Saskatchewan Foundational and Learning Objective
1.1.3: Appreciate the nature of scientific investigations and the findings of science.
1.3.5: Examine the principles of natural selection as identified by Darwin and Wallace.
2.1.10: Discuss the following cycles and attempt to illustrate their interrelationship: water, carbon dioxide-oxygen, nitrogen.
2.2.1: Understand the concept of niche and habitat.
2.2.2: Identify the biotic and abiotic components and interactions in the ecosystems observed.
2.3.3: Investigate the role of humans in creating and sustaining conditions which alter the rate of ecological change.
2.4.1: Recall the criteria which define a population.
2.5.3: Compare cyclic populations and stable populations.
2.6.3: Draw a climatogram and discuss temperature and moisture as major determiners of a specific ecological area.
3.1.3: Understand the system of binomial nomenclature. (Discuss the 7 major classification units which include Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, and Species and their associated relationships.)
3.1.4: Use dichotomous keys to help identify organisms. (One could demonstrate that a key locates actual organisms just as binomial nomenclature and the species level identifies actual organisms.)
3.2.1: Describe viral structure and activity.
3.2.8: Collect, culture, and observe a variety of protists.
3.4.3: Describe the habitat and niche of animals native to Saskatchewan.
4.1.2: Describe the processes of pollen production, fertilization and seed formation of plants.
4.1.3: Describe the means by which solutions are transported through plants.
4.2.3: Discuss the reasons and issues associated with various land uses and crop diversity.
