Greetings guys & gals!
Well this was quite an interesting week with 2 days off due to the snow that took the South by storm. Today we tried to pick up right where we left off without skipping a beat. We honed in on types of interactions in ecosystems, specifically mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism. We took guided notes, looked at some interesting examples, and watched some cool clips to explore this topic. Because we were pressed for time, students were assigned a worksheet as homework.
Here is a sample clip we watched:
Here’s the rundown for today’s materials:
1) Guided Notes: 8.L.3.2 – Interactions in an Ecosystem Guided Notes
2) Class PowerPoint:8.L.3.2 – Jan 31 – Symbiotic Relationships
3) Types of Interactions Homework*:8.L.3.2 – Symbiotic Relationships Practice
*I’m not sure who originally created the examples for this worksheet but they are fantastic!
This homework is DUE MONDAY 2/3/14 – Make sure yours is complete!
Check out these links that have GREAT practices/examples for organism interactions:
Have a happy and fun [SuperBowl] weekend!
