This unit plan is not only outlined with immense detail but the lessons are incredibly creative!
The first lesson covers the following:
Students will divide into groups and select a biome to research.
Students will choose individual group roles to complete.
1.Students will define the term biosphere.
2.Students will distinguish between populations, communities, and ecosystems.
3.Students will name the types of abiotic factors in an ecosystem.
4.Students will name three types of interactions among biotic factors in an environment (i.e. competition for resources, predation, and symbiosis).
5.Students will list some ways biotic and abiotic factors in an environment interact (i.e. describe how biomes are determined by climate).
Each lesson comes with handouts/rubrics/quiz's. The biome project has everything you need for organization!
