Buildings and Earthquakes
Conditions of Use:

Rating

Earthquakes happen when forces in the Earth cause violent shaking of the ground. Earthquakes can be very destructive to buildings and other man-made structures. Design and build various types of buildings, then test your buildings for earthquake resistance using a shake table and a force sensor that measures how hard a force pushes or pulls your building.

Explore a NetLogo model of populations of rabbits, grass, and weeds. First, adjust the model to start with a different rabbit population size. Then adjust model variables, such as how fast the plants or weeds grow, to get more grass than weeds. Change the amount of energy the grass or weeds provide to the rabbits and the food preference. Use line graphs to monitor the effects of changes you make to the model, and determine which settings affect the proportion of grass to weeds when rabbits eat both.

Conflicting Selection Pressures
Conditions of Use:

Rating

Explore how populations change over time in a NetLogo model of sheep and grass. Experiment with the initial number of sheep, the sheep birthrate, the amount of energy sheep gain from the grass, and the rate at which the grass re-grows. Remove sheep that have a particular trait (better teeth) from the population, then watch what happens to the sheep teeth trait in the population as a whole. Consider conflicting selection pressures to make predictions about other instances of natural selection.

The Day Jimmy‰Ûªs Boa Taught Cause and Effect
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

This lesson introduces the concept of cause and effect with Trinka Hakes Noble's books about Jimmy and his boa constrictor. Each lesson begins with the teacher reading a new story about Jimmy and his boa and the chaos they bring to each place they visit. Class discussions about each event and its cause are followed by tasks for the students to help illustrate understanding of the concept. Students create cause-and-effect pictures, puzzles, and flow charts as they explore the genre. As a culminating activity, students write their own book with causes and effects, which are assessed with a rubric.

Experiment with Ecosystems
Conditions of Use:

Rating

The goal of this activity is to give students the opportunity to “think like a scientist,” making hypotheses, doing experiments, making observations, and analyzing data. Students are encouraged to construct and conduct their own experiments with ecosystems comprising grass, rabbits, and up to two predator species: hawks and foxes. (Evolution Readiness Activity 10 of 10.)

Mixed Review, Application, and Design
Conditions of Use:

Rating

This seminar consists of a mixed review, application, and design of all the text structures you have learned in the past; Descriptive/Spatial, Compare/Contrast, Chronological Order, Sequence, Cause/Effect, and Problem/Solution. You will be exposed to texts using all of the text structures. In addition, you will be further reminded of how text structure is applied to real life situations. Lastly, you will be given more opportunities to design your own texts which correlate to the text structures you have practiced and learned.StandardsCC.1.2.5.E Use text structure, in and among texts, to interpret information.

The concept of interdependence in an ecosystem and its effect on the evolution of populations is further explored through a model of a dam. Students build a dam in the middle of the field, dividing the ecosystem in half to illustrate the affects of geographic isolation. They watch as the grass and then the rabbit populations in that region shift to one variant in the population. When students remove the dam, they observe the ecosystem slowly return to its original state.
