Drawing from Description

Drawing from Description

Changing Landscape asks students to analyze “repeat photographs” (taken from the same vantage point at different times) of Alaska glaciers to observe the effects of retreating glaciers on the landscape.

Aquatic Puzzles

Aquatic Puzzles

Children will assemble simple puzzles to learn more about aquatic animals and their life cycles. How do we know living and nonliving things are in the water around us? What do they look like when they are growing?

Globe Toss

Globe Toss

In this activity, students begin their discovery of aquatic environments, and start to notice that water is all around them, in their neighborhoods, backyards, oceans, rivers, ponds, and creeks. They take a first look at “Our Big Blue Planet” with a globe game.

Water Detectives

Water Detectives

In this activity, students begin their discovery of aquatic environments, and start to notice that water is all around them, in their neighborhoods, backyards, oceans, rivers, ponds, and creeks. They act as outdoor “Water Detectives” to explore and map water on a walk near their school.

Field Trip to a Local Habitat

Field Trip to a Local Habitat

Children go outdoors to explore a local habitat. They see, feel, and think about the living and nonliving things in the water. Science notebooks are used to gather information about what they find. Students use their background knowledge from prior classroom experiences, the initial field trip, classroom investigations, and other observations to notice and observe the living and nonliving things in their environment. Students have plenty of time to explore and discover before being asked to write and draw in their science notebooks.
