Stage 6 - Ecosystem Dynamics - Biology Module 4

Stage 6 Biology Module 4


Kamay Botany Bay National Park, Kurnell



Module 4 called ecosystem dynamics enables mandatory fieldwork, including the comprehensive modelling of the working scientifically process though the inclusion of pre and post fieldwork lessons.

During the intertidal rocky shore investigation students observe patterns across the ecosystem. Students suggest reasons for these patterns and formulate hypotheses for testing in the field. Fieldwork data is then organised and presented through the use of tables and charts for analysis and ultimately reporting. 

During the fieldwork students will collect primary data both qualitative and quantitative to investigate the key inquiry question: What effect can one species have on the other species?

Visiting teachers will be supported with documents, lesson notes, tasks and on online quiz. There will be access to tables and charts for the input of data collected.

This fieldwork could support a depth study.
