Starts with a PowerPoint presentation that can be used for traditional notes and lecture style lesson or as a jumping off point for class discussion of eutrophication. Download includes both a teacher version with answers and a student version without. The student activity packet includes three different activities to reinforce content knowledge three ways. First, students put the steps of eutrophication in order and write a summary paragraph of the process in their own words. Then students cut and paste together a cartoon of eutrophication before the culminating project: a group model build. Minimal prep is required for these three student-centered activities.
The included teacher lesson plan and activity packet answer key saves you time and eases formative assessment.
Covers the basics of how eutrophication occurs as a result of excessive nitrogen and phosphorus runoff. Excellent follow-up to lessons about the nitrogen cycle or human impact on the environment.
Students may interact with the PowerPoint individually, in small groups, or as a whole class. Adaptable as teacher-lead activity using Smartboard or overhead, or as a student-centered independent project.
Afterward, check for understanding using the Eutrophication Activity Packet.
Students may self-assess using the included answer key or teacher may collect for a grade. The lesson concludes with a group modeling project, excellent for student engagement and for quickly gauging knowledge acquisition.
This activity is ideal for
--independent or small group work
--whole-class learning (on smartboard or overhead)
-- deeper knowledge of the Nitrogen Cycle and Human Impact on the Environment
