Environmental Science

The Study of Ecology


Introduction

Introduction

Who is the audience?

• Grade 6 Science Class

• Biology Unit / Environmental

• This project will serve as a review and reinforcement of previously introduced material

•The focus is on the following terms:

• Ecology, population, community, ecosystem, herbivore, carnivore, omnivore, scavenger, and habitat.

Objectives

• Students will demonstrate understanding of the interactions of plants, animals, fungi and other organisms in ecosystems.

• Students will be able to identify populations of organisms within an ecosystem and the factors that contribute to their survival within that ecosystem.

By: Denise M. Legghio
