry predators. However, many predators have evolved some of the same adaptations which help them approach their prey without being seen. During this activity students will learn that ... Full description.

During this activity students will learn that the tiny animals and plants of the ocean's plankton are the basis of ocean food chains and that planktonic plants are called phytoplankton while planktonic animals are known as zooplankton. They will also discover that these plants, like plants on land, use chlorophyll to capture the energy of the sun to make food and release oxygen in the process known ... Full description.

This hands-on activity simulates the process of population fluctuation. Students will learn the terms limiting factors and carrying capacity. Rather than memorize these terms, the students can see the terms come to life in this animated penguin activity. The results clearly show how populations are affected by many things -- one of them being food availability. This particular activity focuses on ... Full description.
