5th Grade Wolves Question / Look at the graph. Which is the best predication of how the change in the wolf population will affect the rabbits in the forest?
5th Grade Wolves Answer / Rabbit population will decrease because there are more predators (wolves).
5th Grade Drought Question / Many insects and amphibians lay eggs in puddles or small pools of water. How would a dry summer affect their population?
5th Grade Drought Answer / Adults have fewer places to lay eggs, so there are fewer offspring.
4th Grade Invasive Species Question / When rabbits were introduced to Australia in the mid-1800s, they had few predators. Rabbits feed on the same food as kangaroos. What is a likely outcome of that introduction?
4th Grade Invasive Species Answer / The kangaroo population, which also fed on the vegetation, decreased.
4th Grade Symbiosis Question / A young fish is protected from predators by a jellyfish’s stinging tentacles. The jellyfish is neither helped nor hurt by the presence of the fish. Which relationship does this illustrate?
4th Grade Symbiosis Answer / commensalism
3rd Grade Deer Question / Look at the graph. Predict how the change in the deer population will affect the plants in the forest.
3rd Grade Deer Answer / The number of plants will decrease.
3rd Grade Native Species Question / How can you prevent the spread of invasive species when you are hiking in another state?
3rd Grade Native Species Answer / Clean your shoes well.
2nd Grade Parasitism Question / Emerald ash borer is a beetle that was found in Ohio in The larvae feed on the tree, often killing it. The ash borer is the __________ and the tree is the ______.
2nd Grade Parasitism Answer / The ash borer is the parasite and the tree is the host.
2nd Grade Bats Question / Make a prediction about how many Indiana Bats there will be in the environment in Year 5 if the pattern continues.
2nd Grade Bats Answer / Any number between
1st Grade Endangered Species Question / The Indiana bat is an endangered species in Ohio. What is most likely to happen to the bat population if people make laws to protect it?
1st Grade Endangered Species Answer / The bat population will increase.
1st Grade Conclusions Question / The bar graph shows the number of birds in an environment over a four-year drought. / What conclusion can be drawn from the information in the bar graph? / The bar graph shows the number of birds in an environment over a four-year drought. / What conclusion can be drawn from the information in the bar graph?
1st Grade Conclusions Answer / The drought is causing the bird population to decrease.
Million Dollar Question Grade Level Topic Invasive Parasites
1,000,000 Question / Describe two ways the emerald ash borer will influence the food web? Use specific examples from the diagram (2 points).
1,000,000 Answer / There will be less food available to the caterpillars and finches, so they will decrease. / With fewer herbivores, snakes and hawks will decrease or move away. / There will be less food available to the caterpillars and finches, so they will decrease. / With fewer herbivores, snakes and hawks will decrease or move away.
