## 3 Lesson Plans

Different Bodies of Water

This is the introductory lesson in a 4-lesson unit of study about different bodies of water, their characteristics, and how to translate natural language into computer language.

Florida Water Hazard Warning Simulation

This lesson is a culminating lesson in the Florida Landforms & Water Unit that gives students the ability to use their knowledge of water and potential weather hazards that affect different Florida landforms. This lesson allows students to create a computer program that demonstrates a flood hazard and how to monitor it.

Logical Bodies of Water and Algorithms

This lesson will allow students to understand Florida landforms as systems and identify their characteristics. This lesson will also give understanding of how computers take input, give output, take commands, and execute an action from a user. Lastly this lesson will use different graphical representations, like tables and flowcharts to understand how computers think, while students create origami to review their science concepts. This is lesson 2 in a 4-lesson unit on Florida Landforms and Water.
