    Worksheet
    This is a great twist on an interesting fact that wood frogs can freeze in the winter and thaw in the spring to resume living. Students evaluate two claims and evidence statements and then write their own. Students then share out and evaluate each others as a class. This worksheet helps students to build their claim evidence and reasoning skills.

    The Science of Ape Intelligence
    Lesson Plan
    Video
     
    Multimedia
    Student will watch the video about the science of ape intelligence and, after watching, discuss answers to questions related to similarities and differences between intelligence in apes and in humans. Students are first organized into teams to track experiments and field observations. Students then watch the video (online or by DVD) and take notes on their topic. Student next will meet in their groups and fill in the two worksheets. Lastly, student will have a class discussion about the topics discussed.

  • Lab Experiment
    The Earthworm and Soil Fertilization
    Lesson Plan
     
    Experiment
    Students observe how an earthworm influences soil structure (The ingestion of soil; the partial breakdown of organic matter; the mixture of these factions, and the ejection of this material as surface or sub-surface casts; the formation of water-stable aggregates; the aeration of the soil, and the improvement of its water-holding capacity; the addition of lime to the soil.). Students should develop an appreciation for earthworms.
