Note About Science Lesson Plans
  • The following lesson plans have been created so
    that they can be adapted to fit any time frame.
    The lesson plans can be used for one week or can
    be spread out over a several week period. The
    lesson plans are designed to be used during the
    traditional days of the Unit.

Lesson Plan 1 (continued)
  • Assessment
  • Each group will come up with their own set of
    solutions to the New York City mosquito problem.
    Each group will design and develop a brief
    PowerPoint presentation that will be presented to
    the class. Within the presentation the students
    will be graded on the following
  • 1. Clarity of their presentation.
  • 2. Are their solutions practical and
    applicable.

8
Lesson Plan 1 (continued)
  • Introduction
  • 1.) The first part of the lesson consists of a
    brainstorming activtiy in which the students will
    be divided up into groups of 4-6 and asked to
    generate ideas as to what the answer to the
    following questions are
  • 1. What are some different types of mosquitoes
    and problems associated with them?
  • 2. What types of habitats do mosquitoes live
    and thrive in?
  • 3. What are some different ways in which to
    control mosquitoes?

9
Lesson Plan 1 (continued)
  • Procedures
  • 1.) Next the students will be asked to perform
    research within their groups on the different
    types of mosquitoes, life cycles, diseases
    associated with mosquitoes, methods of control,
    and habitats of mosquitoes. (they will be asked
    to utilize the internet, magazines, journals,
    CD-ROMs, encyclopedias, etc. to find the
    information for their research).
  • 2.) The students will then be asked to determine
    what type(s) of mosquitoes were involved in the
    NYC case, disease(s) caused, and solutions to the
    problem.

10
Lesson Plan 1 (continued)
  • Closure
  • 1.) The final activity for this lesson will
    involve the students within their groups creating
    their own original solutions to the NYC case
    within the following criteria
  • 1. Their solutions have to be practical and
    useable.
  • 2. They cannot copy the solutions used in the
    actual case.
  • 2.) The groups will create a brief PowerPoint
    presentation, presenting their results to the
    class. The presentation must be clearly done and
    presented in a professional manner.

16
Lesson Plan 2 (continued)
  • Assessment
  • The students will perform a mosquito collection
    if possible in which they will have to give the
    common and scientific name of each mosquito along
    with the habitats they live in. If the collection
    is not able to be done then they will have to be
    able to identify the different types of
    mosquitoes through visual means (actual samples,
    pictures, etc.) The collection will be graded on
    the correctness of the information and visual
    clarity (is the collection easy to follow and are
    the words easy to read.) The students will also
    be asked to write a brief report that includes
    the different types of mosquitoes, major
    structures and functions, different stages of the
    life cycle, and what takes place during each
    stage.

17
Lesson Plan 2 (continued)
  • Introduction
  • 1.) The students will be asked to discuss what
    are some different types of mosquitoes they know
    of (they can use the information from the
    brainstorming activity in lesson 1).
  • 2.) After this the teacher will present some
    type of visual presentation (PowerPoint, video,
    slide show, etc.) and discuss with the class what
    the major types of mosquitoes are, their
    structures, and life cycles..

18
Lesson Plan 2 (continued)
  • Procedures
  • 1.) The students will either be asked to,
    depending on which activity is possible, perform
    a mosquito collection and identify common name,
    scientific name, habitat of each mosquito, and
    the identify the major structures or the students
    will be asked to perform the same tasks from
    samples provided for by the teacher.
  • 2.) The students will be asked to either perform
    a lab experiment that allows the students to
    observe the different stages of the mosquito life
    cycle or view a video/multi-media program that
    outlines the different stages of the mosquito
    life cycle. The class will then discuss what
    they have recorded/learned.

19
Lesson Plan 2 (continued)
  • Closure
  • 1.) The final activity for this lesson will
    consist of the students being asked to prepare a
    brief report about the different(major) types of
    mosquitoes, their major structures and their
    functions, the different stages of the life
    cycle, and what takes place during each stage.
    The students can utilize any resource at their
    disposal (internet, books, magazines, journals,
    multi-media programs, etc. to do the research for
    the paper) the report needs to include
    information gathered from their collections and
    experiments. The paper needs to be clearly
    written, the information needs to be accurate,
    and the points listed above need to be covered.

    of these has on the surrounding environment and
    population. The results will be discussed with
    the class.

27
Lesson Plan 3 (continued)
  • Procedures
  • 1.) The class will be involved in a discussion
    in which the teacher will present the class with
    different methods of control and engage the
    students in discussions about each one
    (effectiveness of each, environmental effects,
    human effects, etc.).
  • 2.) The groups will be asked to perform research
    on a method of control of their choice, utilizing
    multi-media software, the internet, journals and
    magazines, textbooks, videos, interviews with a
    professional about their topics (required), etc.
