Brief overview of lesson
Space for page numbers for reference
In this plan, students are asked to complete a notes page while watching the video and the sub will go over the answers (answer key included).
In the follow up activity, students are given an informational text and asked to analyze the text (worksheet provided) and create a graphic organizer.
There are 6 informational texts in total. I have a version of this activity that uses learning stations and additional information and requirements as well.
The 6 informational text topics are:
•Gray wolves in Yellowstone •12 Invasive Species •Burmese Pythons in the Everglades •Brook Trout as an Indicator Species •Climate Change and its Impact on Cold Water Fish •Declining Numbers of Frogs and Toads (Indicator Species)
I have created a brief preview card with a QR code for digital use or you can access the article list via a link provided (link information is also provided in the sub notes).
When you return:
I would suggest discussing the articles and notes upon your return.
Following this lesson, students will be ready to evaluate and/or design solutions for some of the issues that the heath of our ecosystems are facing.
