STANDARD S. 6.5e Students know the number and types of organisms an ecosystem can support depends on the resources available.
LANGUAGE OF THE DISCIPLINE Organism Habitat Biotic factor Abiotic factor Photosynthesis Species Population Community Ecosystem Ecology
ANTICIPATORY SET Hang out a piece of paper with a nature picture on it Have students label each living thing with a red colored pencil Have students label each nonliving thing with a blue colored pencil Answer the following questions: How do the living things depend on the nonliving things? Using a green colored pencil, draw a line that connects the living things with the nonliving things they need.
HABITATS (INPUT) An organism obtains food, water, shelter, and other things it needs to live, grow, and reproduce from its environment. Different environments because different requirements for survival.
BIOTIC FACTORS (INPUT) An organism interacts with both living and nonliving parts of its habitats. You interact with more than just you in your environment. You interact with everything around you. *In your notes: name a biotic factor in your environment.
ABIOTIC FACTORS (INPUT) Water Sunlight Oxygen Temperature Soil
MODEL Abiotic Factors: The nonliving things in an organisms habitat Name 3 Abiotic factors in your habitat 1. 2. 3.
LEVELS OF ORGANIZATION (INPUT) Populations Communities Ecosystems
MODEL Ecological Organization 1. Organism: Prairie Dog 2. Population: Prairie Dog Town 3. Community: All the living things that interact on the prairie. 4. Ecosystem: All the living and nonliving things that interact on the prairie.
MODEL Your Ecological Organization 1. Organism: 2. Population: 3. Community: 4. Ecosystem:
CHECKING FOR UNDERSTANDING What factors are living? What factors are nonliving? List the following in order from smallest to largest level -population, organism, ecosystem, and community.
