Living World

Outcomes : A student:

› relates the structure and function of living things to their classification, survival and reproduction SC4-14LW

› explains how new biological evidence changes people's understanding of the world SC4-15LW

LW5 Science and technology contribute to finding solutions to conserving and managing sustainable ecosystems.

a. construct and interpret food chains and food webs, including examples from Australian ecosystems

Students work in groups to find (capture and later release) and take photos of living things around the property. These are printed out and students create food chains and food webs of three different biomes – Dry forest, Creek and Free choice.

b. describe interactions between organisms in food chains and food webs, including producers, consumers and decomposers (ACSSU112)

Quick lesson on different organisms in food chains and food webs followed by role playing game where students play competitive game of consumers and producers.

c. describe examples of beneficial and harmful effects that micro-organisms can have on living things and the environment

1. Students use yeast to make bread for lunch and then have a competition which team can make the best lunch using pickings from the vegetable gardens.

2. A study of helpful decomposing micro-organisms in the forest.

3. Lesson on harmful micr-organisms

d. predict how human activities can affect interactions in food chains and food webs, including examples from Australian land or marine ecosystems (ACSSU112)

Creek walk and stream testing to determine affect of human interactions on the local waterway.

e. explain, using examples, how scientific evidence and/or technological developments contribute to developing solutions to manage the impact of natural events on Australian ecosystems

Climate Change Discussion.

A look at bushfire management.

f. describe how scientific knowledge has influenced the development of practices in agriculture, eg animal husbandry or crop cultivation to improve yields and sustainability, or the effect of plant-cloning techniques in horticulture

A walk in the garden to discuss these ideas.
