Description

This resource focuses on the biological concepts

of diffusion, osmosis and ecology especially the interaction of organisms in the cycling of nutrients in an ecosystem.

This package is designed as a one page activity at the beginning, a two page graphing activity in the middle and a single page reading comprehension at the end. The three activities can be rearranged in any way you prefer and can stand alone and apart from each other, but I use the three together with my 9th and 10th grade biology students.

TEACHING GUIDE

ACTIVITY 1 - FISH TANK BIOLOGY:STUDYING ECOSYSTEMS

An introduction to the importance of studying living things in the classroom and at home. A review of ecological principals including interactions of biotic and abiotic factors, cycling of nutrients.

ACTIVITY 2 – GRAPHING DATA: THE EFFECT OF SALT ON DAPHNIA

An introduction to Daphnia sp. as indicators of environmental conditions. A described laboratory activity with the data collected. Students analyze the data to determine percent mortality and then graph that data and answer questions based on the graph.

ACTIVITY 3 – SALT AND WATER BALANCE IN EXERCISING HUMANS

A description of hyponatremia, its cause and symptoms. Questions that encourage students to think about feedback and homeostasis as it relates to salt, blood, and osmosis.

Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that feedback mechanisms maintain homeostasis. Examples of investigations could include heart rate response to exercise, stomate response to moisture and temperature, and root development in response to water levels. Assessment does not include the cellular processes involved in the feedback mechanism.
