Are you in a 1:1 environmental science classroom? This bundle of lessons, labs, and field activities is perfect for an introduction to a high school environmental science course.

Topics: ecology, food webs, human impact on the environment, environmental succession, biodiversity, biomes, invasive species, endangered species, population ecology

The notes and projects are designed to facilitate independent learning on student devices and are ideal for sub plans or simply to encourage self-instruction of concepts. Activities and extension pages provide opportunities for class discussion and interaction while adequately preparing students in data analysis and graphing.

Note: This bundle is perfect for a distance learning situation, but some lab activities may need to be ignored until students return to the classroom.

Lessons: (Click on each one for a closer look)

  1. Earth's Spheres- Biosphere, Hydrosphere, Atmosphere, Geosphere, Cryosphere
  2. Ecology & Food Chains
  3. Biological Relationships
  4. Species
  5. Population Growth
  6. Biomes
  7. Ecological Succession
  8. Biodiversity

Each lesson includes:

1. Lesson- Content & vocabulary gained through internet links, videos, and/or PowerPoint presentations. Students type notes on digital documents using their individual devices.

2. Activity- Lab, game, or class activity designed to apply the concepts learned in the lesson. Some of these can be completed independently on a student device. Some will need to be done in a classroom setting.

3: Assessment- Quiz, assignment, exit ticket, or project as a culmination and review of lesson

4: Extension pages- Resources to practice graphing, data analysis, critical thinking, or research

*For details on each of the lessons, please see the PREVIEW button.

*Please note: This bundle is made for a classroom in which students have access to their own device (1:1 classes). If this is not true of your classroom, you may want the printable version of this bundle.

My Environmental Science Series includes lessons for each sphere of the earth:

1. Environmental Science: Atmosphere Bundle

2. Environmental Science: Biosphere Bundle

3. Environmental Science: Lithosphere Bundle

4. Environmental Science: Hydrosphere Bundle

*Please note: I am currently updating this course. The Biosphere Bundle is completely redone and the other bundles will be updated in 2020.

These lessons are designed to be easy to use for both students and teachers. Regardless of whether you've taught Environmental Science for years or just need a few quick lessons to add to your science curriculum, this is the perfect selection.

NGSSHS-ETS1-1
Analyze a major global challenge to specify qualitative and quantitative criteria and constraints for solutions that account for societal needs and wants.
NGSSHS-LS2-8
Evaluate evidence for the role of group behavior on individual and species’ chances to survive and reproduce. Emphasis is on: (1) distinguishing between group and individual behavior, (2) identifying evidence supporting the outcomes of group behavior, and (3) developing logical and reasonable arguments based on evidence. Examples of group behaviors could include flocking, schooling, herding, and cooperative behaviors such as hunting, migrating, and swarming.
NGSSHS-LS2-2
Use mathematical representations to support and revise explanations based on evidence about factors affecting biodiversity and populations in ecosystems of different scales. Examples of mathematical representations include finding the average, determining trends, and using graphical comparisons of multiple sets of data. Assessment is limited to provided data.
NGSSHS-ESS2-2
Analyze geoscience data to make the claim that one change to Earth’s surface can create feedbacks that cause changes to other Earth systems. Examples should include climate feedbacks, such as how an increase in greenhouse gases causes a rise in global temperatures that melts glacial ice, which reduces the amount of sunlight reflected from Earth’s surface, increasing surface temperatures and further reducing the amount of ice. Examples could also be taken from other system interactions, such as how the loss of ground vegetation causes an increase in water runoff and soil erosion; how dammed rivers increase groundwater recharge, decrease sediment transport, and increase coastal erosion; or how the loss of wetlands causes a decrease in local humidity that further reduces the wetland extent.
NGSSHS-LS2-6
Evaluate claims, evidence, and reasoning that the complex interactions in ecosystems maintain relatively consistent numbers and types of organisms in stable conditions, but changing conditions may result in a new ecosystem. Examples of changes in ecosystem conditions could include modest biological or physical changes, such as moderate hunting or a seasonal flood; and, extreme changes, such as volcanic eruption or sea level rise.
