Description

Are your students bored with traditional science lessons? Teach science with comics, and engage your learners in reading content! Children LOVE cartoons and are hooked on graphic novels. Captivate them with science content in comic form.

Decomposers play a big role in an ecosystem! They are the organisms in charge of cleaning up all the dead plants and animals and recycling them back into the Earth. Without decomposers, our ecosystems would be piling up with dead creatures. This funny illustration provides an entertaining way to learn about this topic.

Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems.

Examples of types of interactions could include competitive, predatory, and mutually beneficial.
NGSS5-LS2-1
Develop a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment. Emphasis is on the idea that matter that is not food (air, water, decomposed materials in soil) is changed by plants into matter that is food. Examples of systems could include organisms, ecosystems, and the Earth. Assessment does not include molecular explanations.
NGSSMS-LS2-1
Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for the effects of resource availability on organisms and populations of organisms in an ecosystem.
