Our Algae lesson plan presents in-depth information about algae and focuses on helping students understand the benefits of algae, different types, and where it can be found in the world. Illustrations and photographs are provided to enhance students’ understanding. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity and collaboration skills to create an informational poster about algae using information from this lesson and their own independent research. Students are also asked to match terms with their correct definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define algae, identify characteristics of algae, list benefits of algae, and name places where algae can be found.
