Product Description

Invasive Species - Fully editable and Complete 5E Lesson. By purchasing this bundle you will save 50% vs. purchasing the individual components separately.

Unit Objectives:

By the end of this 5E lesson, students will:

• Investigate factors that cause invasive species to become dangerous and disruptive

• Be able to explain what an invasive species is and what we do to limit their spread

• Explain how invasive species reduce biodiversity in local environments

• Be able to list multiple examples of invasive species both local and around the world

• Understand the importance of maintaining populations in their natural habitat

• Improve vocabulary related to invasive species

• Overcome the misconceptions many children bring with them into adulthood

Buyer Comments:

- "Life saver"

- "Thank you this was a great resource. Perfect for my ESL students!"

- "This was terrific!"

- "The 5 E lesson plan is something that I like to use. I love the way this is organized and easy to follow!"

How does the 5E model facilitate learning?

• It emphasizes inquiry, critical thinking, and the process of science

• Its success is backed by countless scientific studies that demonstrate its effectiveness

• It’s built around the idea that humans construct knowledge and meaning from their learning experiences. That they build upon their prior knowledge and to be effective, learning needs to be active and allow the participants to construct new knowledge from their experiences

------------------------------------------------------------

The NRC's How People Learn has synthesized decades of research across many different disciplines about how people learn (NRC, 1999 blue right-pointing triangle). Key findings from that synthesis include the following. First, students (people) must be interested and engaged in what they are learning and find it useful and meaningful. Second, students (people) must be actively involved in the process of teaching and learning, comparing new information to previous ideas, constructing new understandings, and quite simply changing their own minds about how the world works. And third, students (people) need opportunities to apply what they have learned to new situations, to check the completeness of their understanding, and to evaluate their own learning for themselves. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2931660/)

By incorporating this 5E lesson, you will provide your students with a meaningful and coherent way of learning that best suits their needs. You will also utilize technology in a way that creates order and promotes understanding.

The follow 5E lessons are currently included or will be added shortly. Please note that I will be increasing the number of lessons substantially over the next month. Purchase now before the price goes up.

Explore - Biodiversity and Invasive Species - 7 Engaging Lab Station Activities

This fully editable Lab Station Activity on Biodiversity and Invasive Species and its Production is meant to get your students out of their seats and engaged in the content. Each station not only offers a unique opportunity to test your students' knowledge (offer an opinion, answer questions based on a video or reading, draw, etc.), but also provides a fantastic learning opportunity where your kids are learning through assessment. Each station comes with a description card while some also contain more detailed instructions, a reading, questions to answer, etc. Students are equipped with a recording sheet (passport) to write their answers. There is almost no prep for you. Simply print the cards, lay them out around the room and you're all set. An answer key is also provided where applicable.

--------------------------------------------

Buyer Comments:

- "Great packet for my class"

- "Excellent addition to my invasive species unit."

- "Highly recommended! Thank you!"

--------------------------------------------

This lab activity covers:

- Biodiversity

- Invasive Species

----------------------------------------------

Bonus Activities: To ensure your students don’t have any downtime between stations, your lab also includes a 10-word word scramble and word search, both with an answer key. You can use them as part of their mark, as a bonus so it’s not mandatory, etc. However you choose to use it, it will ensure that your students are always busy and never idle. Note: For stronger classes, I give the word scramble and for weaker ones, the word search.

-----------------------------------------------

How do the Lab Stations work? Each station is specially designed to be a unique complement to the material while at the same time, provide a valuable learning experience. Below is an overview of how each station works. In your activity, each will be tailored to the specific content.

Station 1: Get Hands-On – using their creative skills, students are required to draw or build.

Station 2: Research – using a classroom computer or their own device, students must research a specific question/issue surrounding the topic.

Station 3: Explain yourself – students write down an opinion to a question in paragraph form.

Station 4: Rest Station - students can use this time to catch up on work they didn't have time to complete at a previous station or prepare themselves for an upcoming one.

Station 5 - Applicability reading – students read a short passage from an article, website, etc. which directly connects the classroom content to a real life application.

Station 6: Test your knowledge – students answer 5 multiple choice questions then provide a written explanation for how/why they came to their conclusions.

Station 7: Learn from the expert – using a classroom computer or their own device, students must watch a short video clip and answer the associated questions. They may stop, rewind and restart as often as they like during the time frame.

Station 8 - Rest Station.

Station 9: Become the question master – Students must create 2 multiple-choice questions, 2 true/false questions and 1 short answer question. Students must also supply the answers

Explanation - Invasive Species Lesson

This 18 slide ecology lesson package includes everything you need to teach the concepts of Invasive Species. Specifically, the lesson compares Invasive vs. Native Species, The Effect of an Invasive Species on an Ecosystem, Controlling Invasive Species and then takes a more in-depth look at The Small Asian Mongoose as well as 5 Extreme Cases of Invasive Species. There are 4 videos embedded in the PowerPoint. Simply start the slideshow and click the image and they will open in your browser. The PowerPoint contains diagrams, examples, and explanations. It includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the PowerPoint) and a student lesson handout as a word document which follows the PowerPoint.

Included in the lesson package is:

- The teacher version of the PowerPoint

- The student version of the PowerPoint

- FOUR videos embedded into the PowerPoint

- Student lesson handout

In order, the lesson covers:

Buyer Comments:

- "Love this!!!!"

- "This was exactly what I needed! Students were engaged and interested throughout."

- "A great resource, easy to follow!"

The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
