On  January 10, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Would it be possible to bundle the ecology and environmental materials. Our biology teacher absolutely LOVES your materials. We are attempting to teach a freshman environmental science class without a textbook and your units look like they may save us a lot of time as we are currently putting everything together from scratch - - - lecture materials, activities, labs etc.

Thank you for your interest in my products. I am very pleased that you are pleased! :)

Some of my ecology materials are bundled and some are not. This is a "work in progress" for me, also. I currently have three ecology units that are bundled. They are:

Introduction to Ecology Complete Unit Bundle: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Introduction-to-Ecology-Complete-Unit-Teaching-Bundle

Population Ecology Complete Unit Bundle: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Population-Ecology-Complete-Unit-Teaching-Bundle

Community Ecology Complete Unit Bundle: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Community-Ecology-Complete-Unit-Plan-Teaching-Bundle

I do have plans for three more ecology units: 1. Energy Flow Through the Ecosystem/Recycling of Chemical Elements, 2. Biomes of the World, and 3. Humans and the Environment. Unfortunately, I am a full time teacher and have limited time to upload new products. For these last three topics, I already have PowerPoints, notes, quizzes and review materials listed. But they are not bundled into complete units at this time.

A complete list of all of my ecology materials can be found at this link: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/My-Products/Digital-Products/7251.

Please feel free to email me (Amy1007@aol.com) if I can be of further assistance.
