1. Sustainable ecosystem Unit task

2. Lesson 2: At risk species and habitat loss

2.1. Curriculum Expectations: B3. demonstrate an understanding of the dynamic nature of ecosystems, particularly in terms of ecological balance and the impact of human activity on the sustainability of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.

2.2. Lesson Goals:Species at risk and habitat loss

2.3. Minds on: How does human activity threaten biodiversity ? Brainstorm in groups using mind meister. Share your final products on google classroom.

2.4. Action: Complete the folllowing kahoot https://create.kahoot.it/details/species-at-risk/ac5d2f49-25a1-4d91-9938-1aa7cd6be183

2.5. 1. Grassland birds hurting worse than any other wildlife on Prairies, WWF finds 2. http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/cheetahs-population-decline-endangered-study-1.3913010 Chose one of the following articles on Grassland birds or Cheetahs and create a poster using google Drawings Summarizing why this species is at risk and what we can do to ensure the conservation, restoration and sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystem.

2.6. Consolidation: Share posters to class in google classroom. Provide feedback on one other peers poster.

3. Lesson 3: Pollution

3.1. Objectives: A1. demonstrate scientific investigation skills (related to both inquiry and research) in the four areas of skills (initiating and planning, performing and recording, analysing and interpreting, and communicating); B3. demonstrate an understanding of the dynamic nature of ecosystems, particularly in terms of ecological balance and the impact of human activity on the sustainability of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.

3.2. Lesson: Pollution and resource management

3.3. Minds on: "the solution to pollution is dilution" Think-pair-share

3.4. Action: crash course video: pollution Pollution: Crash Course Ecology #11

3.7. Consolidation: Post three strategies we can implement to preserve landforms in Ontario in google classroom.

4. Lesson 1: Services from natural ecosystems

4.1. Curriculum Expectations: B1. assess the impact of human activities on the sustainability of terrestrial and/or aquatic ecosystems, and evaluate the effectiveness of courses of action intended to remedy or mitigate negative impacts; B2. investigate factors related to human activity that affect terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, and explain how they affect the sustainability of these ecosystems;

4.2. Lesson goals: To determine some products the ecosystem provides us To identify what cultural services are and how it relates to the enivornment

4.3. Minds on: Why is biodiversity important to us as humans?

4.4. Ecosystem services

4.5. Action: 1.Think-pair-share: debrief about the video shown above. 2. In groups, students will access The Economics of ecosystems and biodiversity website and create tables on google docs about the different categories of ecosytem services that ecosystems provide.
