Study Resources for Ecosystems Quiz

Hey guys, so all of this stuff that I’m posting here has already been posted on past posts, but I wanted to put it all in one place for you so you don’t have to search around. The quiz will be over the 3 major Ecological models that we’ve covered so far: Food Chains, Food Webs, and Ecological Pyramids. Make sure that you can use and explain all of these models using the vocabulary that we’ve been covering.

Energy Stations Lab Resources & Videos

Here are the materials for reviewing your Energy Stations handouts over the weekend. REMEMBER that you have to have sections I, II, and III COMPLETED for each lab station that you and your group members did by Monday. If you did not visit a station then you do not need to fill in that station on your handout. The directions for each section are listed below and a link to the Energy Stations Lab Handout that you filled out is HERE.

Complete for EACH Station you visited on your Energy Stations Handout:

I. Describe the procedure you followed at the station from beginning to end. Include an
accurate description of the items involved as well as actions performed. (Note: DO NOT
CONFUSE “What you did”/procedure with “What you saw.”)

II. Describe in detail what you observed during this event. (Note: DO NOT CONFUSE “What
you saw/observed” with “What you think is happening.”)

III. Describe the event, from beginning to end, in terms of “ENERGY.” Based on your
observations and prior knowledge, what conclusions can you draw concerning energy and
the events of this station?
