Students will create a diorama or shadow box for a biome of their choice.
The 3 page project packet requires students to write about their biome and to list biotic and abiotic factors which are included in their shadow box.
They will create a food web which represents all the biotic factors of their ecosystem as well as describing how physical and biological changes in the ecosystem will impact the populations.
Editable version included.
