  • 9. [Student Page]Teacher Page Introduction (Teacher) Title This lesson was created as a an assignment for Introduction my educational technology class at The University Learners of Akron. The goal was to create our own Standards Webquest is our subject area that we could possibly use one day in the classroom. Process Resources This lesson is intended for students to start to Evaluation learn how to research simple information on theTeacher Script internet. They will allow the students to broaden Conclusion their knowledge about organisms and their environment, as well as including a creative/artistic aspect when creating their signs. The students will also have to work in groups to develop a food web of the ecosystem of their choice and analyze what would happen if each of their organisms were removed. This aligns with several of the science standards for the 5th grade level. Credits
  • 10. [Student Page]Teacher Page Learners (Teacher) Title This lesson is intended for 5th grade science. It Introduction involves some art and language art aspects upon Learners completion. The learners will need to have some Standards background knowledge of ecosystem mechanics and familiar animals. They will also need to know Process how to navigate an internet site. Based on how Resources much detail is added to the requirements of the Evaluation content the students are to produce, thisTeacher Script assignment can be adjusted to lower or younger Conclusion grade levels. Credits
  • 11. [Student Page]Teacher Page Curriculum Standards (Teacher) Title Science Standards Addressed Introduction Learners • Food webs can be used to identify relationships Standards between organisms in an ecosystem. Process Resources This assignment will also require group discussion Evaluation when students have to come to conclusions aboutTeacher Script relationships between each of their animals and Conclusion their ecosystem. They will also need to work creatively when making their signs. The activity will help them connect their new internet researching skills to the topics in the class. Credits
