Balloon Powered Lego Car - The Crafty Mummy
This packet of templates will work for students to research animals of any kind on the internet either at home or at school. The pages other than the title page could easily be used for other topics as well. The pages can be broken up. I designed this one for my third grade ESL students to finish out the school year with something they enjoy doing...cruising the internet. It of course can be used anytime. Colored pages reproduce fine in black and white.
Animal Web Quest
This visual example of erosion would help students understand how human activities can affect the landscape. One bottle could represent an untouched forest, another could represent an area with houses built, and another bottle could show land cleared for farming. The students would be able to see how humans can negatively impact Earth's natural processes.
