You are currently in your regular groups of four. First, you will split up into subgroups of two to begin this project. Two of you will be assigned the role of Biological Scientists. The other two people will be assigned the role Environmental Scientists. You will regroup for the last part of your assignment. Before you divide into your subgroups, please take a moment to view STEP TWO and the Group Questions attachment.

Marine Fisheries Food Webs Food Webs All our ideas of life in the sea are rapidly changing. The plants and animals described on this page are mostly large. Yet, the marine food web is dominated by astronomical numbers of micro, nano, and pico plankton described in the chapter on the Microbial Food Webs . We know little about these organisms.
NOVA joins four scientists in their global pursuit of clues to a massive volcanic eruption that appears to have had a devastating impact on the Earth 75,000 years ago. And if they're right, the ancient supervolcano—and others like it—may someday reawaken, with catastrophic consequences for our modern world. Now, an array of clues—scattered ashes and ice cores, tiny ocean creatures and steaming lakeside rocks—are brought together to solve the "Mystery of the Megavolcano." The destructive power unleashed by supervolcanoes goes far beyond that of any eruption in recorded human history.

Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making Students use critical thinking skills to plan and conduct research, manage projects, solve problems, and make informed decisions using appropriate digital tools and resources. Students: identify and define authentic problems and significant questions for investigation. plan and manage activities to develop a solution or complete a project. collect and analyze data to identify solutions and/or make informed decisions. use multiple processes and diverse perspectives to explore alternative solutions Scenarios Select Edit This Page to comment on which of the following scenarios best represents the standard that refers to Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making. How would you modify the scenario to better represent this standard?

Geographic Range Each species on our planet occupies a unique geographic range where the members of its various populations live, feed, and reproduce. Some species have extensive geographic ranges that stretch over several continents. Species with such distributions are known as cosmopolitan species .
I know, I know, the teacher's not happy unless we learn new words. Here are two pretty important ones to start us off on our journey into photosynthesis, food chains, and energy. Autotroph - Some living organisms can make their own food from inorganic material (stuff that does not come from living things) and sunlight.
Mercury's elliptical orbit takes the small planet as close as 29 million miles (47 million kilometers) and as far as 43 million miles (70 million kilometers) from the sun. If one could stand on the scorching surface of Mercury when it is at its closest point to the sun, the sun would appear almost three times as large as it does when viewed from Earth. Temperatures on Mercury's surface can reach 800 degrees Fahrenheit (430 degrees Celsius).
Hooked on Glogster: Posters 2.0 Even though my five children have long since completed elementary and middle school, many recollections from their school years linger in my memory. Take Project Posters , for example.
