Teaching about ecosystems is one of my favorite units. To start the unit out on the right track, students first explore what makes an ecosystem.
The foldable included in this bundle includes vocabulary words such as: organism, population, community and ecosystem as well as a teacher version of how to fill it out. On the inside of the foldable, students will write a definition of each word and their own illustrations. All you need to do is print and pass out to students.
The second item included in this bundle is a graphic organizer to review the vocabulary words mentioned above. Again, students can work in pairs to complete it and include their own illustratons. Mine turned our precious and have made it on our bulletin board.
