      Heiss, Brian; Nolan, Thomas; The College at Brockport (2013-07-01)
      Students will use the AgentSheets simulation and excel spreadsheet to understand population dynamics, food webs, invasive species, and predator/prey relationships. This focuses students on the topic of predator/prey and invasive species interactions, assesses prior knowledge of the topic, and allows a student to relate new material to previously covered material and to connect material to “real life” examples. This addresses Content Standards 1 and 4, and Content Objectives: C1: Students will be able to (SWBAT) label the food web in the AgentSheets simulation C2: SWBAT: identify two cause and effects of changing a variable within the system C3: SWBAT: complete the worksheet with a 75% or higher. The primary file is a lesson plan, accompanied by supplemental files. In the supplemental zipped files, you will find: Student worksheets Lesson plan Powerpoint presentations
