Page history last edited by nazrul_hadi_jamali@... 11 years, 6 months ago

Chapter 15: Ecology

 

Overview

This project is intended for Secondary 2 Science students to study about ecology in various ecosystems by using information available on the Internet to create a wiki page containing the following:

  • Information on the ecosystem's habitat by examining physical factors such as light, temperature, water, air, pH, mineral salts and salinity
  • Classification of living organisms in the ecosystem into three main types: Producers, consumers and decomposers
  • Construct a food web connecting at least 8 living organisms from all three categories.
  • Identify and give at least one example of interrelationship among various organisms in a community such as 
    • predator-prey relationship
    • parasitism
    • mutualism

 

Objectives

At the end of this project students will be able to:

  • Explain the importance of physical factors to the life of organisms living in different habitats.
  • Explain the terms habitat, population, community, producers, consumers and decomposers.
  • Identify a habitat and some organisms associated with it.
  • Show an understanding of the interrelationship among the various organisms in a community.
  • Construct a food web in a specific habitat.
