Gr. 9-10 Living Environment Lab Manual Part 4

by Sue Costagliola East Meadow School District

This CAP is titled the “Living Environment Lab Manual” which is designed to be incorporated into the Living Environment classrooms, for mostly grades 9 and 10. The goal of this cap is to provide Living Environment teachers with activities and resources that help them reinforce the concepts taught in this course. The labs also enable students to meet the NYS lab time requirement of 1200 minutes. The Labs developed are fun for the students, connect to the curriculum and are modified to meet the needs of our diverse student population. We incorporated a variety of lessons that coincide with the different units covered throughout the year. As successive CAPS are completed new labs that we find helpful will be added to the appropriate units in the lab manual. Internet links and activities have been added that coincide with the curriculum.

Gr. 9-10 Living Environment Station Activity Part 1

by Sue Costagliola East Meadow School District

This CAP is titled the “Living Environment Station Activities Part 1” which is designed to be incorporated into the Living Environment classrooms, for mostly grades 9 and 10. The goal of this cap is to provide Living Environment teachers with activities and resources that help them reinforce the concepts taught in this course. Many of these activities are quick and easy to incorporate into any classroom routine. The stations included in this CAP foster learning by incorporating activities that allow students to use their many different learning styles during each lesson. The activities for each lesson include five different stations that students will rotate through during the duration of a Living Environment period (39 min). Timers should be used to monitor the movement of students and teachers will have the ability to interact with students as they work in cooperative groups. All activities are designed to meet the needs or our diverse student population and reinforce concepts learned in the Living Environment classroom. Lessons include fun ways for students to learn in cooperative groups. Hands-on activities, visuals, regents review, labs concepts, test review, reading comprehension, current events, etc are some of the many activities included within the station lessons developed for this CAP. The variety of activities created for this CAP can be utilized regularly to assess student performance and growth. These activities are meant to make the classroom a more active learning environment and include assignments that represent different learners and multiple intelligences. The activities developed are enjoyable for the students, connect to the curriculum and can be modified to meet the needs of our diverse student population. We incorporated a variety of activities that correspond with the different topics covered throughout the year. The activities focus on concepts tested in the NYS Living Environment regents by using the standards outlined by the state.. The CAP was developed using the Living Environment standards (Standards 1 and Standards 4.1.1, 4.2.1, 4.3.1, 4.4.1, 4.5.1, 4.6.1 and 4.6.2). We’re interested in completing successive CAPS to add to our educational resources. We look forward to collaborating with our colleagues to add to this CAP.
