Lesson Plans

To…Introduce students to Stella modeling software by having students develop a simple population model and have students experiment with parameters on a more complicated food chain model.Students will be able to…▪ Build a basic Stella model of a population incorporating birth and mortality rates.▪ Use a pre-built Stella model to represent relationships, make conjectures, and model the dynamics of a food chain.
