The relationships within and between ecosystems can be explored. after examining an area for living and non-living things young scholars complete the same examination in the forest ecosystem. Students identify abiotic and biotic elements in an environment and compare the data. This esson was created for teaching in a French immersion classroom and so there are multiple printables that could be used for foreign language practice of this topic.
Junior ecologists relate how food chains and food webs route matter and energy through an ecosystem. They trace feeding levels of a food chain or food web through a pyramid of energy. As a reinforcement activity, learners construct three energy pyramids using some of their mathematical skills to construct them correctly.
Here is a well-designed science lesson that shows learners that everything that organisms do in ecosystems, including running, breathing, burrowing, growing, requires energy. After a thorough discussion of their own eating and drinking habits, young biologists work on dissecting owl pellets. Working in groups, they attempt to recreate the skeleton of the animal that was eaten by the owl.
Using this thoroughly-written plan, you can have your junior ecologists exploring local biodiversity. They take a journal outdoors to tally the species that they see. An article is included along with comprehension questions. The author also includes links to other resources and extension ideas. You will want to save this comprehensive lesson for use with your science class.
At the beginning of the course, junior ecologists learn the basics. On this worksheet, they write out what they know about ecology, ecosystems, and the natural world. It also covers introductory material on the scientific process. Use this resource in your environmental science or ecology classes as a review. Note that there are references to the textbook that the author used, but the questions are relevant to any ecology curriculum.
