Study of Place: Antarctic Exploration
Each two-week module in the Study of Place curriculum is framed by an historical event that makes a connection between the physical environment and human activity. The activities focus primarily on physical and earth science content, geography, and inquiry skills. Assessments and scoring rubrics, including a pre-assessment that can be used for both modules, are embedded in each module, providing opportunities for tracking student learning. The Antarctic Exploration module is framed by Sir Ernest
Busing for Integration vs. Neighborhood Schools
This lesson plan will introduce students to the political, social, and economic issues surrounding school desegregation using oral histories from those who experienced it firsthand. They will learn about the history of the "separate but equal" U.S. school system, the 1971 Swann case which forced Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) to integrate, and the recent decision to discontinue busing for racial integration in Charlotte-Mecklenburg. They will compare and contrast neighborhood schools with s
This webpage outlines the different types of weathering found on gravestones, possible mechanisms of weathering, methods for measuring weathering as well as some results from gravestone studies. Users can follow links to gravestone weathering, methods of measuring weathering, a bibliography of gravestone weathering papers and gravestone weathering data.
The Image Gallery: Rocks
This website offers an extensive, annotated list of photographs of rock types. Some of the photographs are of hand samples, others are of rocks in the field. Users can also follow links to image galleries of fossils, landforms, minerals, geologic features and processes, and geology and cultures.
This lesson begins with a table for the viewer to complete while the video is paused. Then, the instructor explains what should have been discovered through the completion of this table. Then, the instructor uses a variety of examples to explain how to simplify various types of radicals.

Light at the Bottom of the Deep, Dark Ocean?
This Ocean Explorer interactive, hands-on lesson plan (PDF) leads students on an exploration of deepwater adaptations by addressing the focus question: What types of adaptations enable deep-sea fishes to survive and collect food in the darkness of the deep ocean? In the activity, students search for Skittles in a dark room while wearing goggles covered in blue cellophane to simulate deepwater feeding. This lesson plan includes a reproducible student handout and links to reference resources.
Graphic Accounts - Analyzing Graphs in The New York Times
In this lesson, students learn about the estimated cost of the war in Iraq to the U.S. government in comparison to other hypothetical expenditures, in part by examining a bar graph. They then explore the use of different types of graphs in The New York Times.
Mojave National Preserve Kid's Web Page
Three of the four major North American deserts are found at Mojave National Preserve: the Mojave, Great Basin and Sonoran. Dozens of seeps and springs coupled with varied elevations and soil types create microhabitats that support a diversity of plant and animal life. Cactus gardens, relict plant communities of white fir and chaparral and the densest, largest Joshua tree forest are all found here.
