This lesson contains 3D models. Some of them are available after a free registration to the Lifeliqe app.

 

NGSS and CCSS aligned.

 

The lesson is dedicated to the description of abiotic and biotic factors which influence in the process of species adaptation.

 

Methodology:

• Discussion

• Reading

• Lecture

• Experiment

• Work with audiovisual materials

• Information search

 

The principal learning objectives are:

• Understand the differences between biotic and abiotic factors.

• Understand the principle of adaptation caused by biotic and abiotic factors.

Draw evidence from informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.
Provide a concluding statement or section that follows from and supports the information or explanation presented (e.g., articulating implications or the significance of the topic).
Establish and maintain a formal style and objective tone while attending to the norms and conventions of the discipline in which they are writing.
Use precise language and domain-specific vocabulary to manage the complexity of the topic and convey a style appropriate to the discipline and context as well as to the expertise of likely readers.
Use varied transitions and sentence structures to link the major sections of the text, create cohesion, and clarify the relationships among ideas and concepts.
Develop the topic with well-chosen, relevant, and sufficient facts, extended definitions, concrete details, quotations, or other information and examples appropriate to the audience’s knowledge of the topic.
Introduce a topic and organize ideas, concepts, and information to make important connections and distinctions; include formatting (e.g., headings), graphics (e.g., figures, tables), and multimedia when useful to aiding comprehension.
Introduce a topic and organize complex ideas, concepts, and information so that each new element builds on that which precedes it to create a unified whole; include formatting (e.g., headings), graphics (e.g., figures, tables), and multimedia when useful to aiding comprehension.
Provide a concluding statement or section that follows from and supports the information or explanation provided (e.g., articulating implications or the significance of the topic).
Use precise language, domain-specific vocabulary and techniques such as metaphor, simile, and analogy to manage the complexity of the topic; convey a knowledgeable stance in a style that responds to the discipline and context as well as to the expertise of likely readers.
Use varied transitions and sentence structures to link the major sections of the text, create cohesion, and clarify the relationships among complex ideas and concepts.
Develop the topic thoroughly by selecting the most significant and relevant facts, extended definitions, concrete details, quotations, or other information and examples appropriate to the audience’s knowledge of the topic.
Integrate and evaluate multiple sources of information presented in diverse formats and media (e.g., quantitative data, video, multimedia) in order to address a question or solve a problem.
Synthesize information from a range of sources (e.g., texts, experiments, simulations) into a coherent understanding of a process, phenomenon, or concept, resolving conflicting information when possible.
Construct an explanation based on evidence for how natural selection leads to adaptation of populations.
Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of science and technical texts, attending to the precise details of explanations or descriptions.
Write informative/explanatory texts, including the narration of historical events, scientific procedures/experiments, or technical processes.
