    Community Ecology Teacher Guide
    Bundle Description

    This complete teaching unit on "Community Ecology" includes everything you need to teach a unit on community ecology to your life science or biology students. Resources include a Powerpoint presentation packed with colorful and interesting photographs, homework/study guide, 2 labs, a set of task cards, 2 graphing and informational text activities, 2 short quizzes, crossword puzzle, test prep review questions, and a final unit test.

    Teacher Guide containing tips for implementing the resources, suggestions for sequencing, and alignment to NGSS standards is also included.

    When appropriate, I have included each product as an editable Word document, and I have also included each product in PDF form. Each of these products is sold separately in my TpT store, but buying the entire unit in one download will save you money. If each of these products were purchased separately, the total cost would be $34.74. I am selling the complete bundle of products for $25.99, a saving of 25%.


    For Even Greater Savings: This complete unit bundle is included in the following money-saving bundles.
