Description

Students will create a diorama or shadow box for a biome of their choice.

The 3 page project packet requires students to write about their biome and to list biotic and abiotic factors which are included in their shadow box.

Students will create a food web which represents all the biotic factors of their ecosystem as well as describing how physical and biological changes in the ecosystem will impact the populations.

Editable version (Keynote) included.

Standards supported:

  • Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for the effects of resource availability on organisms and populations of organisms in an ecosystem.
  • Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems.
  • Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem.
  • Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations.

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
NGSSMS-LS2-4
Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations. Emphasis is on recognizing patterns in data and making warranted inferences about changes in populations, and on evaluating empirical evidence supporting arguments about changes to ecosystems.
NGSSMS-LS2-3
Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem. Emphasis is on describing the conservation of matter and flow of energy into and out of various ecosystems, and on defining the boundaries of the system. Assessment does not include the use of chemical reactions to describe the processes.
NGSSMS-LS2-2
Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems. Emphasis is on predicting consistent patterns of interactions in different ecosystems in terms of the relationships among and between organisms and abiotic components of ecosystems. Examples of types of interactions could include competitive, predatory, and mutually beneficial.
