2-Day Investigation of Soil Samples
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

This description of this activity is a 2-day lesson: Day 1, Field Lab, Day 2, and Classroom Investigation.
In this field lab, children working in groups will collect 3 samples of soil from different locations. Each sample will be placed in a different Ziploc bag, the groups will label the bags and record in their notebooks the location of each sample, including 5 observations about the area near the location the sample was taken from. They will need to make a plan on how to record and label the bags and locations so when we return to the classroom they will have a system for knowing the location. Individually, each student will also include in his/her notebook a question about each area or the soil collected. Groups will discuss own observation/questions. Each group will share 2 observations they made and 1 question they are wondering. The groups will bring their soil samples back to the classroom. Once back in the classroom, the students will work to create a data recording system and develop an investigable question about the soil. The students will also have available other sample soils provided by the teacher. Students will use the materials and observe the soils and record their findings. The groups would share their data and create a class chart of the information. Ask: What can we notice from this information? What questions do you have about the information?

The Roadmap is a remix of Michigan Open Book, MC3 and GIANTS all in one place. This foundational lesson introduces students to historical reasoning through the analysis of primary sources, such as historical maps and photographs. They examine how historians are detectives of the past and use evidence from primary and secondary sources. Students then explore the chronology of the settlement of a village in Michigan and identify the causes and effects of the founding of the community.

4 Fun Literacy Activities with Google Docs
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

Google Docs is a great word processor, but is much more than just that. Although we can certainly use it to type up a report, take notes, or write a story, we can also get creative with the features and functions built into the program to make some fun learning activities.

Recently I did a video training webinar where I took a look at four creative ways to use regular Google Docs features in new fun ways to practice and develop literacy skills. These include:

The highlighting tool for the activity "Improve Reading Comprehension with Google Docs Black Out"

The special characters tool for the activity "Emoji Learning Activities with Google Docs"

The word count tool for the activity "Have Students Write Better by Writing Less with Google Docs"

The header tool and hyperlink tool for the activity "Choose Your Own Adventure Stories with Google Docs"

See below for the full 1-hour training video, as well as resources, ideas, and templates for each of the four activities.

7.3 Metabolic Reactions
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This unit on metabolic reactions in the human body starts out with students exploring a real case study of a middle-school girl named M’Kenna, who reported some alarming symptoms to her doctor. Her symptoms included an inability to concentrate, headaches, stomach issues when she eats, and a lack of energy for everyday activities and sports that she used to play regularly. She also reported noticeable weight loss over the past few months, in spite of consuming what appeared to be a healthy diet. Her case sparks questions and ideas for investigations around trying to figure out which pathways and processes in M’Kenna’s body might be functioning differently than a healthy system and why.

Students investigate data specific to M’Kenna’s case in the form of doctor’s notes, endoscopy images and reports, growth charts, and micrographs. They also draw from their results from laboratory experiments on the chemical changes involving the processing of food and from digital interactives to explore how food is transported, transformed, stored, and used across different body systems in all people. Through this work of figuring out what is causing M’Kenna’s symptoms, the class discovers what happens to the food we eat after it enters our bodies and how M’Kenna’s different symptoms are connected.
