Product Description
This resource addresses a challenging standard for MS in the NGSS.
Students will come up with a ecological problem specific to the region where they live. They will research and learn more about the problem, obtain information about that problem, and develop a solution which they will present to their peers.

Resource includes worksheets that guide the research, slide show of sample lesson, Thinking Cards to stimulate ideas for research, presentation checklist, reflection page, title page, reference page, sample of student work and directions for the teacher.

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

Covers NGSS standards MS LS2-5 and Utah SEEd 6.4.5

The student pages included are also included in a digital format so that students can type on the and add graphics if you want them to do the work digitally.

Students will use the following Science and Engineering Practices

Asking questions (for science) and defining problems (for engineering)
Analyzing and interpreting data.
Constructing explanations (for science) and designing solutions (for engineering)
Engaging in argument from evidence
Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information


Evaluate competing design solutions for maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem services.* [Clarification Statement: Examples of ecosystem services could include water purification, nutrient recycling, and prevention of soil erosion. Examples of design solution constraints could include scientific, economic, and social considerations.]

Utah SEEd

6.4.5  Evaluate competing design solutions for preserving ecosystem services that protect resources and biodiversity based on how well the solutions maintain stability within the ecosystem.  Emphasize obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information of differing design solutions.  Examples could include policies affecting ecosystems, responding to invasive species or solutions for the preservation of ecosystem resources specific to Utah, such as air, water quality and prevention of soil erosion.
