Create a blog entry entitled, "Watery Earth Lesson 2.1 - How I Use Water." Using bullets, list all the ways you use water for:
Here is an example, but please don't copy from it!
Publish your post LIVE and look through others' posts. When you have read at least four other students' posts, answer these two questions at the end of your post above:
Click here to read the SRB pages 21-27 (stop after 27 please!).
Create a 2-Column Chart with the titles: "Man-Made Resources" and "Natural Resources."
- In each column, insert another 2-Column Chart.
- Find at least six photographs from Google Images that fit each category and drag them into each column. Make sure that you have the same number of images on both sides when you are done. You cannot search for "Natural Resources" or "Man-Made Resources" on Google; you must search for the items you want to put on each side individually.
- Link the photo back to its source (to give credit). Do NOT turn on Lightbox.
- Type a caption that describes the picture.
At the bottom of your blog post:
- Write a definition for Man-Made Resources (in your own words) and Natural Resources.
- Why is "water" considered a Natural Resource?
- List three or more Natural Resources that you use daily.
Assign each student an organism to research by having them sign up on our Google Spreadsheet (pull sticks).
Create a blog entry entitled, "Watery Earth Lesson 2.3 - How _______ Use Water." Put your organism's name in the blank.
Using the bulleted lists from Session 1's activity to:
- Write a paragraph or more that describes how your organism needs and uses water. Write in expository style writing (just like our Human Body Research Paper). Here is an example.
- Include at least one photo from Google Images that shows your organism. (Link to the source & Type in a caption.)
Below your paragraph, create a 3-column chart with the following titles: "Humans," "________" (Your Organism's Name in the blank), and "Both."
List at least three ways your organism uses or needs water that is different from humans in the proper columns.
List at least three ways your organism and humans use or need water similarly in the "Both" column.
Insert a "Title" element above the columns entitled, "How Humans and __________ Use and Need Water."
As a final reflection, answer the following questions under your 3-Column Chart:
1. Why is water considered a "Natural Resource?"
2. How is water essential (required) to our survival and the survival of all living things?
Create a blog entry entitled, "Watery Earth Lesson 2.4 - How ________ Use Water" (using the Type of Scientist in the blank).
Write about how one type of scientist uses water at work. Do this in paragraph form (Expository style). Here is an example.
