This unit supports distance learning- a PDF with links to Google Drive is included in order to assign student activities remotely.
Ecology 3 week unit with 200+ pages including interactive notebook activities, task cards, review games. Covers ecosystems, energy flow, food webs, population growth, biogeochemical cycles and biomes.
This unit can be used as a stand alone curriculum or as part of an existing curriculum.
4-5 week unit plan with answer keys and unit planner included!
✽✽ Ecology Notes ✽✽
1 power point divided into 5 sections)
covers the following:
-Introduction to Ecology (basic vocabulary and succession)
-Energy Flow in Ecosystems (primary productivity, trophic levels, producers/consumers, energy pyramids, biomass)
- Population Growth (dispersion, density, exponential vs. logistic growth, determining growth rate, density-independent vs. density dependent factors, r-strategists vs. K-strategists).
- Biogeochemical Cycles: Water, Carbon, Nitrogen
-Communities: Niche- fundamental vs. realized, invasive species, symbiosis + coevolution.
✽✽ Practice Sheets (Classwork and Homework) include: ✽✽
-What is an Ecosystem? - distance learning

Related NGSS Standards:
- : Use mathematical and/or computational representations (graphs, charts, histograms, and population changes gathered from simulations or historical data sets) to support explanations of factors that affect carrying capacity of ecosystems at different scales.
- : Use mathematical representations to support and revise explanations based on evidence about factors affecting biodiversity and populations in ecosystems of different scales.
- : Construct and revise an explanation based on evidence for the cycling of matter and flow of energy in aerobic and anaerobic conditions.
- : Use mathematical representations to support claims for the cycling of matter and flow of energy among organisms in an ecosystem.
- : Develop a model (simulations and mathematical models) to illustrate the role of photosynthesis and cellular respiration in the cycling of carbon among the biosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and geosphere.
- : Evaluate the claims, evidence, and reasoning that the complex interactions in ecosystems maintain relatively consistent numbers and types of organisms in stable conditions, but changing conditions may result in a new ecosystem.
- : Design, evaluate, and refine a solution for reducing the impacts of human activities on the environment and biodiversity.
- : Evaluate the evidence for the role of group behavior on individual and species’ chances to survive and reproduce.
- : Create or revise a simulation to test a solution to mitigate adverse impacts of human activity on biodiversity.
