Next, write a 3 paragraph report about your ecosystem. Each paragraph should be 5 to 8 sentences, handwritten in your own words, and DO NOT COPY WORD FOR WORD from books or the internet.

•1st paragraph: Describe the characteristics of this ecosystem. What is the climate? Where is this type of ecosystem usually found on earth? What are the biotic and abiotic factors?

•2nd paragraph: Choose 1 specific type of ecosystem. For example, you could choose the Sahara Desert if your project is about deserts. Where is this ecosystem located? What are some interesting facts about this ecosystem that make it unique?

•3rd paragraph: What kinds of animals and plants live in this ecosystem? What adaptations do these animals and plants have to live here? Are they herbivores, carnivores, or omnivores? Who are the predators and prey in your ecosystem?

    • What does it look like?

    • Is it a carnivore, herbivore, or omnivore?

    • What type of adaptations does it have to survive
