This Hyperdoc activity helps students understand the role of decomposers in the food chain and in the creation of soil. Students will create their own illustration modeling this process. Students will use the Hyperdoc to watch, view, and interact with information regarding these important decomposers. The students will watch an educational video clip about decomposers and answer a reflection question about their role in the food chain. Students will read and study an infographic on decomposers and draw conclusions about their role in plant growth. Students will explore an interactive website to learn how different composers affect soil creation and create a model of this process. This lesson aligns with 5th grade Alabama Science Course of Study.
This activity was created as a result of the DLCS COS Resource Development Summit.
This lesson gives students the opportunity to explore volcanoes and their impact on our planet. Students will take a virtual field trip of a dormant volcano and answer research questions about its formation and its after-effects. Next, students will discover which volcanoes in the United States are currently active. Finally, students will use an interactive map activity to explore famous eruptions from around the world. They will be given clues about the date and consequences of the eruption. Once they locate the volcano, they will place a virtual pin in its location on the world map. This lesson aligns with 6th grade Alabama Science Course of Study.
