Design a coyote territory and habitat

Using art materials or computer generated graphics, design a scale representation of what you think an ideal habitat and territory would be for a coyote. Incorporate the elements a coyote needs to survive. Using the data obtained from the Visualization Tool, what would be the size of your created territory?


3-LS4-3 (Upper Elementary)

Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive at all. 

4-LS1-1 (Upper Elementary)

Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction.

HS-LS2-1 (High School)

Use mathematical and/or computational representations to support explanations of factors that affect carrying capacity of ecosystems at different scales. 

HS-LS2-2 (High School)

Use mathematical representations to support and revise explanations based on evidence about factors affecting biodiversity and populations in ecosystems of different scales. 

MS-LS2-1 (Middle School)

Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for the effects of resource availability on organisms and populations of organisms in an ecosystem.

MS-LS2-2 (Middle School)

Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems.
