ECOSYSTEMS

Grades 3rd and 4th

Introduction
Introduction

  • “An ecosystem is a community of living and non-living things. They function together and are interdependent on one another for survival. An ecosystem can be as big as a desert or as small as a tree or a pond.” (http://www.neok12.com/Ecosystems.htm)

  • Ecosystems vary from place to place.

  • It is important to keep our ecosystems safe and clean.

  • The best way to protect these varying ecosystems is to better understand them.


Task

  • Your job is to work with a partner and research an ecosystem.

  • You will need to become an expert on your ecosystem and present what you learn to your classmates.

  • You and your partner will use the internet to (1)discover where on Earth your ecosystem is found, (2)what living and non-living items are found in your ecosystem, (3) find a current or past threat to your ecosystem, (4) think of a possible solution to this threat if you have every possible resource to use, and finally any (5) fun facts you would like to share.
