Biology Packet: Biomes, Ecosystems, Habitats, Feeding Relationships, Biological Interactions:
When we first started this unit, we talked about the basic climate zones before exploring the 9 biomes in more depth. We first covered the basic biomes when the kids were little. This time the kids were in upper elementary and middle school. We talked a lot about the abiotic factors that make up an ecosystem (anything that is not living — climate, soil, weather, etc.), as well as touching on dominant plants and animals. We spent time on feeding relationships and biological interactions. So, we went over the basic terms like herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, detritivores. And, we also talked a lot about the more complex biological interactions — from mutualism,when two species interact and both get something positive out of the interaction, to various forms of amensalism – when one organism benefits and the other is harmed and/or destroyed like parasitism, competition and antibiosis. We talked about the food chain and food webs as well as the difference between habitats, ecosystems, and biomes. You can find out more about this biology packet here or you can purchase this with the link below.
This packet 70 page packet is $6.50 and contains all the materials mentioned above.
There are 4 main earth systems: the atmosphere, geosphere, biosphere, and hydrosphere. After we did the Biology/Biosphere Unit above (biomes, habitats, feeding relationships and so forth), we went on to study the hydrosphere, ie. Earth’s Oceans. Some of the topics we covered included:
- Marine Habitats
- Water Form Words (bay, estuary, lagoon, fjord, etc.)
- Features of the Ocean Floor (trench, seamount, guyot, etc.)
- Ocean Navigation (early navigation with astrolabes & the constellations, modern SONAR)
- Ocean Currents (Surface & Deep Sea Currents)
- Ocean Life:
- Special Body Features
- Fish Body Shape and Movement
- Biological Interactions: Mutualism and Commensalism in the Ocean
- Deep Sea Life – Bioluminescence, Anglerfish
- We also watched the beautiful documentary, Blue Planet, (affiliate link) in conjunction with these activities and notebook pages. My kids loved this series and we highly recommend it!! The footage is stunning and the stories about the wildlife were riveting!
Layers of the Ocean Activities:
A number of years ago, we had studied the layers of the ocean and the ocean zones. This packet is $3.00
The Ocean Zones Activity Packet is $3.00.
does NOT include the 65-page Ocean Packet (above)
States of Matter Packet: 50+ page packet on the three states of matter – solids, liquids, gases and changing states of matter. We talked quite a bit about the characteristics of solids, liquids and gases. We also went into a lot of detail on the changing states of matter covering those six changes (melting, freezing, evaporation, condensation, sublimation, deposition). (Note: This packet does not discuss plasma.)
Note: If you want to purchase a bundle with the Properties of Matter Packet, see details below.
Physical and Chemical Properties of Matter
- Matter: Elements, Compounds, Mixtures
- Organization of the Periodic Table
- Molecular vs. Structural Formulas
- Describing Matter: Physical and Chemical Properties
- Density Activities – Mass÷Volume
- Mixtures: Solutions, Colloids and Suspensions
After we finished our States of Matter Unit, we went into more detail about the physical and chemical properties of matter. We reviewed elements and compounds and discussed periodic table – including the main groups and their properties. We talked about molecular vs. structural formulas. We then spent quite some time on the physical properties of matter (size, color, mass, boiling point, etc.) We went into quite some depth about density doing a number of activities to find (and calculate) the density of objects (using water displacement/volume and mass). Finally, we spent the last part of this unit discussing solutions and suspensions… covering terms like solvent, solute, homogeneous mixture and heterogeneous mixture.
This unit is best for middle school students. (My youngest did the unit with us, but the material was quite challenging for her and we’ll definitely need to repeat this unit for her in a few years.)
