Do middle school students really know what pioneer species actually are?
Have they ever actually seen any?
Give them some pictures!
Clear instructions walk students through creating a flip book that shows changes in ecosystems over time, from primary succession through secondary succession. Clear instructions of what to draw on each page are given, as well as diagrams of the two types of succession and pictures of different organism types (lichen, small grassy plants, mature forest, etc,) for reference.
Also check out our popular NGSS-Aligned ECOSYSTEM TEST.
We have lots of Ecology Resources in the ECOLOGY SECTION OF OUR STORE.
