This lesson is designed to follow the Intermediate SAEs:The Next Step. The objective is to continue to move students through the research and development of their Foundational Career SAE. The students will continue to work on their Foundational SAE project based on their career interest, but research topics at the advanced level. The teacher may choose to only use the Foundational SAE project or they can also include an immersion SAE project that students keep track of their time, income and expenses over the course of the class. The students will participate in weekly assignments for their Foundational SAE and if they are completing an immersion SAE they will keep track of their hours each week. Starting SAE projects in the classroom should be simple for the teacher and students. Minimum expectations that can still produce success for all students would be tracking 1-hour of SAE time per week, exploring one career topic per week, and recording one financial entry per month. A final report or project at the end of the class would also be a minimum expectation for all students.

Each student creates a poster exhibiting their career choices from kindergarten through high school or their adult life depending on where they are in their career planning.  The students identify the career clusters and pathways that best fit their career choices across their timeline or pathway.  The students become familiar with the career clusters and pathways.  They also learn about new career opportunities that fall under their chosen cluster or pathway.  The students share their poster with the class, which leads to a discussion of how our career choices from 4th grade on don't really change career cluster, but they do change pathways within the cluster.  The students compare their career pathway poster with their "Me" poster (lesson available in Wise Learn, search Me Poster) they made previously to determine the characteristics they have or skills they may need to develop for their future career.

To help the students self analyze their strenghts and weaknesses I have them complete a "Me" poster.  The poster is folded intor 4 quadrants with a diamond in the middle.  The students fill in each quadrant answering why, what, how and what if.  This really gets them thinking about why they are the way they are.  They decorate their posters and then they identify three employability skills that they think they have fully developed and can demonstrate at work.  The students share their posters and then apply their self awareness to their career interest.

Weddell seal project researchers are investigating whether Weddell seal pups that spend more time in the water learning to swim with their mothers have a higher probability of surviving to return and have pups of their own. Weddell moms spend a lot of time with their pups coaxing them into the cold Antarctic water and helping their pups get in and out of the water as they learn to swim. During this time, Weddell pups are also nursing and gaining substantial weight from their mothers' rich milk before they are weaned and left to fend for themselves.

This curriculum builds upon many years of educating students in the garden and scales up content across grades and lessons for instructional scaffolding. It is designed as an interactive teaching tool to be co-taught with classroom teachers and garden instructors as leads. Each lesson connects directly to standards: Next Generation Science, Common Core State, Physical Education, and Environmental and Health Education. The concise and easy to-follow lessons are a packed 45 minutes for preschool through fifth grade. Flexibility is important, so some lessons include several activities that teachers can choose from to accommodate their lesson plans. Consistency is also important, so lessons follow themes and structures found in the Curriculum Map. 360 pages.

Students have the opportunity to read through a bioethical scenario related to biotechnology, then answer a few discussion questions related to the reading  I have students read one scenario on their own and highlight the FIVE most important ¨facts¨ of that scenario (I tell students there isn´t a wrong answer, they can highlight which ever pieces they feel are the most important from the reading- this allows different viewpoints to be demonstrated when they do the next part)  Then students get into a small group with others that read the same scenario.  They first discuss which items they each highlighted and what they thought about the article.  Next I hand out the discussion questions related to their reading passage and have the students answer the questions as a group.    For the last part of the discussion, I have students regroup so that each new group has ONE person from eaching reading passage.  Students share out a quick summary of their passage and then ask the new group if they think biotechnology should continue related to the information in the article.  If time permits, we have a whole class discussion about the ethics behind biotechnology and the different examples demonstrated in the reading passages.

In “The Biotech Game of Life,” which is similar to the Game of Life, each player is a scientist attempting to successfully bring his or her biotechnology product to the market. During the game, players will face many obstacles before obtaining a successful product and the first one to accomplish this wins. Below are the instructions, which provides more details on the game, and links to the game board and play money (pdf files). Note, that like the real thing, it is quite challenging to finish the game.To add more content to this activity, you can have students conduct reserach on their assigned ¨idea¨ from the beginning of the game.  I have them conduct the research and share out with their classmates about their topic BEFORE we start to play the game.  Additionally, at the end of the game, you can have them conduct research on regulations and trials currently impacting the biotechnology industry.

The curriculum section provides over one hundred garden-based lessons to create, expand, and sustain garden-based learning experiences. It offers practical ideas and resources for every level of garden-based learning from sprouting seeds to understanding the food system.

This curriculum section was compiled by the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources Garden-Based Learning Workgroup. The content for this section was borrowed, with permission, from various resources. It was our goal to use existing resources as not to “recreate the wheel” and to give a broad example of the garden-based learning resources that are currently in print.

The section is divided into 12 theme areas with applications for primary and upper grade level students.
