6 ) Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence regarding how resource availability impacts individual organisms as well as populations of organisms within an ecosystem.

11 ) Analyze and interpret data to predict how environmental conditions (e.g., weather, availability of nutrients, location) and genetic factors (e.g., selective breeding of cattle or crops) influence the growth of organisms (e.g., drought decreasing plant growth, adequate supply of nutrients for maintaining normal plant growth, identical plant seeds growing at different rates in different weather conditions, fish growing larger in large ponds than in small ponds).

Title: Wanted: Dead or Alive?
Description:

Humans heavily rely on a wide variety of living and non-living things. This 7th grade life science education module is designed to provide a unique approach to learning what is actually considered dead or alive, and how we interact differently with living and non-living things.  This lesson plan is designed with the “student in mind”, and our goal is to reach all the various learning styles.  It will meet the students where they are and assist them in understanding a new scientific concept. Alexandria Bufford-Tuskegee University, helped with the experiment write-up and testing. Gerald Griffin-Hope College, and De'Shayla Chappell, Adrinece Beard, Angela Player-Tuskegee University produced the "bacteria vs viruses" powerpoint.

4 ) Gather evidence to support how plants and animals provide for their needs by altering their environment (e.g., tree roots breaking a sidewalk to provide space, red fox burrowing to create a den to raise young, humans growing gardens for food and building roads for transportation).

5 ) Plan and carry out an investigation, using one variable at a time (e.g., water, light, soil, air), to determine the growth needs of plants.

9 ) Examine evidence to support an argument that the internal and external structures of plants (e.g., thorns, leaves, stems, roots, colored petals, xylem, phloem) and animals (e.g., heart, stomach, lung, brain, skin) function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction.

Title: Hopping Ahead of Climate Change
URL: http://sciencenetlinks.com/lessons/hopping-ahead-climate-change/
Description:

The purpose of this lesson is for students to explore how living things are affected by changes in the environment by studying the case of the snowshoe hare and how the species has been impacted by climate change. This lesson uses a book called Hopping Ahead of Climate Change, written by Sneed B. Collard III. This book uses snowshoe hares as a microcosmic example of how the changes in climate, also known as global warming, can have a direct impact on a single species, and how this singular effect changes an ecosystem.

Title: Brine Shrimp 2: Brine Shrimp Survival
URL: http://sciencenetlinks.com/lessons/brine-shrimp-2-brine-shrimp-survival/
Description:

In this lesson, students will develop an understanding of how the growth and survival of an organism depends on physical conditions. This is accomplished by designing an artificial environment in which brine shrimp can thrive. This lesson is the second of a two-part series on brine shrimp. In Brine Shrimp 1: Hatching Brine Shrimp, students determined the optimum salinity for hatching. In this lesson, students will raise brine shrimp, designing an artificial environment in which they can survive.

Title: Brine Shrimp 1: Hatching Brine Shrimp
URL: http://sciencenetlinks.com/lessons/brine-shrimp-1-hatching-brine-shrimp/
Description:

In this lesson, students will develop an understanding of how the growth and survival of an organism (brine shrimp) depends on physical conditions. This is accomplished by designing an experiment to determine the optimum salinity of water needed to hatch brine shrimp. This lesson is the first of a two-part series on brine shrimp. The second lesson in this series is Brine Shrimp 2: Brine Shrimp Survival.

Title: Skin: The Behavior and Health Connection
URL: http://sciencenetlinks.com/lessons/skin-the-behavior-and-health-connection/
Description:

In this lesson, students become more aware of how their personal behavior and the environment can have a considerable impact on their health in general, particularly the health of their skin.
