Inquiries in Science®: Simulating Succession

$79.25 - $233.00

Grades 9–12. Students set up and observe an ecosystem advancing through the stages of ecological succession. They then use these observations to track changes and predict the outcome of their ecosystem. As a final activity, students modify their simulation to represent a disturbance and show how it affects the successional sequence. Part of the Inquiries in Science® series.

Description

  • Create a minipond ecosystem using live organisms
  • Show the process of succession in a short period of time
  • Explore factors that influence succession in a local environment

Grades 9–12. Students set up and observe an ecosystem advancing through the stages of ecological succession. They then use these observations to track changes and predict the outcome of their ecosystem. As a final activity, students modify their simulation to represent a disturbance and show how it affects the successional sequence. Kit includes lab supplies (enough for 30 students working in groups) plus teacher's manual. Kit Refill replenishes all perishable materials; price includes shipping and handling. Note: Order the kit refill with the perishable materials included or with a voucher to request the perishables later at your convenience. Contact us or return the voucher at least 2 weeks prior to requested delivery date to ensure prompt arrival of materials. Multi Class Equipment Set provides additional lab supplies so you can use the kit in 1 additional class section per day.

Note: Order an extra kit refill for each additional class section. For example, to teach the kit in 3 environmental science sections on the same day, purchase 1 kit, 2 kit refills, and 2 multi class equipment sets. Part of the Inquiries in Science® series.
