Please watch the EdPuzzle video for HW this weekend.

I STRONGLY encourage you to take notes throughout this video. Do your best to recreate the flow-chart that he builds. Taking notes is an extremely important skill and one that many of you said you wanted to work on - this video provides a great opportunity to practice the note-taking technique of "flow-charts".

9/24-9/25 - 1.1 Ecosystems - Competition and Niche Partitioning

This activity is about standards 1.1.2 and 1.1.3. There was a HW Video (EdPuzzle) on 1.1.1. This activity will take 2 days to complete. (you will not have to do it for homework, only during class time!) This activity can be found by clicking the link next to standard 1.1 in the virtual classroom page for Unit 1. I have also attached it to this post.

You will open the PDF and type your answers directly onto the PDF. You will then save it and upload the PDF with your answers to be submitted. If typing on the PDF does not work, you will have to just type your answers to the questions on a separate Google Doc and then submit that.

For 9/24 - Do the introduction and Module 1. That will allow you to answer questions 1-9 on the worksheet.
What you do not finish in class time must be finished for HW.
For 9/25 - We will finish with Module 2.

This is the link to the website: https://www.biointeractive.org/classroom-resources/niche-partitioning-and-dna-metabarcoding that has both the activity and the student worksheet.
