PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Help students learn to identify and categorize the main characteristics of several common ecosystems. Included in this document are graphic organizers and characteristics for each of the following ecosystems:
-Deciduous Forests
-Coniferous Forests
-Tropical Rainforests
-Grasslands
-Desert
-Tundra
-Oceans
-Lakes/Ponds
-Estuaries
-Salt Marshes

The four characteristics for each ecosystem are mixed up which will allow the students to match the correct descriptions on the correct ecosystem graphic organizer. I separated the land based ecosystems from the water based ecosystems so students are not overwhelmed with the number of choices of characteristics. This activity is great for cooperative grouping, a whole class lesson, or even as an informal assessment.

This activity ties in with the NC Essential science standard 5.L.2.1: Compare the characteristics of several common ecosystems, including estuaries and salt marshes, oceans, lakes and ponds, forests, and grasslands.

An answer key is included.
