Symbiosis is an interaction between organisms where they are so dependent on each other they are nearly as one. This bundle has a power point for the initial introduction to symbiosis: endosymbiosis, mutualism, commensalism, parasitism, predation and free-living organisms. There are examples of each with graphs to display the relationships between the organisms.
There is a one-page brochure style foldable which can be taught alongside the power point. It also covers the five types of symbiosis: mutualism, commensalism, parasitism, predation, endosymbiosis, along with free-living organisms.
Students have places to write definitions and there are data charts included for each symbiotic relationship so students can see how populations are affected by symbiotic relationships.
The foldable only needs to be copied front to back. There are two types of foldables for students with regular note-taking skills, and a second with fill in the blank spaces for struggling students. The key is included. The brochure is small and can be easily glued into an interactive notebook.
“Symbiosis: What type of Symbiotic relationship” is a twenty question assessment activity that asks the students to identify what type of symbiotic relationship is being described and shown.
This can be completed as a full class discussion or uploaded to your class website for students to work on in small groups or with a partner. You could also print the slides out and use as task cards.
A printer friendly answer sheet and teacher key is included.
