This file includes articles, PowerPoints, and activities for teaching students about ecosystems and human impact on ecosystems. These materials are meant to supplement a textbook or existing unit. Additionally, they could be used at a nature center or informal education facility to add an informational text component to lessons.
Included are seven articles with before and after reading activities:
-What Is a Habitat?
-Raising a Stink About Stinkbugs
-Don't Release Your Pets!
-Bluebirds Bounce Back
-The Return of the Falcons
-Decomposers: Delightful or Disgusting?
-What is a habitat?
Some important details to consider:
-Some of these articles have previously appeared in my other products. Please see the Preview file for more information.
-These articles focus mainly on issues within ecosystems rather than on identifying ecosystems. If you are looking for a product with descriptions of various ecosystems, this is not it.
-Please see the Preview for the complete list of items and thumbnails of selected pages.
-These materials are designed for thoughtful use in differentiated classrooms.
