This year, our department moved from interactive notebooks to binder packets. This is the packet we used for our unit on the cycling of matter and flow of energy through an ecosystem. It includes the following topics:
- Cellular respiration
- Trophic levels
- Food webs
- Carbon cycle
- Engineering design: Composting
We used the California Next Generation Science Standards for grade 7.
The light bulb pages are meant as a review and to anchor the unit. After each question has been addressed in lessons, students answer it in preparation for a short quiz. They may use this page as notes on their test, to provide further motivation to actually complete it!
This was originally created as a Google Document. If you would like that version, email me at email@example.com and I'll share it. All I ask is for your feedback so I can improve this resource for others and my own students!
