Unit Overview – Interactions Among Living Things

Unit overview: This unit will lead students in understanding that the sun is the primary source of energy, and that organisms depend on one another as well as their environment for survival. Students will be able to use and create a food web to demonstrate that matter and energy are transferred and recycled among organisms and their environment.

Refer to GPS Framework for acceptable tasks.

General Concept Overview – food webs, energy pyramids, recycling of matter, carbon and nitrogen cycles, symbiotic/competitive relationships, biotic and abiotic factors

Focus Content Standard

Elements

S7L1a. Demonstrate the process for the development of a dichotomous key.

S7L1b. Classify organisms based on physical characteristics using a dichotomous key of the six kingdom system (archaebacteria, eubacteria, protists, fungi, plants, and animals). S7L4a. Demonstrate in a food web that matter is transferred from one organism to another and can recycle between organisms and their environments.

S7L4b. Explain in a food web that sunlight is the source of energy and that this energy moves from organism to organism.

S7L4c. Recognize that changes in environmental conditions can affect the survival

  • S7L1. Students will investigate the diversity of living organisms and how they can be compared scientifically.
  • S7L4. Students will examine the dependence of organisms on one another and their environments.

Essential Questions

Characteristics of Science

S7CS1. Students will explore of the importance of curiosity, honesty, openness, and skepticism in science and will exhibit these traits in their own efforts to understand how the world works.

S7CS2. Students will use standard safety practices for all classroom laboratory and field investigations.

S7CS3. Students will have the computation and estimation skills necessary for analyzing data and following scientific explanations.

S7CS4. Students will use tools and instruments for observing, measuring, and manipulating equipment and materials in scientific activities.

S7CS6. Students will communicate scientific ideas and activities clearly.

S7CS7. Students will question scientific claims and arguments effectively.

S7CS8. Students will investigate the characteristics of scientific knowledge and how that knowledge is achieved.

S7CS10. Students will enhance reading in all curriculum areas

  • Essential Questions:
  • Where does the energy in all ecosystems come from?
  • Why are there fewer animals than plants?
  • How is energy recycled between organisms and the environment?
  • How are food chains, food webs, and energy pyramids related?
  • How do relationships among organisms affect the ecosystem and its food webs?
  • What is the effect of biotic and abiotic factors on an ecosystem?

S7L5a. Explain how physical characteristics of organism have changed over successive generations.

  • S7L5. Students will examine the evolution of living organism through inherited characteristics that promote the survival of organisms and survival of successive generations of their offspring.
