Environmental Mapping and Testing

Active Learning | Transformation Level

Subject: Science

Objectives

  • Students will use GPS units to map a boundary around the mitigation area.
  • Students will take pictures of way points.
  • Students will take temperatures of water.
  • Students will test the pH of water.
  • Students will test the soil.
  • Students will use magnification tool to observe collected samples.

Procedure

  • Students will take a field trip to property with a mitigation area.
  • Students will use GPS units to map a boundary around the mitigation area.
  • Students will photograph of the property.
  • Students will test the temperature and pH level of the water.
  • Students will test the soil.
  • Students will magnify collected samples.

Technology Present

  • GPS
  • Graphing calculator
  • Probes

Grade Level: 6-12

Note: The TIM is about teaching, not technology. The placement of videos on the TIM is based entirely on the teaching practices demonstrated in the lesson and not on the specific technology employed. Simple or even out-dated technology can be used at the higher levels of technology integration just as the latest or most complex technology can be used at lower levels.
