Visit Suzanne's Classroom Store!

The resources are designed to enrich or supplement your current curriculum.

This product provides supplemental resources that address concepts for Next Generation Science Standard MS-LS2-4 - Ecosystems - Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics: Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations.

Included are 7 posters, along with a bulletin board heading, on 7 causes for the decline in wildlife populations in ecosystems. There are two graphing assignments based on data. There are 2-3 assignments asking students to write a scientific argument (as per the standard). There are several helps/aides to help direct students in this task, including a handout on the main components of a scientific argument compositions, graphic organizers, and a scoring rubric (with a sample).
