Looking for an extension activity for your ecology unit? Do you need a hands-on way for students to extend their learning? If so, this Biome or Ecosystem Shoebox Project is the perfect resource for you!

 

With this Biome or Ecosystem Shoebox resource, students will create a food web which represents all the biotic factors of their ecosystem as well as describing how physical and biological changes in the ecosystem will impact the populations.

 

Who is this resource for?

This resource can be used by classroom teachers, tutors, and parents of students in grades 6-9.

NGSS STANDARDS COVERED BY THIS BIOME OR ECOSYSTEM SHOEBOX PROJECT:

MS-LS2-2 Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems. Emphasis is on predicting consistent patterns of interactions in different ecosystems in terms of the relationships among and between organisms and abiotic components of ecosystems. Examples of types of interactions could include competitive, predatory, and mutually beneficial.
MS-LS2-3 Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem. Emphasis is on describing the conservation of matter and flow of energy into and out of various ecosystems, and on defining the boundaries of the system. Assessment does not include the use of chemical reactions to describe the processes.
MS-LS2-4 Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations. Emphasis is on recognizing patterns in data and making warranted inferences about changes in populations, and on evaluating empirical evidence supporting arguments about changes to ecosystems.
