Weekly Lesson Plan Form 45 Minute Course

Objectives:



SWBAT identify the
category of organisms and
relative amount of energy
represented by each
trophic level of an energy
pyramid

SWBAT explain how and
why energy changes from
the base to the top of an
energy pyramid.

SWBAT construct an
energy pyramid for a given
food chain and explain
what is depicted in the
diagram


SWBAT name three major
factors that determine
population growth.

SWBAT define
immigration and
emigration.

SWBAT describe
exponential growth and
identify an exponential
growth curve.

SWBAT define carrying
capacity and identify the
(limiting) factors that
contribute to the carrying
capacity for a population

SWBAT predict changes in
population size based on
limiting factors and
carrying capacity in an
ecosystem

SWBAT interpret a growth
curve for a population
What factors determine
how many members of a
species can survive?

SWBAT describe the two
types of limiting factors.

SWBAT predict changes in
population size based on
limiting factors and
carrying capacity in an
ecosystem

SWBAT interpret a growth
curve for a population



What is biodiversity and
why is it important?

What circumstances can
result in extinction?


SWBAT define biodiversity

SWBAT predict the impact
of various environmental
changes based on the
amount of biodiversity in
an ecosystem

SWBAT establish a
relationship between the
amount of biodiversity in
an ecosystem and the
likelihood of extinction of a
species in that ecosystem

SWBAT establish a
relationship between the
amount of biodiversity in
an ecosystem and the
likelihood of extinction of a
species in that ecosystem

SWBAT describe the
effects of invasive species
on the biodiversity of an
ecosystem

SWBAT analyze the
features of major global
biomes.
