LESSON TITLE: No “I” in Team

CURRICULUM AREA: Science- 7.01

GRADE LEVEL: 6

ESSENTIAL QUESTION:

What kinds of relationships do organisms have with each other? What kinds of relationships do team members have with each other?

ACTIVITY SUMMARY:

Students will look at how organisms work together and compare those relationships to the types of relationships that occur on a basketball team.

ACTIVATING STRATEGIES:

  • 1.

    What is the relationship between a remora and a whole?

  • 2.

    What is the relationship between an orchid and the tree it grows on?

  • 3.

    What is the relationship between a tapeworm and its host?

METHOD:

Discuss vocabulary with the students (symbiosis, mutualism, commensalisms, parasitism, competition, and predation). Talk about the different types of relationships and how they occur. Then, discuss teamwork on a basketball team. Compare the relationships with organisms to those on a basketball team. (i.e. What type of relationship would be similar to the “give and go”.)

SUMMARY STRATEGIES:

Higher order questions about how to build a team. What type of players would you like on your team and why?

RE-TEACHING AND ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES:

Create the super-team. The team has 12 players and two reserves. You have to have at least one player from each of all the 12 teams and at least 2 people for each position (center, power forward, small forward, point guard, 2-guard).
