GEDB Ecosystems: A Changing World – A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words (Lesson 5 of 6)
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

This lesson will incorporate how organisms affected at one trophic level in an ecosystem can change the entire structure of the ecosystem. The students will gain an understanding that human impact through deforestation, climate change and even restoration effort can alter an ecosystem's flow of energy through a food web which can have a chain effect spreading through the entire food web. The affect could cause an entire ecosystem to collapse especially if the original organism affected is a keystone species or an umbrella species. Students will learn that the extinction of the polar bears will cause devastation on the Arctic ecosystem that may cause the extinction of world biome.This lesson was developed by Elizabeth Bartlett as part of their completion of the North Carolina Global Educator Digital Badge program. This lesson plan has been vetted at the local and state level for standards alignment, Global Education focus, and content accuracy.

Students will investigate an ecosystem of their choice and then create a food web poster with at least 30 organisms. The students will have different sections that will include food web, food chain, energy pyramid, invasive species, and symbiosis, climate and population factors within an ecosystem. This is the summative lesson of the unit. This will allow the student to apply all the information that has been learned throughout the unit. The students will demonstrate through analyzes how an ecosystem is an interconnected ever changing system that incorporates many factors that affect organisms living in the ecosystem.This lesson was developed by Elizabeth Bartlett as part of their completion of the North Carolina Global Educator Digital Badge program.

Lesson one allows students to explore the interconnection between organisms and the environments they make their homes. They will begin with investigating how food webs, food chains and energy pyramids are different and similar throughout the world. By analyzing food webs, food chains, and energy pyramids, the students will be able to discover how different organisms in different ecosystems throughout the world utilize each other for their own survival. This lesson specifically addresses the need for students to understand how organisms within an ecosystem interact with each other. It will include the interaction of producers, consumers, and decomposers as energy flows through the ecosystem.This lesson was developed by Elizabeth Bartlett as part of their completion of the North Carolina Global Educator Digital Badge program.

Lesson 13: Salmon Nutrient Cycling
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

This lesson focuses on how marine-derived nutrients from salmon carcasses find their way into terrestrial environments and how scientists can track these marine-derived nutrients to analyze their importance to ecosystems today, as well as, reconstructing past ecosystem processes. After learning about salmon nutrient cycling, students will complete a food web simulation activity. Students will complete a bioaccumulation quiz as a summary assignment for the lesson.

Students will learn about deep-sea tubeworms. Students will work collaboratively to create a poster or three-dimensional model of a tubeworm. Each group will then prepare a written report describing the anatomy of tubeworms, how a tubeworm obtains food and the symbiotic relationship between the tubeworm and chemosynthetic bacteria, and the role that tubeworms play in the larger cold-seep food web.

Students will be able to describe major features of cold seep communities; list at least five organisms typical of these communities; infer probable trophic relationships among organisms typical of cold-seep communities and the surrounding deep-sea environment; describe the process of chemosynthesis in general terms; contrast chemosynthesis and photosynthesis; and describe at least five deep-sea predator organisms. Students will work in collaborative groups to research the ecology of cold seep communities and orally present their findings to the rest of the class. The teacher will also lead an effort to create a food web showing the ecological relationships of these communities.
