- I have been teaching AP Biology since 2014 and have made several resources that really improve my students' understanding of content. Here's a big ol' bundle of those things- see individual products for more info about each. Enjoy!Price $100.00Original Price $112.50Save $12.50
- These resources are geared towards a high school level, general Environmental Science class. I teach Gen Enviro to 10th-12th graders and use these resources in my class.Keys & rubrics included when available.Price $69.00Original Price $76.00Save $7.00
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.
