  • Fleas!
    One parasite most students will have heard of and many will have seen is the common cat flea. That's the one that pesters our cats and dogs in the United States (the dog flea harasses European pets). In this lesson, students will learn about the flea's life cycle and the reasons fleas are so attracted to our pets. They'll conclude by writing a story from the flea's perspective.
  • It Came From Greek Mythology
    This page contains 6 EDSITEment lessons based around teaching Greek mythology. Students will study basic plots of three Greek myths and discuss three types of themes in Greek myths. They will also explore contemporary uses of terms from Greek mythology and analyze artistic and literary works based on or inspired by Greek myths.
  • Weather Complaints
    This lesson asks students to consider the weather and climate in their home region and to think about the ways in which people complain about the weather. Students will refer to a climate map to predict what the climate might be like in specified United States cities. They will then find out the average temperatures and precipitation for those cities by using a weather website. As a final project, students will write statements that people in these cities might make to describe their weather and climate.
