Lesson idea implementation:

This overall lesson should take a week and a half to two-weeks, depending on time given
every day. To introduce the lesson, the teacher will generate a class discussion about the topic of the
roles of organisms in our environment. The teacher will then generate a class discussion about what
students believe a biologist is. The teacher will then explain that today they will be biologists and will
study different kinds of organisms and their roles. Students and teacher will then partake on a class
nature hike around the school premises. Using IPads, students will take pictures of each type of
organism (i.e. producer, consumer, decomposer) to apply their understanding of the topic. Once all
examples of organisms are found, students will then upload their pictures on a laptop or desk-top
computer and create a narrated PowerPoint to showcase their findings.
Each slide should have two to four examples of each organism and a brief definition in their
own words as to the role of the organism. The last slide will be a model the student must create to
show the flow of energy within the ecosystem and a brief summary included. The students will then
present their final product to the class. Students will be graded on the overall pictures taken,
participation, work ethic, and presentation quality. Once finished, students will upload their
presentations to the class blog.
This is a LoTi 4 Integration level. Students are using forms of technology to apply and create
their funds of knowledge on the topic of organisms roles in the environment. The learning tasks
allow students to independently construct their findings. Students will share their projects to the class,
as well as on a higher level-the classroom blog where parents may also view the presentations.

NOTE: Students will be taking pictures on class set of IPads. IPads will then be plugged into the class laptops or desk-top
computers to upload pictures. Should there not be enough IPads, then students will have to share and keep note of which
pictures they took.
