Upon completionof the first task, students Write short answers or fill in the blank for the following questions and statements. Use complete sentences when answering questions.
Native Versus Exotic
Students investigate the presence of exotic and natural species in the ecosystem. They define the differences between exotic and native while looking at one specific ecosystem in Maryland. They write how the exotic species are considered altering to the environment.
Malaria and the Mosquito
Students examine malaria and its causes. Using the internet and other sources, they research mosquitoes and develop a Malaria handbook. In groups, students are assigned sections of the handbook to complete. In addition, they create a PowerPoint presentation to share with the class.
What Relationship Do Species Have?
In this species relationships worksheet, students will brainstorm animals or plants that are examples of mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism.
The Life of Fungi
In this fungi worksheet, students will read about the three different ways that fungi get their food; decomposers, parasites, and mutualists. Then students will match three statements with the diagrams that fit the description.
Ecosystems and Communities
In this ecosystems worksheet, students describe the types of community interactions and disturbances that can affect an ecosystem. Students compare the types of symbiosis - mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism. This worksheet has 9 short answer questions.
Trials of Life: Living Together
In this trials for life worksheet, students fill in the charts as they watch a video. Students identify the types of symbiosis as mutualism, commensalism, parasitism, or predator-prey relationship.
Animal Feeding Strategies
In this food web study worksheet, learners record how 24 animals get their food. Each animal should categorized as a forager, grazer, filter feeder, parasite, predator, or scavenger on the graphic organizer.
Webquest: Eradicating Guinea Worm Disease in Ghana
Students examine the impact of Guinea Worm Disease. In this world issues instructional activity, students take on the roles of Peace Corps Volunteers.

They create public service announcements (PSAs) for radio broadcast to communicate their plans.
WebQuest: Eradicating Guinea Worm Disease in Ghana
Young scholars participate in a webquest regarding Guinea worm disease. In this Guinea worm disease lesson, students gather background information regarding the waterborne illness in Ghana. Young scholars use the information they gather to make PSAs pertaining to their plans to eradicate the disease.
Have Something Done Exercise

Parasite Development and Life Cycle
If you are new to teaching agriculture classes, this outline may be helpful when you are preparing a lecture on parasites in livestock. In addition to lecturing on this topic, the lesson plan suggests that learners research the life cycle of a parasite. You will need to add a PowerPoint or some images to your lecture and a detailed set of requirements for the research assignment.
Habitats and Functions
Students analyze and discuss insect diversity and all of the functions that insects perform in nature. They examine habitat and function cards, and distribute themselves by function and habitat.
How Do You Do?
Seventh graders research organisms in the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. They create a picture book demonstrating their understanding of relationships.
Students answer the question: "How do different organisms living in the same community help each other?" and invent two organisms with attributes that allow them to live together as helpful partners to show their understanding of the question.
Bugsicles (A Frozen Insect Larva You can Find!)
Pupils explore how animals survive in the winder. After attending a gall-collecting field trip, students place them in a freezer. Once frozen, the pupils open the gall flay larva and observe it as the larva revives. Students discuss the various parasites they may find in the gall.
