Title of Presentation or Activity Description
An Energy Debate  Students will interact with the instructor while navigating a PowerPoint presentation to teach them energy inefficiencies in the home. Then they will break into groups (teams) and compete to design the most logical and energy efficient house plan. The winning team will receive an “Energy Star” award.  
An Escape from Bioterrorism  “An Escape from Bioterrorism!” explores the idea of how scientific modeling fits in to the scientific method. This activity is designed to get knowledge and ideas of how bioterrorism could be dangerous and how we can prevent it from spreading. To gain the best knowledge on bioterrorism, students will participate in a hands-on activity to test a simple model of vector-borne disease. Afterwards, the class will discuss the results and its effects to the real world. The entire activity is structured around the scientific method. This activity is prepared with the reference of PEER module “Texas, 1867,” but it can stand alone.

Anatomy of Flight in Birds  Watch knowledge take flight! In this lesson, students will learn about the internal and external adaptations of birds, specifically the red-tailed hawk, pigeon, and emperor penguin through a PowerPoint presentation to learn how some birds have adapted to fly and others have not. Students will know the anatomy of both flying and grounded birds and understand how their anatomy allows for flight. Afterwards, students will be prepared to complete two exciting labs to better understand avian anatomy: the chicken dissection and testing bone strength! 
Anatomy of Livestock  It is important when learning about the different livestock that the students learn about the anatomy that goes along with those animals. Through this vivid presentation and activity, the students will get a basic overview about the different animal systems that make up the anatomy of that animal. 
         
 
 

The PEER Program is composed of three grants entitled "GK-12 Fellows Integrate Science/Math in Rural Middle Schools", "Integrating Environmental Health Science in Rural Schools," and a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) entitled "Science Promotion in Rural Middle Schools".

Major funding for the PEER Program is provided by John Deere,
the
National Science Foundation, the
National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences
and the Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
