8 Rabbits
16 Clover plants
Materials: Post-It notes, spray bottle
Ecology
Building 2-D and 3-D models of
ecosystems
Data modified significantly from
Odum’s study of a river ecosystem in
Silver Springs, Florida
Food Chain Modelling Data
Use 1 mm2= 1 kcal/m2/yr
Phytoplankton 8800 kcal/m2/yr
Zooplankton 1500kcal/m2/yr
Trout 70 kcal/m2/yr
River otter 6 kcal/m2/yr

Using Literacy to Start Great
Discussions
Collect a series of articles on a variety of topics
The articles are particularly good if they compare
two opposing sides of a controversial issue such
as:
Is DDT Africa’s Last Hope?
Highly Charged Motoring
An element of the ridiculous is also very helpful in
starting a great discussion:
Chocolate Chirp Cookies
OWL Pellets
This is a fabulous activity: Don’t be
intimidated if you have never done it
before!
Physics - NS Map Project
First Activity: Draw a map of Nova Scotia
Label the following cities:
• Halifax
* Truro
• Digby
* Lunenburg
* Sydney
* Amherst
Estimate the distances between the cities
