Title of Presentation or Activity Description
Common Equine Skin Diseases  This lesson covers common equine skin diseases including: causes, symptoms, treatment, and prevention. Located within the slide show are videos which cover a disease in a greater depth than the slides themselves. An around the room activity serves as a small review for students to evaluate what they have learned before the assessment. The assessment is a fill in the blank, true/false test.  
Community Activity: Quilt Fundraiser  In this fun, team-building activity, students use math, science, technology and English skills to create a school-wide quilt contest. For the contest, one class serves as the organizer, while each grade level competes, representing a different cause. The contest raises money for the winning quilt’s organization while requiring the sponsoring class to use their writing, reading, communication, math, and researching skills. 
Conservation of Uses or Resources  Throughout this presentation and activity, students will be exploring renewable and non-renewable resources that surround their everyday life. It is important to understand what type of resource you are using and know how you can conserve that resource to make it last longer. 
Conversions and Simple Machines Activities  This document contains a plethora of middle school activities for both conversions and for simple machines. Lesson plans and worksheets are included for some of the activities. 
Creepy Critters  This presentation is a fun introduction to two creatures that are commonly misunderstood. When people learn and understand more about feared animals they can also learn to respect them and their habitats.
