The five agents of evolutionary change are reviewed in this slideshow. Definitions of common terms involved with populations and equilibrium are given, and there are some presentations of Hardy Weinberg equations for common examples of characteristics of populations.
What can jump 150 times its own length? Fleas! Assign this reading passage to your class, and they'll not only develop reading skills, but they'll learn about fleas. After reading the excerpt, they answer the questions that follow. All questions are in multiple-choice format.
Students investigate the type of species surviving in a community. In this biology lesson, students differentiate between extinction and competition. They discuss competition and specialization of species.
Second graders explore the lives of insects by participating in a card game. In this metamorphosis lesson, 2nd graders define several scientific vocabulary terms associated with insects and identify the different life cycles associated with specific insects. Students utilize insect cards to play a game of "Go Fish" with bugs.
Students use a large seet of habitat cards, spread out in one area. They, in groups, practice sorting themselves into the correct habitat based on what function card they received.
Students learn about various types and examples of symbiotic relationships. They then create a memory card game in which they challenge others to match "hosts" with their appropriate "symbionts."
Young scholars discover how organisms are dependent on one another for survivial. They also discuss how to conserve natural resources. They compare and contrast the different types of symbiotic relationships as well.
Seventh graders look up pictures of viruses or pictures of models of viruses. Using pipe cleaners, beads, Styrofoam or other available materials make models of these shapes. They then observe a demonstration to show the effect of Tobacco Mosaic Virus.
In a series of lessons, examine the impact on humans by microcosms in the biosphere. Among the plans structured for students with different abilities and learning styles, are activities describing the symbiotic relationship, drawing the water cycle, identifying pollutants, describing hypozia and relating it to Long Island Sound.
Students analyze three different types of temporary shelters and their designs for environmental factors. In this shelter design lesson, students analyze how designers address environmental problems for homeless or refugees. Students complete image based discussions and three related projects.
Young scholars watch videos about unusual fish behavior and write to marine scientists about the proper care of fish. In this fish lesson plan, students watch the videos on how to properly transfer fish to saltwater, and they do so in an aquarium.
Literature containing life cycle information is available from many sources. Several examples of this type of literature are listed below with a synopsis and sample questions for each. These examples have been taken from a variety of reading and interest levels in the hopes that there will be something for everyone here. This brief survey is not meant to be inclusive, but rather to serve as a starting point.
Eighth graders study how and why animals are classified into eight groups in the animal kingdom. They work together to identify organisms. They use the key to determine the phylum for the included problems.
Fifth graders examine the basic structure of corals and the concept of symbiosis. They watch a Powerpoint Presentation, develop an original pair of organisms living symbiotically, and create an edible model of a coral polyp.
Students investigate defensive mechanisms of insects and organisms. In this biology lesson, students draw imaginary caterpillars as well as imaginary parasites that will harm the caterpillar. Students utilize the Internet to discover what parasites are capable of doing to caterpillars and how caterpillars adapt in dangerous scenarios.
Students assess the factors affecting animal populations. Working in groups they define specific vocabulary terms and complete several activities from "Project Wild."
Student compare and contrast a habitat and a niche. They explain an animal's habitat, niche, and the possible relationship it may have with other organisms. Students create and draw a new organism and describe its habitat.
In this fungus non-fiction reading comprehension activity, students read a 3 page selection that describes the characteristics and life of fungi. They answer 10 questions based on the reading which include true or false, multiple choice, and fill in the blanks.
Pupils investigate interrelationships among organisms. For this salt water lesson, students create a model of a salt water ecosystem. They maintain and track changes in population, plant growth, and water quality.
Students study symbiosis and its association in nature. In this organisms activity students divide into groups and research organisms that have a symbiotic relationship.
