1 Renewable and Nonrenewable Resources Plants are Important Basic Needs Food Chains/ Food Webs Man and Alien 300

2 Question Column What is the best thing to do with a used plastic bottle? A.Recycle B.Reuse C.Throw Away D.Litter

3 Answer Column A. Recycle

4 Question Column It is important to recycle nonrenewable resources because they are_________?

5 Answer Column Limited or Scarce

6 Question Column Which is a list of nonrenewable resources? a.oil, water, coal b.minerals, lumber, plastic c.crops, lions, air d.aluminum, silver, petroleum

7 Answer Column D. aluminum, silver, petroleum Resources that can not be replenished (grown again) in your lifetime.

8 Question Column Water is a renewable resource because the Water Cycle shows us that it will never run out. Use the diagram to answer the question. What processes are happening at numbers 3 and 4(in that order)? a.condensation, precipitation b.evaporation, condensation c.evaporation, precipitation d.precipitation, evaporation

9 Answer Column C. evaporation, precipitation

10 Question Column What might hurt an ecosystem? a. reducing, reusing and recycling b. using busses, airplanes, and cars c.planting trees d.hunting only during regulated seasons

11 Answer Column b. using busses, airplanes, and cars

12 Question Column Plants are classified as… a.Consumers b.Producers c.Decomposers d.Scavengers

13 Answer Column a.Producers

14 Question Column During photosynthesis, plants take in… a.Carbon dioxide and oxygen b.Oxygen and sugar c.Sunlight and carbon dioxide d.Water and chlorophyll

15 Answer Column c. Sunlight and carbon dioxide Carbon dioxide

16 Question Column During photosynthesis, plants produce… a.Carbon dioxide and oxygen b.Oxygen and sugar c.Sunlight and carbon dioxide d.Water and chlorophyll

17 Answer Column b. oxygen and sugar

18 Question Column Which shows how energy is transformed during the process of photosynthesis? a.oxygen energy thermal energy b.chemical energy food energy c.thermal energy light energy d.light energy chemical energy

19 Answer Column d. light energy chemical energy CHEMICAL ENERGY LIGHT ENERGY

20 Question Column How do carnivores get their energy from plants?

21 Answer Column When herbivores eat plants, they receive some of the energy that plants make. Then, carnivores receive some energy from herbivores when the carnivores eat the herbivores.

22 Question Column Name four out of the six basic needs of a hawk.

23 Answer Column food water air waste disposal shelter space

24 Question Column Identify the best ecosystem for a woodpecker. Then describe a feature of this ecosystem which helps the woodpecker survive.

25 Answer Column Ecosystem: Forest Feature: Trees

26 Question Column Identify the best ecosystem for a grasshopper. Then describe a feature of this ecosystem which helps the grasshopper survive.

27 Answer Column Ecosystem: Grasslands Feature: Grass

28 Question Column The South Chagrin Reservation Metroparks can support a population of 5,000 rabbits. One year the population soars to 9,000. Identify the carrying capacity for rabbits in this forest ecosystem. Then, identify one way that could limit the rabbit population in the future.

29 Answer Column Carrying Capacity: 5,000 Limiting Factors: predators food shelter/space

30 Question Column Describe two ways that a drought might affect a population of prairie dogs.

31 Answer Column Population would decrease b/c a)Food (grass) would be scarce - dying. b)Lack of water – basic need for drinking and plants may not grow as well

32 Question Column What do arrows represent in a food chain or a food web?

33 Answer Column The flow or the transfer of energy

34 Question Column Which food chain is correct? A B C

35 Answer Column B

36 Question Column Create a food chain using words and arrows with the following organisms: ~ snake ~grass ~frog ~grasshopper ~berries~fly ~ snake~rabbit

37 Answer Column grass grasshopper frog snake or berries rabbits snake

38 Question Column What level of an energy pyramid has the most energy? A C D E B

39 Answer Column E

40 Question Column Draw a food web using the organisms listed below.. ~ fox~grass~mice ~prairie dog~wolf~flowers ~rabbit~hawk~coyote

41 Answer Column Your food web must include at least one producer, arrows that are facing towards the eater and are overlapping somewhere. See example below.

42 Question Column Identify one synonym for the word beneficial. Identify one synonym for the word detrimental.

43 Answer Column BeneficialDetrimental goodbad positivenegative helpfulharmful favorableinjurious

44 Question Column A nearby marsh is home to many species of birds, turtles, frogs and algae. A group of kids decide that it would be fun to collect as many frogs as possible for their classroom science aquariums. Identify a detrimental effect of the kids’ actions.

45 Answer Column Detrimental Effects: predators of frogs will decrease due to lack of food frogs’ food source will overpopulate captured frogs might die due to lack of basic needs (shelter)

46 Question Column Often times, bad things happen to ecosystems as a result of human actions. Identify one beneficial effect of the Exxon Valdez oil spill.

47 Answer Column Beneficial Effects laws/regulations were passed to make shipping oil safer organizations were set up to prevent and aid future oil spills

48 Question Column An alien species is an organism that is non-native to a ecosystem. The introduction of an alien species can often cause detrimental effects to an ecosystem. Think about all of the alien species we have studied. Name 2 detrimental effects that an alien species can have on an ecosystem.

49 Answer Column Possible Answers alien species could overcrowd the ecosystem and push out native species alien species could overpopulate and cause prey populations to decrease bring disease to the food web other reasonable answers will be discussed

50 Question Column What was Rachel Carson’s most notable contribution to ecology?

51 Answer Column Rachel Carson opened the world’s eyes to the dangers of using DDT on crops. She noticed that DDT was making bald eagle eggs fragile and many eggs would break before hatching. DDT was finally banned in 1972!
