**Aligns to 5th Grade NGSS!**
This product includes a culminating step-by-step project. For this project, students will choose to explain and model an ecosystem and how matter cycles throughout the ecosystem. Students will read and record their research, plan an explanatory model, write an explanatory model, plan a 3-D model, and create a 3-D model. Project suggestions are included on the directions card. Students can work in teams or independently. Both an explanatory model rubric and a 3-D model rubric are included to guide students to the creation of a successful culminating project!
