Description

Owl Unit for 6th Grade: Students will love learning about owls! Dissecting owl pellets, reading a nonfiction article on owls and ecosystems, sorting activity, writing prompts, and interactive notebook flaps on owls. The sorting activity is available both as a SMARTboard activity and as a paper sort for teachers who do not have access to SMARTboard. It also includes some food chain sorting cards for creating food chains to show the flow of energy.

Students will learn about the owl's adaptations and how they help owls survive. Students will learn about owls and how they fit into an ecosystem. They will learn about what owls eat and how they care for their young.

This resource is designed to address the Disciplinary Core Ideas for NGSS Ecosystem: Interactions, Energy, and dynamics.

This resource is aligned with MS standards for NGSS

NGSS 5-LS2-1.

Develop a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment.

NGSS MS LS 2.3 Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem.

NGSS MS LS 2.4Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations.

And Utah SEEd

6.4.1

Analyze data to provide evidence for the effects of resource availability on organisms and populations in an ecosystem. Ask questions to predict how changes in resource availability affects organisms in those ecosystems.

6.4.2

Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems.

6.4.3

Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem.

6.4.4

Construct an argument supported by evidence that the stability of populations is affected by changes to an ecosystem.

Science Concepts Include:

Predator-Prey Relationships

Ecosystems

Abiotic and Biotic Factors

Trophic Levels

Animal Adaptations

NGSSMS-LS2-4
Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations. Emphasis is on recognizing patterns in data and making warranted inferences about changes in populations, and on evaluating empirical evidence supporting arguments about changes to ecosystems.
NGSSMS-LS2-3
Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem. Emphasis is on describing the conservation of matter and flow of energy into and out of various ecosystems, and on defining the boundaries of the system. Assessment does not include the use of chemical reactions to describe the processes.
Trace and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, distinguishing claims that are supported by reasons and evidence from claims that are not.
Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative, connotative, and technical meanings.
Determine a central idea of a text and how it is conveyed through particular details; provide a summary of the text distinct from personal opinions or judgments.
