Wildebeest Populations

This activity explores an image of a wildebeest herd on the Serengeti, which serves as a phenomenon for learning about population dynamics and wildlife management.

Patterns of Predation

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated how herbivore populations are regulated in the Serengeti.

Mozambique Mounds

This activity explores an image of termite mounds in the African savanna, which serves as a phenomenon for learning about ecosystems, competition, and feedback loops.

Diving Adaptations in Sea Nomads

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated physiological and genetic adaptations in the Bajau, a group of people who traditionally do freediving.

Modeling Trophic Cascades

In this activity, students model trophic cascades, which are also explored in a variety of related resources, using cards of animal and plant species from seven different habitats.

Snail Fronts and Salt Marsh Die-Offs

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated whether periwinkle snails contribute to salt marsh die-offs.

Dead Zones in Coastal Ecosystems

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study on low-oxygen areas in the ocean called dead zones.

Activity for Some Animals are More Equal than Others

This activity explores the content and research discussed in the film Some Animals are More Equal than Others, which tells the story of the ecologists who first documented the role of keystone species in ecosystem regulation.

Building Ecological Pyramids

This activity supports using the citizen science platform WildCam Gorongosa in the classroom. It engages students into building biomass pyramids using data from trail camera photos of animals in Gorongosa National Park.

How Novel Icefish Genes Can Improve Human Health

This lesson supports concepts covered in the film The Birth and Death of Genes. After watching the film and reading a couple of scientific passages, students explain how understanding about icefish adaptations might help develop treatments for health conditions.
