An Orca Whale that captivated the world, current events and science instruction

Often, our students may become aware of viral stories, and we can use these stories to teach so much content. Consider the example of Tahlequah, the orca carrying her dead calf for days. We could use a graphic organizer such as a four square to build vocabulary or even a KWL chart to help students comprehend complex text. 

An article like this can help students connect to stories on climate change, understand the crisis in our ocean's or even interact with the author using technology like Twitter. 

One Ocean Science Lesson

This National Geographic Resource is found in our LINCS collection and is appropriate for students. I'd like to invite you to check it out and let us know how you would use it your classroom.

  • How do you use the Resources in LINCS?
  • Will this one help you in your Science class?
  • Would you like to have links like this shared weekly?

I'd love to learn more about your expectations for the Science Community of Practice.
