Spanish Content Standards:
Communication: Communicate in languages other than English.
K. Present information orally, signed or in writing.

Connections: Connect with other disciplines and acquire information.
A. Investigate and report on concepts from across disciplines.

Biology Content Standards:
F. Explain the structure and function of ecosystems and relate how ecosystems change over time. (09-10)
15. Explain how living things interact with biotic and abiotic components of the environment (e.g., predation, competition, natural disasters and weather). (10)
16. Relate how distribution and abundance of organisms and populations in ecosystems are limited by the ability of the ecosystem to recycle materials and the availability of matter, space and energy. (10)

Technology Standards (Grade 10)
1.C.3  Define examples of how technological progress is integral to the advancement of science, mathematics and other fields of study.
2.A.4 Identify capabilities and limitations of contemporary and emerging technology resources and assess the potential of these systems and services to address personal, lifelong learning and workplace needs.
2.B.1 Explain how, with the aid of technology, various aspects of the environment can be monitored to provide information for decision- making (e.g., satellites can be used to monitor wetlands in order to control disease spread by mosquitoes).
2.B.2 Understand that the appropriate design of technological devices and systems maximizes performance and reduces negative impacts on the environment (e.g., design vehicle components for ease of recycling after use).
