This huge resource is aligned with NGSS MS Life Science LS2 Strand and CCSS for 6th Grade Reading Informational Text. This resource is a BUNDLE of other resources combined together here and reduced by 20%.
Science Concepts Addressed:
Flow of Energy
These NGSS Standards are addressed in this Bundle:
Develop a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment.
NGSS MS LS 2.3 Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem.
NGSS MS LS 2.4Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations.
Evaluate competing design solutions for maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem services.
Please Note that NGSS LS1 and LS3 are not addressed in this unit.
Science and Engineering Practices Used by Students:
1. Asking questions (for science) and defining problems (for engineering)
2. Developing and using models
3. Planning and carrying out investigations
4. Analyzing and interpreting data
5.. Constructing explanations (for science) and designing solutions (for engineering)
6. Engaging in argument from evidence
7. Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information
The following resources are included in this bundle:
Owl Pellet Unit For Sixth Grade
