Post One: Explain Your Issue
It’s time to start your research! See bottom of this post for the details of your research – http://learninghood.ca/2021/04/22/earth-day-and-describing-ecosystems/
- You will collect initial research about your ecological issue and the impact it has on an ecosystem. When you are done, you will have approximately one page of point form notes about your topic in your notebook (you can write more if you find good information). You will also have a list of sources (websites) at the bottom of your notes.
Post Two: Food Chain and Web
- Show the energy flow within your ecosystem by creating a food web which includes 6-10 species. Draw your food web online and insert into your blog. If you are using a pen and paper, then take a picture of it to insert into your blog post.
- Identify one species in the first, second, and third trophic level to show energy transfer. Write the three species in your blog.
- See the following diagram as an example… in the slide deck
Post Three: Limiting Factors
Research some of the limiting factors that impact your chosen ecosystem concern. Your ecological issue will impact some populations in your ecosystem.
Create a blog post describing the effect of human activity on the limiting factors and how they impact the carrying capacity for some living things in your ecosystem. Your post can be written, or presented as an audio recording or other media format. Any media created can be posted on your blog.
Task: Water as a Right
- Research a First Nations, Métis or Inuit water issue in Canada (e.g. lack of potable water, the poisoning of lakes and streams, pollution of drinking water etc.)
- You may select a community of your choice to investigate.
- After researching, think back to responsibilities outlined in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. ,
- Has the government fulfilled its responsibilities or have they failed to uphold them in the particular community you researched?
- What are some concrete actions the government could take so that the water issues in this community could be solved?
