Expand your students understanding of ecosystems with this diorama project. Included in this download are student guidelines for creating an ecosystem diorama and writing a paragraph explaining the diorama, suggestions on how to put a diorama together, a research planning worksheet, and rubrics for grading the diorama and the paragraph. I've also included some pictures of ecosystem dioramas that can be used to give students ideas on what they need to do to complete the project.
I've used this project for several years and it is always a big hit with the students in my class. I display the dioramas in the hallway and they always generate a lot of interest from other students in the school too.
