Transcript of Non Linear Instruction in the Living Environment

The Living Environment Ecology Human Ecology Homeostasis Reproduction Genetics Lesson #2: Interactions & Interdependence key terms:
-Trophic Level
-Food Chain
-Food Web
-Symbiosis EQ: Which population in a food chain plays the most significant role? key terms:
-biosphere Lesson 1: Ecological Organziation EQ: Which level of organization do you think is most similar to the glass "ecosphere"? Lesson 3: Ecosystem Sustainability EQ: Which environment do you think is more stable, a forest or a cornfield? Key Terms (Set C):
-carrrying capacity
-limiting factors
-finite resources
-dynamic equilibrium
-ecological succession
-pioneer organisms
-climax community
-flora Evolution Lab/Activities:
1) Oh Deer (D.E.C's Project Wild):
Simulate how the abiotic components of a habitat (food water, shelter, limit the size of a deer population & how biotic factors (wolves) will also limit their size.
2) Ecological Succesion Flip Book
Illustrate the stages of forest succession by creating a flip book NYS L.E. Core Curriculum Standards & Performance Indicators: 1.1b An ecosystem is shaped by the nonlinving envirnoment as wel as its interacting species. The world contains a wide diversity of physical conditions, which creates a variety of environments.
1.1d Ecosystems, like many other complex systems, tend to show cyclic changes around a state of approximate equilibrium.
1.1f Every population is linked, directly or indirectly, with many other ecosystems. Disruptiosn in the numbers and types of species and environmental change ca upset ecosystem stabiilty.
6.1d The number of organisms any habitat can support (carrying capacity) is limited by teh available energy, water, oxygen, and minerals, and the ability of ecosystems to recycle teh rewidue of dead organisms through the activities of bacteria and fungi.
6.1e In any particular environment, the growth and survival or oganisms depned on the physical conditions including light intensity, temperature range, mineral availabilty, soil/rock type, and relativie acidity (pH)
6.1f Living Organisms have th capacity to produce populations of unlimited size, but envirnomntal resources are finite. This has a profound effect on the interactions among organisms.
6.3b Through ecological succession, all ecosytems progress thorugh a sequence of changes during which one ecological community modifies the environment, making it more suitable for another community. These long-term gradual changes result in the community reaching a point of stabiltiy that can last for hundreds and thousands of years.
6.3c A stable ecosystem can be altered, either rapidly or slowly, through the activities of organisms (including humans), or through gradual changes back to a point of long term stability. May/June- Regents Review End of Year Essential Question: Lesson 1: Evolution by Natural Selection Essential Question: Suppose there is a populations of rabbits with 100 members, 75 are brown and 25 are white, which members are most likely to survive? What information do you need to answer this question? Labs/Activities:

would be on a branch closest to humans?
single-celled organisms
multi-cellular organisms

Molecular evidence
Organic Compounds
Inorganic Compounds
Scientific Theory Labs/Activities:

2. Non-Renewable Resources
3. Finite Resources
4. Fossil Fuels
5. Closed System
6. Human Population Growth The study of how living things interact and are interdependent with each other and their physical environment Change within the characteristic of a specific population over time due to the natural selection of some genetic traits over others. the study of the molecular code stored in DNA and found in all living things. A process, either sexual or asexual, that allows a species to continue itself by passing down genetic traits to the next generation. The process by which living things keep a stable internal environment; involves all chemical activities necessary to maintain life. Ecology Human Ecology Homeostasis Reproduction Genetics Evolution Lesson2: DNA, Genes & Inheritance Essential Question: If human DNA is 99.7% similar, then what accounts for the .3% difference? Lesson2: Meiosis and Sexual Reproduction Essential Question: Why does sexual reproduction lead to more variation than asexual? Lesson 2: Examples of Natural Selection Key Terms:
Natural Selection
Survival of the Fittest
Selecting Agent
Finite Resources
Selective Breeding Key Terms:
Natural Selection
Survival of the Fittest
Selecting Agent
Finite Resources
Overproduction Essential Question: What are some examples of Evolution by Natural Selection Essential Question: What is the relationship between genes and traits? Lesson 2: Basic Biological Processes that Sustain Life Lesson 2: Loss of Biodiversity Essential Question: How do basic life processes such as nutrition and respiration occuring at the cellular level, impact larger levels of organization such as an ecosystem? Essential Question: Do you think biodiverisity increases the stability of an ecosystem, or decreases it due to competition between species? Key Terms:
