Lesson Titlesort ascending Lesson Summary Subject Grade Level
Microbial Fuel Cell These activities will help you walk your students through two major principles involved in fuel cell creation. They will learn what a battery is and how energy can come from in living organisms. Bioenergy, Chemistry, Energy High School (9-12)
Mice and Munchies In this lesson students will explore interrelationships and adaptations between prey and predators. Students will also determine features of competition between animals in aa habitat. Biology, Ecology Elementary (4-5)
Methods of Food Modification This activity introduces students to the multiple ways foods have been or can be modified, either naturally or with human intervention. Bioenergy Middle School (6-8), High School (9-12)
Marine Osteoporosis In this lesson students learn about the effects of acidic oceans on certain marine organisms and the causes of ocean acidification. Biology, Climate Change, Ecology, Marine Elementary (4-5)
Making A Mini-landslide Students explore how landslide severity depends on materials (sand, gravel, lava rock), slope steepness and water content. Geology Elementary (4-5)
Magnificent Macroinvertebrates In this lesson students will learn about macroinvertebrates by working in teams to design and build model organism that demonstrate adaptations needed to survive relative to conditions of the stream they will live in. Biology, Ecology Elementary (4-5)
Macro Mayhem In this lesson students to play an exciting game to help them understand how pollution impacts the biodiversity of macroinvertebrates found in a stream ecosystem. Biology, Ecology Elementary (4-5)
Macro Feeding Frenzie In this lesson students will be introduced to feeding adaptations found in aquatic macroinvertebrates. After a short introduction, students will play a game and do an activity to learn more about the functional feeding groups. Biology, Ecology Elementary (4-5)
