Pond Life Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Dipping Minibeasts

Pond Life Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Dipping Minibeasts

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of 'Pond Lfie'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Which organism(s) in the food web is a producer? Consumer? 13. What might happen if you removed an apex predator from the food web? 14. Choose one food chain in the food web. Name all of the organisms starting with the producer and ending with the highest level consumer. 15. In an ecosystem, what might happen if you have more carnivores than herbivores? 16. What trophic level do humans occupy? Explain your reasoning. There will be an image of an ecological pyramid to answer question 17 17. Label the ecological pyramid with the following terms: tertiary consumer, herbivore, heterotroph, autotroph, primary consumer, apex predator, producer, and secondary consumer.

IB DP Environmental Systems & Societies - IA Preparation - Instrument Accuracy Pack

IB DP Environmental Systems & Societies - IA Preparation - Instrument Accuracy Pack

Internal Assessment Preparation Activity on Instrument Accuracies This activity is designed to help students determine and distinguish between different methods used to determine instrument accuracies of analogue and digital measuring devices they will encounter in their Internal Assessment (IA) activities. They should be encouraged to refer to this activity on a regular basis to help them complete the Results, Analysis and Conclusions (RAC) assessment criteria. This resource uses data examples from typical ESS activities. Document Length: 12 pages Duration: 1 - 2 lessons Includes: - Background information to help students correctly process and present instrument accuracies from different instrument types. - Worksheet exercise - Teacher notes (on duration, preparation, resources and considerations) - Answers to worksheet exercise

IB DP Environmental Systems & Societies - IA Preparation - Experimental Errors Pack

IB DP Environmental Systems & Societies - IA Preparation - Experimental Errors Pack

Internal Assessment Preparation Activity on Experimental Error This activity is designed to help students determine, distinguish between and process correctly the different types of experimental error they will encounter when sampling, collecting, recording and processing data for their Internal Assessment (IA). There are a variety of sources of errors that can occur when recording instrument readings contributing to uncertainties in processing data and resulting in drawing unreliable conclusions. These are defined either as human or experimental errors. Both need to be accounted for (measured) to help students determine the accuracy and reliability of your results. Document length: 16 pages Duration: 1 - 2 lessons Includes: - Background information to help students distinguish and assess the contribution of human and instrument error using data examples specifically from this course. - Worksheet exercise - Teacher notes (on duration, preparation, resources and considerations) - Answers to worksheet exercise

IB DP Environmental Systems & Societies - Topic 5.1 Measuring Abiotic Soil Properties

IB DP Environmental Systems & Societies - Topic 5.1 Measuring Abiotic Soil Properties

Lab activity Students are introduced to 3 different methods to classify soils and determine their moisture and organic (carbon) content. Soil classification uses the gravimetric method of placing soil samples in glass gas flasks or graduated cylinders with water, shaking it well and letting the particles fall out of suspension and determine boundaries between sand, silt and clay. These then are plotted on tri-linear soil classification diagrams. Soil and organic (carbon) content are determined similarly in that the percent difference between wet - dry and with - without carbon can be determined. Document contains a description of these 3 methods and includes tri-linear soil classification diagram.
