Seventh graders investigate the different types of biological niches there are in the world while gathering information to correctly define the concept. They choose an animal and use the information to design an art project that includes a writing portion that includes at least one paragraph.
Using a miniature coral reef aquarium kit, young ecologists model this unique ecosystem. They research various coral reef organisms and their niches, and they culminate the project by working together to write a report. Use this activity as an enrichment when you are teaching an ecology unit to your life science learners.
Part of a unit on Arizona's biotic communities, this lesson focuses on the vocabulary to be used. Terms include biodiversity, topography, desert, hybridization, niche, and more! Youngsters will define these words from contextual situations, use them in sentences, and then solve a crossword puzzle by the definitions. The rest of this outstanding unit can be found online or via Lesson Planet.
Someone set out to create an epic slide show on ecosystems, but seems to have stopped short. It begins by examining the parts of an ecosystem and roles that different organisms play within it. Simple, informative, and colorful, these slides are directed at upper elementary ecologists. The last half of these 87 slides; however, are void of photographs or graphics. They do have text about the biomes of the world. If you find the first half to be of your liking, all you would need to do is add some photos to make this slide show an excellent complement to your instruction.
