Interactions and Ecosystems
Ecosystems develop and are maintained by natural processes and are affected by human action. To foster an understanding of ecosystems, this unit develops student awareness of ecosystem components and interactions, as well as natural cycles and processes of change. Building on this knowledge, students investigate human impacts and engage in studies that involve environmental monitoring and research. By reflecting on their findings, students become aware of the intended and unintended consequences of human activity, and recognize the need for responsible decision making and action.
- How do humans activities affect ecosystems?
- What methods can we use to observe and monitor changes in ecosystems?
- How do we assess the impacts of our actions on an ecosystem?
