Description

This bundle of lessons, labs, and activities is perfect for a high school environmental science course and will introduce your students to the topics of identifying a species, endangered species, threatened species, and speciation.

This lesson is designed to facilitate independent learning and is ideal for a sub plan or simply to encourage self-instruction of basic concepts. If independent learning isn't your goal, it still fits perfectly into a teacher-directed curriculum.

Included in this product:

  • Detailed teacher lesson plan including essential questions, standards, included resources, and materials list
  • Student web-quest on defining species, endangered species & threatened species with guided student notes
  • Endangered species research project with grading rubric
  • 3 additional assignments:
  1. Digging Deeper: Speciation
  2. Real Life Scenario: Ozarks' Collard Lizard case study
  3. Data Analysis: Interspecific Competition

➤My Environmental Science Series includes lessons for each sphere of the earth:

1. Hydrosphere Bundle (in digital/paperless or print versions)

2. Biosphere Bundle (in digital/paperless or print versions)

3. Atmosphere Bundle (in digital/paperless or print versions)

4. Geosphere/Lithosphere (in digital/paperless or print versions)

How do I use this lesson?

Students independently gain vocabulary and basic concepts through internet web-quests and videos. Then in research and online activities, students are able to practice these concepts and see them come to life in real environments. This lesson bundle is perfect for substitutes or distance learning because students can work independently.

What curriculum could I use with this lesson?

This lesson is ideally geared towards high school students and would work well with a general level Environmental Science or Biology textbook. It addresses the following topics in AP Environmental Science (APES):

  • 5.10: Impacts of Urbanization
  • 8.2: Human Impacts on Ecosystems
  • 9.9: Endangered Species
  • 9.10: Human Impacts on Biodiversity

Standards

NGSSHS-LS2-2
Use mathematical representations to support and revise explanations based on evidence about factors affecting biodiversity and populations in ecosystems of different scales. Examples of mathematical representations include finding the average, determining trends, and using graphical comparisons of multiple sets of data. Assessment is limited to provided data.
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.
NGSSHS-ESS3-4
Evaluate or refine a technological solution that reduces impacts of human activities on natural systems. Examples of data on the impacts of human activities could include the quantities and types of pollutants released, changes to biomass and species diversity, or areal changes in land surface use (such as for urban development, agriculture and livestock, or surface mining). Examples for limiting future impacts could range from local efforts (such as reducing, reusing, and recycling resources) to large-scale geoengineering design solutions (such as altering global temperatures by making large changes to the atmosphere or ocean).
NGSSHS-LS2-7
Design, evaluate, and refine a solution for reducing the impacts of human activities on the environment and biodiversity. Examples of human activities can include urbanization, building dams, and dissemination of invasive species.
