Description

GOOGLE DOC VERSION - STUDENTS TYPE INTO DOCUMENT - NO PRINTING NEEDED

This research assignment has two goals:

1. Students learn to conduct research, and

2. Students really learn the survival needs of a particular animal species as part of their ecology unit.

The student worksheet guides them to finding the correct information; it can be used as an outline for writing a report or used as is.

Detailed teacher and student instructions and a grading rubric included.

The zip file contains:

1. PDF of all directions and student worksheets (see PREVIEW).

2. Link to the Google Doc version.

3. Word document of student sheets only - I like my students to be able to type directly into the worksheet and I'd like for you to have this option as well!

NGSSHS-LS2-8
Evaluate evidence for the role of group behavior on individual and species’ chances to survive and reproduce. Emphasis is on: (1) distinguishing between group and individual behavior, (2) identifying evidence supporting the outcomes of group behavior, and (3) developing logical and reasonable arguments based on evidence. Examples of group behaviors could include flocking, schooling, herding, and cooperative behaviors such as hunting, migrating, and swarming.
NGSSHS-LS2-6
Evaluate claims, evidence, and reasoning that the complex interactions in ecosystems maintain relatively consistent numbers and types of organisms in stable conditions, but changing conditions may result in a new ecosystem. Examples of changes in ecosystem conditions could include modest biological or physical changes, such as moderate hunting or a seasonal flood; and, extreme changes, such as volcanic eruption or sea level rise.
NGSSMS-LS2-2
Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems. Emphasis is on predicting consistent patterns of interactions in different ecosystems in terms of the relationships among and between organisms and abiotic components of ecosystems. Examples of types of interactions could include competitive, predatory, and mutually beneficial.
Analyze the structure of the relationships among concepts in a text, including relationships among key terms (e.g., force, friction, reaction force, energy).
Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 9–10 texts and topics.
