Product Description

This environmental science lesson and activity is a great introduction to ecology. Topics included in this lesson are: biotic factors, abiotic factors, ecological organization (individual, population, community, ecosystem, biome, biosphere) producers, consumers, decomposers, habitat, niche, autotrophs and heterotrophs, food chains, food webs, tolerance, specialists v. generalists, fundamental niche, realized niche, principle of competitve exclusion, interspecific competition

This lesson is part of my Environmental Science: Biosphere Bundle. All 7 of these lessons are designed for a flipped classroom, but are easily adapted for any science teacher interested in a hands-on, project-based approach to learning.

*Please note: I am updating each of the files in this bundle, but this is currently the first lesson to be updated to include supplemental resources and digital options. Please be patient as I update the files, but you can buy the bundle now and get the future updates for FREE!

This lesson is designed to facilitate independent learning and is ideal for a sub plan or simply to encourage self-instruction of basic concepts. If independent learning isn't your goal, it still fits perfectly into a teacher-directed curriculum.

Ready to spend more time practicing concepts, doing activities and labs with your class and less time droning on about vocabulary and basic ideas? So are your students! Start flipping your classroom!

What's a flipped classroom?

In a flipped science classroom, students independently gain vocabulary and basic concepts through internet webquests and videos. Then, in a teacher-guided lab activity, students are able to practice these concepts and see them come to life in real environments.

But I don't have a flipped classroom. Can I still use this product?

Absolutely! Your students can just do the independent learning and web-quests on the first day or two, then follow with the activity/lab the following day! The independent learning days are also great for subs!

This curriculum is ideally geared towards high school students, but is appropriate for any student looking for an independent, student-centered approach to learning. The lessons may be used as part of a complete curriculum, but they also work great for independent learners or substitute plans.

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

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 quick lesson to add to your science curriculum, this is the perfect selection.

This is a very thorough, engaging set of lessons. Your students will thank you!
