Student Activites
In this plan, students are asked to complete a notes page while watching the video and the sub will go over the answers (answer key included).
In the follow up activity, students are given an informational text and asked to analyze the text (worksheet provided) and create a graphic organizer.
There are 6 informational texts in total. I have a version of this activity that uses learning stations and additional information and requirements as well.
The 6 informational text topics are:
•Gray wolves in Yellowstone •12 Invasive Species •Burmese Pythons in the Everglades •Brook Trout as an Indicator Species •Climate Change and its Impact on Cold Water Fish •Declining Numbers of Frogs and Toads (Indicator Species) 
I have created a brief preview card with a QR code for digital use or you can access the article list via a link provided  (link information is also provided in the sub notes).

When you return:
I would suggest discussing the articles and notes upon your return.
Following this lesson, students will be ready to evaluate and/or design solutions for some of the issues that the heath of our ecosystems are facing.
Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Compare and contrast the information gained from experiments, simulations, video, or multimedia sources with that gained from reading a text on the same topic.
Distinguish among facts, reasoned judgment based on research findings, and speculation in a text.
Integrate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text with a version of that information expressed visually (e.g., in a flowchart, diagram, model, graph, or table).
Analyze the author’s purpose in providing an explanation, describing a procedure, or discussing an experiment in a text.
Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 6–8 texts and topics.
