In this activity students investigate bioluminescence, which is light given off by living organisms and is common among creatures of the sea. Students discover that in the deep sea, where little or no sunlight penetrates, a variety of fishes live out their lives dependent upon bioluminescence, and that among these fishes, light organs have evolved to serve a number of purposes. Students will learn ... Full description.

In this activity students will examine sections of cut trees. They will observe and describe the difference between early and late wood, make a guess about the age of the tree, determine the actual age by counting the rings, and identify the rings that represent the years the student, the student's parents, and the student's grandparents were born, or years of historical importance. In addition, students ... Full description.

This tutorial introduces students to the concept of animal ecology. The first section explains the different ways animals use camouflage. There is also a discussion of how the process of decay breaks organic matter down into nutrients, and how simple aquatic organisms (algae, zooplankton) provide a food source for larger organisms. The concept of food chains is introduced, and land-based and aquatic ... Full description.

This tutorial explores animal adaptations by investigating the examples of animals commonly found in the natural environments of British Columbia. The discussion covers various ways in which plants and animals develop special features (adaptations) that allow them to survive in their environments, such as flight, echolocation, thermreceptors, thick fur, antlers, and others. A quiz and glossary are ... Full description.

This tutorial explores the adaptation of plants in their local environments by investigating examples of species native to British Columbia. Examples include adaptations such as large size (Sequoia trees), long life (bristlecone pines), fast growth (aspens), and thick bark (Ponderosa pines). There is an explanation of how plants absorb carbon dioxide give off oxygen, and draw nutrients and water from ... Full description.

This tutorial introduces students to the concept of co-adaptation and presents examples of organisms developing behaviours or physical characteristics that help them work together. Examples include the re-use of old woodpecker nests by Boreal owls, the prolific breeding behaviour of voles (providing a food source for predators without threatening their own population), and the caching of whitebark ...

This tutorial introduces students to global weather patterns and how they affect the kinds of trees and plants that grow in different latitudes of the Earth. The discussion covers the tropics and the lush rainforests that live there, temperate forests in the mid-latitudes, and boreal forests in the far north. There is also a description of how treeless areas occur in various climate zones (desert, ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
In the three-dimensional ocean, some creatures live on the sea floor, but many live and move about in the water column. Having a body form that is hard to see or detect helps many ocean dwellers avoid being eaten by hungry predators. However, many predators have evolved some of the same adaptations which help them approach their prey without being seen. During this activity students will learn that ... Full description.

During this activity students will learn that the tiny animals and plants of the ocean's plankton are the basis of ocean food chains and that planktonic plants are called phytoplankton while planktonic animals are known as zooplankton. They will also discover that these plants, like plants on land, use chlorophyll to capture the energy of the sun to make food and release oxygen in the process known ... Full description.
