PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Every year my students study ecosystems. We learn how different animals have to coexist in a specific area to survive. Every year I have them create a diorama of an ecosystem. I used to have them use a shoebox to build their diorama, but they often were too heavy to hang on the wall and not everyone was able to bring in a shoebox. I switched to construction paper and haven't looked back!

This product works and makes the entire process a breeze. Students create an ecosystem (using either the provided template or create their own), and then add more detail with pictures of producers, consumers, prey, predators, living, and nonliving parts of the ecosystem. There are animals to give options to color and add (or students can add their own examples).

4 Ecosystems to Choose From:
*Ocean
*Forest
*Rainforest
*Arctic

The grid is an easy tool to have students show their knowledge by sorting the different parts of the ecosystem into the proper categories. It is also the perfect size to cut out and glue onto the back of the diorama.

Different Parts of the Ecosystem:
*Producers
*Consumers
*Living
*Non Living
*Prey
*Predators

The included directions and rubric keep students on task throughout the process. Check out the preview to see my own student work!

I hope your students enjoy this as much as my own.
