1. Natural Resources Semester Two 2012

2. Natural Resources 1/30/12Week of 1/30 to 2/3 • Entry Task – Monday • Look at our “tree” and consider topics we still need to learn about. What are you most interested in and why? • Nominate TWO recycling ambassadors for the week. These students must demonstrate polite and responsible behaviors • They will collect and empty recycling during the the 10 minutes after entry task.

3. Landscape Mapping and Design using scale drawings • We are going to begin our study of landscape mapping and design! You’ll need pencils and calculators and we will start in the classroom. • STUDENT PREP: Clipboards, yard sticks and tape measures, pencil, calculators (or phone with calculator), graph paper. • Make a scale drawing of the classroom. • Your scale will be 2 feet = ¼ inch. Check that the squares on the graph paper are ¼ inch. • Actual length of object DIVIDED BY 2 feet = number of squares on graph paper. • Draw two sides of the boundary. You can measure from there. • On sunny days we will head outside to start mapping!

4. Natural Resources 1/31/12 • Entry Task - Tuesday • Think of an object which is 4 feet long in real life. If the scale is 2 feet = ¼ inch (or one square of graph paper), how many squares long would that be? • Using this scale (2 feet = ¼ inch), draw a table which in real life is 3 feet by 1.5 feet.

5. Natural Resources 2/1/12 • Entry Task – Wednesday • How would you represent a tree on a landscape map? Remember, this is bird’s eye view! • What would a tree with a diameter of 12 feet look like on the map? • PS – DRESS WARM TOMORROW AND NEXT WEEK!!

6. Recycling Ambassadors • Discuss personal qualities necessary to be a good leader and ambassador of our recycling program. • Smart about recycling • Good with people – not too shy! • Behave appropriately – not goof off the whole time • Respectful to partner ambassadors, and the teachers, and other students. • Don’t freak out about meeting new people or helping them with recycling. • PARTICIPATION – do the work! And staying on the job until it’s done. • Have fun – stay out of trouble • Responsibility – be on task, do what you are asked to do • NO DETOURS! • BE NICE! • Based on these traits, please nominate a person and share the qualities you see in them. • Silent vote by ballot. • TOMORROW, whole class tour of recycling pick-up for 7th period.

7. Finish Classroom Maps • Watch Ms. Maring’s example and copy onto your own map. • Work quietly and effectively with your partner. • DO NOT USE METER STICKS TO MAKE NOISES OR HIT PEOPLE. • Maps should include perimeter of classroom. • Student tables • Lab Stations • Back work tables • Scale: 2 feet=one square graph paper (1/4 inch)
