• Ecology Booklet Part 1 Directions: You will be constructing an Ecology Booklet (like an Encyclopedia!) that will include everything from biomes to natural resources. You can either make a paper booklet by hand or you can make a PowerPoint presentation. Please make your projects as neat, detailed, colorful as possible! 

    PART ONE: Biomes (8 Total Pages)- You must research and create a page for each biome; one page per biome makes eight pages total. Please include pages describing the following biomes: 

    • Shallow Seas & Deep Oceans  
    • Seasonal Forests  
    • Tundra 
    • Jungles  
    • Grasslands  
    • Deserts  
    • Freshwater  
    • Caves  

     

    Your research for each biome must include:  

    • Flora (plant life- minimum of 2 examples)  
    • Fauna (animal life- minimum of 3 examples)  
    • Climate (temperature, elevation, precipitation) 
    • Landscapes (generalizations of landforms- What does it look like? Include a picture of landscape!)  
    • Include how biotic (living) and abiotic (non-living) factors interact in their environment for each biome

Each page needs an illustration for food chains and food webs. Use pages 740-745 in your green science textbook for additional support!

    Classroom expectations 

     

    1. Come to class prepared to learn and with your necessary materials. 
    2. Be respectful, responsible, and safe as you strive to be successful. 
    3. Complete your extensions of learning classwork during the scheduled school day and ask for assistance when appropriate. 

     

    Academic Grades 

    • Classwork/Extension of learning- 70% 
    • Assessments- 30% 

     

    **Grading this year is different, please be aware that you are held accountable for completing your assignments at home and that you return to class prepared and ready to learn. Assignments at home are an extension of our in-class assignments and will be graded as classwork. Any assignments that are missing, incomplete, or ineligible will receive a grade of zero until submitted for a minimum of 70%. 

     

    Extension of learning Assignments 

    Academic instruction this school year is a fluid motion to fit the learning needs of all students while keeping safety as our priority. Students will be receiving academic instruction with their teacher every other day, which leaves students responsible for the continuation of their academic learning when they are at home. Students are responsible for completing academic assignments at home and coming to class with materials and work completed. If students require assistance from their teacher it is their responsibility to contact that teacher through email, Teams, or phone during school hours to get the necessary feedback. Please refer to the COVID-19 Daily Self-Screening Tool prior to the start of every day before leaving home for school.
