4 Coral Reef Ecosystem
This resource would be very helpful for those teachers who have to teach relationships in a coral reef ecosystems. It describes many of the interdepent relationships found in various coral reef ecosystems. It goes on to explain how the relationships benefit each species and helps this ecosystem to thrive. It also helps you understand the importance of this ecosystem and the interdepence of each organism to the survival of the coral reef. It is very interesting as well as informative.

4 Cell Structure and Functions
For the middle school standards the topic of cells is important in the learning process of students. This topic is relevant and enhances the understanding of organelles and how they do their jobs to help the cell function. Each organelle is important and needed to work with other organelles in order for the cell to do its job. The type of organelles a cell has depends on t he type of cell itself. The comparing and contrasting of animal and plant cells is important for students to understand. The difference between a more complex cell and that of bacteria with limited organelles but still carrying out the same functions is also important for student to understand. All this information can be found here.
