This is a multi-session interactive lesson plan about animal adaptations for kindergarten through second grade students. The goal of this interactive digital lesson plan is to guide students through activities that help them understand how characteristics such as body covering, body parts, and behaviors help animals survive. These lesson plans also build cooperation and communication skills for students. There are additional resources provided for the teacher to use before or after using the HyperDoc. This Lesson Plan was created in partnership with the Birmingham Zoo.

Animal Alterations: How Do Animals Change Their Habitats?
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

Students will begin by describing how humans change their environment in order to provide for their needs. Students will watch a video clip that explains how several forest animals alter their habitats, and then explain how other animals might change their environment in order to survive. At the conclusion of the lesson, students will create a drawing that illustrates how an animal may alter their environment to provide for its needs. This lesson results from a collaboration between the Alabama State Department of Education and ASTA.

In this lesson, students will research a variety of animals, plants, and habitats from Alabama. After researching animals, plants, and habitats from Alabama, small groups of students will be assigned a habitat to create. After creating the habitat in small groups, the small groups of students will share their habitat with their classmates. This lesson results from the ALEX Resource Gap Project.

This is an inquiry-based lesson that allows the students to investigate how an animal's color affects its chances of survival in its environment. Students will explore evidence needed to explain the cause-and-effect relationship between an animal's coloring and its effect on the individual's ability to survive. This lesson results from a collaboration between the Alabama State Department of Education and ASTA.

Answering Text-Dependent Questions: Pages 4–5 of One Well: The Story of Water on Earth
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

In Work Time A, students participate in a Language Dive that guides them through the meaning of a sentence from One Well. The focus of this Language Dive is on the function of nouns (L.3.1a). Students then apply their understanding of the meaning and structure of this sentence when determining the main idea of the text and when determining the function of nouns in One Well and during the Mid-Unit 1 Assessment. Refer to the Tools page for additional information regarding a consistent Language Dive routine.
In Work Time B, students reread One Well to answer text-dependent questions, including questions about vocabulary (RI.3.1, RI.3.4, L.3.4).This is meant to help students gain a deeper understanding of the first two pages of the text and to use information gained from the illustrations to demonstrate understanding of the words (RI.3.7). Pay careful attention to this routine in order to apply it in subsequent lessons.
To increase student independence with reading and analyzing texts in Module 4, students dig in deeper to determine the main ideas and supporting details of pages of One Well in triads and pairs throughout the remainder of the unit, rather than through teacher-led close reads.
In the Closing, students contribute to the class KWEL chart--repeating the routine from Lesson 1. Refer to this lesson for more detail as necessary.
In this lesson, students focus on working to become effective learners with a characteristic of their choice.
Students practice their fluency by following along and reading silently as the teacher reads One Well aloud in Opening A.
The research reading that students complete for homework will help build both their vocabulary and knowledge pertaining to water. By participating in this volume of reading over a span of time, students will develop a wide base of knowledge about the world and the words that help describe and make sense of it

Applied Macro- and International Economics uses case studies to investigate the macroeconomic environment in which firms operate. The first half of the course develops the basic tools of macroeconomic management: monetary, fiscal, and exchange rate policy. The class discusses recent emerging market and financial crises by examining their causes and considering how best to address them and prevent them from recurring in the future. The second half evaluates different strategies of economic development. Topics covered in the second half of this course include growth, the role of debt and foreign aid, and the reliance on natural resources.

The numerical methods, formulation and parameterizations used in models of the circulation of the atmosphere and ocean will be described in detail. Widely used numerical methods will be the focus but we will also review emerging concepts and new methods. The numerics underlying a hierarchy of models will be discussed, ranging from simple GFD models to the high-end GCMs. In the context of ocean GCMs, we will describe parameterization of geostrophic eddies, mixing and the surface and bottom boundary layers. In the atmosphere, we will review parameterizations of convection and large scale condensation, the planetary boundary layer and radiative transfer.

Demonstrate the Bernoulli Principle using simple materials on a small or large scale. This resource includes two activities that allow learners to experience the Bernoulli Principle, in which an object is suspended in air by blowing down on it. Use this activity to explain how atomizers work and why windows are sometimes sucked out of their frames as two trains rush past each other.
