Ecosystem Tumble

Ecosystem Tumble

Rating
0.0 stars

Students explore the interconnected relationships between plants and animals in an ecosystem. They will decorate wooden blocks with plants and animals and then stack them to simulate an ecosystem (producers on the bottom). They will then take turns removing blocks from the ecosystem, giving a possible reason for that particular organism's removal from the ecosystem until the ecosystem becomes so unstable that it collapses.

Geological History of Cape Cod Massachusetts-Introduction

Rating
0.0 stars

This resource reviews the Pilgrim's initial landing being on the tip of Cape Cod and the impact that this sandy environment had on their movement. Also, as the last continental ice sheets melted away, the water returned to the ocean basins and the sea level rose drowning the land. The impact of the Great ice Age and varied glacial stages, helped to define this region.

0.0 stars

Students develop an appreciation for the complex interrelationships of natural resources in a river basin and how we must learn to steward them. Students will also generate and test hypotheses regarding the effects of specific pollutants upon an aquatic ecosystem by designing and implementing a controlled experiment. Although this module focuses on the Lake Pontchartrain Basin, the activities and content can be applied to any river basin.
