MARTONEN- ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE LESSON PLANS- 4/22/19

HS-LS2-1 Use mathematical and/or computational representations to support explanations of factors that affect carrying capacity of ecosystems at different scales.

HS-LS2-2 Use mathematical representations to support and revise explanations based on evidence about factors affecting biodiversity and populations in ecosystems of different scales.

HS-LS2-6 Evaluate the claims, evidence, and reasoning that the complex interactions in ecosystems maintain relatively consistent numbers and types of organisms in stable conditions, but changing conditions may result in a new

ecosystem. **

HS-LS2-7 Design, evaluate, and refine a solution for reducing the impacts of human activities on the environment and biodiversity.* **

HS-LS2-8 Evaluate the evidence for the role of group behavior on individual and species’ chances to survive and reproduce.

HS-LS4-6 Create or revise a simulation to test a solution to mitigate adverse impacts of human activity on biodiversity. **

HS-LS2-5 Develop a model to illustrate the role of photosynthesis and cellular respiration in the cycling of carbon among the biosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and geosphere. **

MONDAY-

TUESDAY-

1. Introduction to human population- notes and journal entry on chapter 13.1-3 notes.

2. Human population video

3. Lab 1- observation #4 on yeast population-each day this week

WEDNESDAY-

1. Lab 1- yeast population growth lab- this will run for entire week and observations will be made each day-observation #4

2. Lab 3- human population growth- Students will graph current human population data and graph 2 predicted scenarios of population growth. Students will then answer analysis questions for a grade.

3. Ch 13 review sheet due

THURSDAY-

1. Methane field trip- 8 am- 10 am

FRIDAY-

1. Verso paper field trip- 8 am- 11 am
