The lesson aims to help students understand what a macroinvertebrate is and to synthesize knowledge of macroinvertebrates with other information to make educated guesses about water quality at a given source.
The Unit consists of eight lessons introducing topics such as the Earth's surface, types of soil and landforms, erosion, deposition, human impact on the land and land use issues. At the end of the unit students should be able to understand these concepts and make an assessment of the impact of human activity on the land in their local community and provide evidence that supports their assessment; provide solutions to mitigate any (local to global) community issues associated with land changes/usage; and identify the connections between land changes/usage and the effects on an ecosystem.
The scope of this lesson is to learn about the different properties of water in each state in which it can exist (and recognize the molecular structure of each state), as well as to analyze why magnification is valuable to scientists.
This lesson aims at understand the role of government agencies in monitoring the status of our waters and demonstrating an understanding of the impact that humans have on the marine ecosystems of the world.
The objective of this lesson is to investigate the various types of marine environments (beaches, coral reefs, estuaries, hydrothermal vents, kelp forests, sea grass beds) and to understand the importance of adaptation in the survival of many species.
The main focus of this unit comprising of eight lessons is to clarify concepts such as marine ecosystems, to observe the elements of marine ecosystems (beaches, coral reefs, estuaries, kelp forests, sea grass beds etc.), to analyse the organisms living in a marine ecosystem, discuss water quality and human impact on marine ecosystems.
In order for students to understand the specific features of the Earthâs surface, they must first understand the amount of land on the surface of the Earth.The objectives of this lesson are to help students understand the meaning of âfinite resourcesâ and todiscuss the effects that humans have on the features of the Earthâs surface.
