This is a comprehensive learning guide for students to use while learning all about ecosystems! It is an easy way for students to take control of their own learning. The guide is very easy to use and is a great way to keep students' work organized and in one place.
-Comparing different types of ecosystems
-Population vs. Community
-Producers, Consumers, Decomposers graphic organizer
-Solar System diagram to label
-Habits and Niches
-Food Chain and Food Web activities
-Flow of energy through an Energy Pyramid

This learning guide correlates with the Georgia Performance Standards for 4th Grade.
S4L1. Students will describe the roles of organisms and the flow of energy within an ecosystem.
a. Identify the roles of producers, consumers, and decomposers in a community.
b. Demonstrate the flow of energy through a food web/food chain beginning with sunlight and including producers, consumers, and decomposers.
c. Predict how changes in the environment would affect a community (ecosystem) of organisms.
d. Predict effects on a population if some of the plants or animals in the community are scarce or if there are too many.
S4L2. Students will identify factors that affect the survival or extinction of organisms such as adaptation, variation of behaviors (hibernation), and external features (camouflage and protection).
a. Identify external features of organisms that allow them to survive or reproduce better than organisms that do not have these features (for example: camouflage, use of hibernation, protection, etc.).
b. Identify factors that may have led to the extinction of some organisms.
