In this classroom activity, middle school students examine the wide-ranging sizes of dinosaurs. The activity opens with background information about the enormous range of dinosaur sizes and a classroom discussion in which students describe the size of some of the dinosaurs they know. Then, working from gridded drawings which are provided, students create either a life-size drawing of a Tyrannosaurus ... Full description.

This three part activity has students set up experiments to help them better understand the atmospheric portion of the carbon cycle. From this activity, they will be able to explain the concept of sources and sinks as they relate to carbon dioxide, the use of indicator solution bromothymol blue (BTB) to reveal the presence of carbon dioxide, and the qualitative differences between animal and fossil ...

This site presents an account of a research cruise to investigate how the food webs in different oceanic habitats vary. The scientists wanted to see ocean life in its natural environment and conduct experiments that would not be possible in the laboratory. They looked specifically at three types of ocean habitat: the open ocean, the continental shelf, and an upwelling area. The researchers were hoping ... Full description.

In this lesson students will investigate sampling strategies for biological communities in the ocean to see how well biological samples represent the actual communities from which they are taken. As a result of this activity, they will be able to identify the three realms of the Arctic Ocean and describe the relationships between these realms. They will also learn the concepts of sampling at intervals ... Full description.

This resource explains a number of critical functions performed by wetlands. Students will discover that wetlands moderate impacts from flooding, control erosion, purify water, and provide habitat for fish and wildlife. They also provide a unique natural environment for people to enjoy outdoor recreation activities. It is part of a module that aims to help students get to know the complexities of ...

This resource will help students to locate and identify wetlands in their local area. It suggests using student-based research and contacting local officials. Another suggestion is for students to just look around or to use maps. This is part of a module that aims to help students get to know the complexities of wetlands, discover wildlife, enjoy the experience of being outdoors, and learn how necessary ... Full description.

In this activity students will become familiar with oceanography terms by writing an oceanography horror story. Terms include sea floor features, marine organisms, oceanographic sampling, and creative writing. Students can use their imaginations to good advantage in this activity, but they must get the facts right! For example, they can change one characteristic of an organism, such as increasing ...

This activity can be used as an introduction to the world of aquatic organisms or as an investigation into ways of assessing diversity. Most of the life forms in fresh and salt water are microscopic, or at least small enough to benefit from being magnified for observation. In this activity students use a simple method to collect living microorganisms from natural and/or artificial environments and ... Full description.
