Module 9

The effect of evergreen and deciduous trees on the organisms that live in and under them

Activity:

To determine the effect that evergreen and deciduous trees have on the organisms that live in and under them. [LO 1.2]

  • The important thing is that the learners must think for themselves and venture answers, e.g.
  • birds can make nests in deciduous trees only during certain times of the year
  • deciduous trees only provide food for insects at certain times of the year
  • the soil under a deciduous tree might be drier and harder than under an evergreen tree
  • an evergreen tree always provides shade for plants and animals that like shade, etc.

EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS IN NATURE IS OF SIGNIFICANCE

For example, look at the following two types of trees:

How does the nature of the two types of trees affect the animals that live in them or under them?

Assessment

LEARNING OUTCOME 1: SCIENTIFIC INVESTIGATIONSThe learner will be able to act confidently on curiosity about natural phenomena, and to investigate relationships and solve problems in scientific, technological and environmental contexts.

We know this when the learner:

1.1 plans investigations: together with their co-learners, they list knowledge regarding familiar situations and materials and compile investigative questions;

1.2 leads investigations and collects data: execute instructions and procedures that entail smaller sections;

1.3 evaluates data and communicates findings: provides feedback on progress in group context and on the final result.
