Comprehensive game plan for designing ecosystem

seanmccann72's picture

I believe that this lesson plan for the design of a biodome is comprehensive -- from the initial brainstorm and rubric, to the possible extensions of the project itself. I enjoyed the videos that were attached. The video of the data charts was a good way for students to see how to present graphs and the video on the design part gave a way to picture how to build an ecosystem.

Great lesson plan. Good coupling between different biological elements in: foodchain, watercircuits and biome and ecosystems. Students like the design process. Absolutely sure that it's a workmethod we will use again.
