Title of Presentation or Activity Description
Darwin's Finches Activity  This is a hand's on activity comparing the usefulness of different types of beaks when gathering food. Students will have different tools and compete to pick up various food items. 
Decomposition Studying a Compost Pile  This activity is designed to allow students to observe the natural process of decomposition and understand the effects of different environmental conditions on the efficiency of decomposition. 
Dehydration  This PowerPoint explores the topic of dehydration, any how it relates to body weight. There are numerous math problems in the presentation dealing with percents and proportions. Students will find how much water they need each day based on their weight. 
Density Detective  In this lesson students will learn about density and will play detective to see how this physical property can be used to identify an unknown liquid. Students will be assigned an unknown liquid to investigate. By measuring the mass and volume of the liquid, they can calculate the density. They will then identify their unknown liquid by comparing their experimental density with a table of values of known densities of different liquids.  
Diabetes  This activity is designed to give students a better understanding of diabetes and how it could affect them. It provided the technical information of how diabetes is developed and what consequences come with the prevalent disease. The overall goal of the activity is to encourage healthy eating and exercise habits that can help stay or even prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.
