Students will have the opportunity to explore competition between different species. Students choose a "Species A" and explain who it affects "Species B."
This document explains the grading criteria for this 6-10 minute presentation that explains the interactions among different species.
I tried to convince them to avoid using humans so that students can see that we are not the only species in the world that drives change. I was strict in that students must specifically choose how one species affects another.
The presentations were very thoughtful and successful and made wonderful reference points throughout our discussion of competition, population sizes, and even some with adaptations.
