Bell Ringer- copy the following learning goals into the next blank
page into your notebook and add to the table of contents. Title the
page Sustainable versus frontier ethic notes.
Learning Goal 1:
H.E.1A.8 Obtain and evaluate scientific information to (1) answer questions, (2) explain or
describe phenomena, (3) develop models, (4) evaluate hypotheses, explanations, claims, or
designs or (5) identify and/or fill gaps in knowledge. Communicate using the conventions and
expectations of scientific writing or oral presentations by (1) evaluating grade-appropriate
primary or secondary scientific literature, or (2) reporting the results  of student experimental
investigations.
Learning Goal 2:
Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, and conserve and
sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.  
Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation
and halt biodiversity loss.

Aug 31st
Standard NGSS and SC
MS-ESS3-3.
Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact
on the environment.* [Clarification Statement: Examples of the design process include
examining human environmental impacts, assessing the kinds of solutions that are feasible,
and designing and evaluating solutions that could reduce that impact. Examples of human
impacts can include water usage (such as the withdrawal of water from streams and aquifers
or the construction of dams and levees), land usage (such as urban development, agriculture,
or the removal of wetlands), and pollution (such as of the air, water, or land).]
Bell ringer-What  happens to our plastic from the land? There is
some awesome news there.
What is it? What was the most
shocking thing you learned?  What is the most polluted river in the
world? Add to your noteboook.
  • If you are interested learn what you can do to reduce your
    own single-use plastics, and take your pledge.
Continue Water Pollution Gizmo


Sept 4th
Bellringer-Go to the DHEC of SC STATE DRINKING
REGULATIONS and go to page 126. Choose on of the chemicals
they allow in our drinking water and tell me what you choose and
what the allowable limit is. Write this in your notebook and then
research what level of this chemical can be harmful to humans.
When you are finished with your research write a reason why
YOU think they allow the chemical to be in our drinking water.

Standard: Participants will discover what an estuary is and use
an interactive water feature map to visualize the concept.
Participants will determine the importance of estuaries as nursery
grounds and how the different habitats support biomass
productivity.

Biogeochemical cycle webquest

Sept 10th
Standard:
There are three major categories of living organisms in an ecosystem and each has a special
role. They are: producers, consumers, and decomposers.
The food energy produced by producers is cycled through the ecosystem through food
chains and complex food webs by way of a series of energy levels called trophic levels.
Energy is lost as it flows through the ecosystem. A food pyramid reflects fewer and fewer
organisms at each level, supported by larger numbers of organisms at the trophic level just
below. Students will determine if climate change has the potential for far reaching affects
within marine food webs.
