    Description

    This HUGE Bundle addresses the NGSS MS LS Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics. Students will learn about interactions between organisms, cycling of matter and flow of energy, physical and biological components of an ecosystem, and designing a solution to address an ecological problem.

    Bundle Includes:

    Ecosystems Patterns and Interactions

    Ecosystem Food Webs

    Evaluate a Competing Design

    Cycling of Matter

    Ecosystem and Food Web Reading Unit

    Ecosystem Food Sorting Cards

    Field Journal

    Ecosystem in a Jar

    Coral Reef Reading Unit

    I have combined several resources here to meet all the standards for MS NGSS LS2.  This bundle saves you 20% on what the individual resources would cost. This bundle addresses these standards:

    NGSS MS- LS2-1 Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for the effects of resource availability on organisms and populations of organisms in an ecosystem.

    NGSS MS-LS2-2 Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems.

    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 2.4 Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations.

    NGSS MS-LS2-5.

    Evaluate competing design solutions for maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem services.

    This resource includes informative slideshows on ecosystems and interactions of organisms, informational text articles on ecosystems and energy flow, interactive notebook flaps, hands-on labs, response pages, sorting activities, and assessments in the form of quizzes that are similar to the end of year testing. Includes a carrying capacity game and ecosystem sorting cards with task cards.

    Lots of great activities on ecosystems.  Students will be highly engaged in learning all about ecosystems, energy flow, and patterns of interactions between organisms in an ecosystem. The reading passages and comprehension questions are of high interest and students will develop content area vocabulary.

    This is a complete bundle on ecosystems. Students will make a model of the flow of energy among living things in an ecosystem. They will construct an argument that populations are affected by biological and physical components of the ecosystem. They will learn about biodiversity and design a solution to address an ecological issue. Students will build food webs and identify relationships between organisms in the ecosystem.

    Designed to Address Middle School Life Science Standards from the LS2 DCI, Ecosystems, Interactions, Energy and Dynamics:

    LS2.An Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems

    LS2.B Cycles of Matter and Energy Transfer in Ecosystems

    LS2.C Ecosystem Dynamics, Functioning and Resilience

    LS2.D Social Interactions and Group Behavior

    Students will look at ecological problems and design solutions. Students will learn about the interactions of organisms within an ecosystem. They will learn about the flow of energy within an ecosystem and also learn about the carbon cycle, oxygen cycle and nitrogen cycle. Students will learn about carrying capacity and limiting factors within an ecosystem. Students will learn about how changes in ecosystems affect organisms. This is a very comprehensive ecosystem unit.

    Standards

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    NGSSMS-LS2-4
    Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations. Emphasis is on recognizing patterns in data and making warranted inferences about changes in populations, and on evaluating empirical evidence supporting arguments about changes to ecosystems.
    NGSSMS-LS2-5
    Evaluate competing design solutions for maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem services. Examples of ecosystem services could include water purification, nutrient recycling, and prevention of soil erosion. Examples of design solution constraints could include scientific, economic, and social considerations.
    NGSSMS-LS2-3
    Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem. Emphasis is on describing the conservation of matter and flow of energy into and out of various ecosystems, and on defining the boundaries of the system. Assessment does not include the use of chemical reactions to describe the processes.
    NGSSMS-LS2-2
    Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems. Emphasis is on predicting consistent patterns of interactions in different ecosystems in terms of the relationships among and between organisms and abiotic components of ecosystems. Examples of types of interactions could include competitive, predatory, and mutually beneficial.
    Trace and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, distinguishing claims that are supported by reasons and evidence from claims that are not.
