I created this for APES, but it could easily be used in AP Biology or other general Biology, Ecology, or Environmental Science classes for on-target students (you could easily modify the questions to support lower-level students, as needed).

It's designed around the APES Essential Knowledge ERT-1 Ecosystems are the result of biotic & abiotic interactions, and it ties together concepts of aquatic ecosystems, phosphorus cycle, algal blooms, economics, and human impacts.

Students use a video about Lake Okeechobee in Florida, an article with a more recent update, and three short articles (1, 2, 3) about algal blooms in Wisconsin (where I teach). Students work through the resources, answer questions, and make connections not only to science content, but also between the two situations (FL/WI), building their ability to think more deeply about content.

Answer key is included.
