Build UP Grades 6 and 7

Build UP Your Life Sciences for Grades 6 &7 Program

Workshop description

Each participant will receive an orientation to two use-it-tomorrow projects:
Invertebrate Adaptations (gr. 6) and Food Webs in Ecosystems (gr.7) both of which address grade-specific Life Science PLO’s. During the workshop we will show examples of scaffolding, differentiation, critical thinking & ongoing assessment to make the science project/research process both engaging and manageable for teachers and their students.

Workshop handouts



Here are links to the teacher's resource and all student handouts for the Grade 6 and 7 projects. I have uploaded the resource in sections.

Grade Seven Project: Food Webs/Ecosystems

Background information: I have also posted a food web article and a food web poster project in the Grade 7 Life Science link on the Science wiki. These tasks provide a basic introduction to some of the basic concepts explored in the Food Web Project.
