Population Influences within ecosystems. This TWO DAY package includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the PowerPoint), and a student lesson handout as a word document. The PowerPoint is fun and applicable with a video embedded into the PowerPoint.
Included in the lesson package is:
– The teacher version of the PowerPoint
– The student version of the PowerPoint
– Video embedded into the PowerPoint
– Student lesson handout
In order, the lesson covers:
– Limiting factors
– Biotic & Abiotic population influences
– Predator-Prey relationships
– Population equation
– Exponential growth
The student version of the power point contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
I also have a range assignments and lessons/units from other grade levels at my store.
