    Description

    When you need enrichment for early finishers or emergency lesson plans, use standards based lessons that build critical thinking and scientific literacy skills without taking your curriculum off the rails.

    Each of these 8 lesson plans are designed to take 1 day to complete and are intended for grades 5-8. They are independent of curriculum but still address NGSS skills. Each lesson contains a 2 page informational text reading and a 1 or 2 page worksheet with analysis questions probing higher order thinking skills.

    Lesson 1 - Artificial Sweeteners - Compare sugar and artificial sweeteners and compare the benefits and dangers of both

    Lesson 2 - Killer Asteroids - What evidence is there of impacts on earth? Are there asteroids that might hit the Earth and what do we do about them?

    Lesson 3 - DNA Test Kits - How accurate are the geneology test kits?

    Lesson 4 - GMOs - Is it safe to consume genetically modified foods?

    Lesson 5 - Groundhog Day - Where did the tradition start? How accurate is the groundhog?

    Lesson 6 - Strange Stuff on Mars - Learn about the Face on Mars, the Martian Channels, and the Martian meteorite with fossilized bacteria.

    Lesson 7 - Vaping - How do the health risks of vaping compare to smoking cigarettes?
