Although Ms. Joselyn Hermoso was able to download our lesson plan yesterday (Sept.15) that we worked together this summer. Our lesson will be implemented between Dec.3-7, 2018. This might be implemented for about 3…[Read more]

    Hi everyone! My fifth-graders will be examining the Titanoboa vertebrae and comparing it to one of today’s typical anaconda. They will fill out the presurveys this week as well as take a presurvey I created on google forms. We will make a bulletin board and work with 50 ft (a reasonable length of the snake) in our math classes as well. Finally, s…[Read more]

    • Hi Shawn, there is no need for a Google form to implement the survey. I will send you a link with the correct platform shortly. Can you please give us dates for pre survey, implementation and post survey? Thanks,

    • Shawn, are you saying you created an additional pre-survey on Google Forms? Are you using it to understand what they know and don’t know about Titanoboa?
      Thanks,
      Pasha

    • Hi guys! Yeah I made this quick presurvey, on the airplane ride back actually.

      https://goo.gl/forms/WdYg3KXklN1u0sEf2

      So my plan is to give both presurveys during the week of 9/24/18. My actual lessons will start on Monday October 1st. We will do a fossil sort on Monday with more activities throughout the week. The goal will be to print 2…[Read more]

    Hello Team;

    from Monterey Bay, CA;

    I have a poor relationship with deadlines.  That’s why its 11:30 on the 15th and I’m just now taking care of this.  Apologies out.  I finished uploading my lesson plan on 3D-ifying the Caminalcule Evolution Lab to the Middle School folder here.  I’ll be completing the Pre-survey, opt-out, and student assent com…[Read more]

    • No worries, Wayne, we understand.

    • I just sent home, on paper and virtually, the parent opt-out forms. Hopefully, none come back. I will administer the student assent forms incrementally in small groups as they move through the scanning station over time. And, of course, they will do the pre-survey prior as well.

    Hello!  I have completed the Parent OPT out process, Student Assent, and Pre-Survey thus far.  My plan is to implement my lesson (can be found uploaded to the middle school folder) during the week of September 24th.  Corresponding handouts and worksheet templates will  be uploaded after that date as well.

    Thanks,

    I’ve collected all of my student Assent Forms and will plan to implement sometime between October and December (I am coordinating a guest speaker/scientist and have not yet hammered out the date). I will administer the pre-lesson survey and the post-lesson survey ~1 week before and after implementation.

    You can find my lesson plan here…[Read more]

    Here is my lesson. I will be teaching it on Nov 29th and 30th.  I would like to do my pre-survey on November 27th.  My consent forms were sent out several weeks ago and I am getting ready to pass out the assent forms to document participation.

    • Great, thanks Tammy! We will take a look at your lesson and get back to you asap.

      • Claudia, can you help me with 3D files for my lesson on homologous structures? I am not finding comparative anatomy for the forearm of a human and two other species. I was wanting to find a cat and a bird.
