What makes something living? If we needed to leave Earth where could we move to in our solar system that could actually sustain life? In this lesson students will discuss what makes something living. They will also explore the solar system to review what they know so they can make an educated decision on where they could move based off of the factors of W.A.G.O.N. The factors of W.A.G.O.N. include having water, an atmosphere, in the Goldilocks Zone, oxygen present, and the correct nutrients available (CHOPNS). Selected Google Expedition AR and VR lessons: Vertebrates and Invertebrates, Water Cycle (Hydrology), Comets Selected Points of Interest: All objects found In Vertebrates and Invertebrates. Water Cycle from Hydrology Comet (Orbit scene only) Have the students view these scenes while in the Solar System VR Expedition What is the Solar System? Milky Way Galaxy Planets in Our Solar System
This lesson is intended to give you questions to ask while on your expedition that meet state standards about the cell and the cell theory. I have included videos and activities that you can also do before and after the expedition. #Google Expeditions
This is for any teacher that is introducing genetics to their students. You could also use this to introduce students to parts of a cell. Another use would be an introduction to the different domains of life and an example would be the Domain Eukaryota. There are so many uses for this Google Expeditions AR lesson. If students don’t understand about DNA and chromosomes when learning about life and the cell, then they kind have missed the most important part. #GoogleExpeditions
What kinds of characteristics put organisms into domains and kingdoms of life? This Google Expedition is awesome at helping students identify those key characteristics.
Using the Google Expeditions Coral Reef AR lesson is an easy way to review with students about levels of organization within an ecosystem. You can also review factors that make something living and nonliving with this expedition. #Google Expeditions
