In this activity, students will observe the effect that gases resulting from the burning of a fossil fuel have on the heat absorption of air, and determine the ability of phytoplankton to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. This activity is part of a set of three activities, which explore the effects of phytoplankton on water and air. It uses the same experimental set-up as the activity Carbon ... Full description.

This lesson plan is designed to help students understand the interrelatedness of food webs and to see how populations of organisms affect each other. Students assume the roles of the various organisms in the ecosystem; the ones that are dependent upon each other are symbolically connected by lengths of yarn. A materials list, instructions, assessment ideas, and educational standards are provided. Full description.

This activity will help students to understand and graph population change over time according to habitat availability. Students will discover that many factors affect the ability of deer or other wildlife to survive over time. Weather conditions, disease, predators, pollution and habitat destruction are some examples. Habitat is the key to wildlife survival and population size. Habitat is defined ... Full description.

This activity will help students understand algal blooms. They will devise their own experiments to test the effects of nutrients on algal growth, or younger students may follow the steps outlined in a sample activity which is provided. Students will be reminded that they need to have controls and replicates in their experiments. As a result of this activity, students will come to understand the requirements ... Full description.

This activity will help students understand that harmful algal blooms (HABs) can negatively impact organisms in a variety of ways, ranging from cell and tissue damage to death. Students will also realize that toxic blooms are caused by algae. The potent toxins produced by these algae can cause massive fish kills, marine mammal deaths, and human illness. Students will participate in a game based on ... Full description.

This site considers the flora and fauna of the northern regions, which are unique because their environments are extreme and finely balanced. It looks at the major factors involved in the biological evolution of circumpolar ecosystems, such as cold temperatures and low precipitation, lack of solar energy during much of the year, a rich marine environment along an extended coastline, constant and ongoing ...

This activity is designed to define the biotic and abiotic characteristics found in a rocky intertidal ecosystem, to observe interactions between select living organisms and between themselves and their environment, and analyze which environmental and competitive factors may influence the particular pattern of density, diversity, or zonation found at a study site. The transect method and statistical ... Full description.
