Teacher's Guide, Ecology, Grade 10.
Yadkin Valley Economic Development District, Inc., Walnut Cove, NC.
This teacher's guide has been constructed to assist in developing and implementing a life science course with an environment/ecological unit for Grade 10. Designed primarily for use with other science units, it offers numerous multidisciplinary activities which emphasize involvement in problem-solving through open-ended investigation rather than problem-doing only. Activity ideas range from field investigations of temperature and humidity, flying insects, trees, seed dispersal, and animal habitat to discussions of ecological succession at the community level; from a semester ecology project about ponds, data collection from soil studies, and ecology and natural resources projects to analysis of the population explosion, bird and plant relationships, and conservation practices. Resource material compiled in the final section gives an annotated film list and sources for free and inexpensive materials oriented to the tenth grade level. Related documents are SE 016 626 and SE 016 627. (BL)
