Begin studying your ECOLOGY UNIT with this cut and paste stacking foldable. Students cut out the 7 Levels of Organization sheets and either hole punch or staple them together. Then you can use the posters attached and have students take notes for each level by conducting a gallery walk around the room or you can have the students cut and paste each definition to each level of organization and draw examples using the internet or their book.

Next Generation Science Standards: MS LS2 and HS LS2: The performance expectations in the topic Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems help students answer the question, “How do organisms interact with the living and non-living environment to obtain matter and energy?” This topic builds on the other topics as high school students demonstrate an ability to investigate the role of biodiversity in ecosystems and the role of animal behavior on survival of individuals and species. Students have increased understanding of interactions among organisms and how those interactions influence the dynamics of ecosystems. Students can generate mathematical comparisons, conduct investigations, use models, and apply scientific reasoning to link evidence to explanations about interactions and changes within ecosystems.
