Population Dynamics of Growth of Drosophila
Students experiment with Drosophila to determine if density of female flies, food sources, temperature and light affect the population dynamics of growth. Students graph their data and compare their results to the number of human offspring-female in a heavily populated city to the number in a lesser populated city.

Computer Simulation Experiments in Population Dynamics Using NetLogo Models
Students experience an online based ecosystem simulation involving sheep and wolves. They design an experiment to determine how to make the populations fluctuate less wildly and become more stable. Many variables have to be tweaked for this lab to be successful.

Elementary ecologists pretend to be migratory hummingbirds. They fly between wintering and nesting grounds, trying to reach a habitat haven. In a musical-chair fashion, some birds will miss out, and are removed from the game. To further affect the success of the birds, you will add migration mishaps or enhancements, such as habitat loss due to construction or concerned citizens planting hummingbird gardens.

Human Population Growth WebQuest
Explore the fascinating study of population growth using real-time online growth calculators, animated maps, and primary sources. Have researchers get out their notebooks and, preferably, one computer for each one or two learners. They investigate growth patterns through a WebQuest, which you should consider providing as a link so scholars can click on the URL addresses instead of type them in.

Human Population - Worksheet and Reading Guide
Stretch young environmentalists' minds with the ten questions in this worksheet. Though written as a reading guide, most of the questions can follow a lecture on human population dynamics and environmental impact. You will need to provide information on the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in order to use this as a homework assignment.

Review of Populations
Students review the concept of populations. In this Biology lesson plan, students will work with a partner to talk through what they remember from the unit on populations. The class will then begin to work through a concept map as a way to organize what was talked about with their partners.

The World Population Explosion
Students are introduced to some of the fundamental questions about the connections among population, resources and energy use, and environmental impacts. They explore population growth, interpret a line graph and calculate their own rate of growth.

The History and Future of Human Population Growth
Young scholars create a timeline of human population growth based on guided reading. In this biology lesson, students analyze the trend of how population increased over time. They share their findings in class.
