This is a packet of everything you need to teach a 4th grade unit on Ecosystems.
Your students will LOVE the project. They will make a food chain model which will include producers, consumers and the habitat. The students will also need to include the energy flow arrows that will move from the sun, to the producers, then showing the energy flow to the consumers. A grading rubric is in the packet. There is room on the rubric for you to include your own comments about their project. Your students will gain speaking skills as they present the project to their classmates. Have the students explain the chosen habitat and go through the energy flow.
Vocabulary sheet for students to define terms of consumers, producers, decomposers, habitat, environment...
Experiment and activities included. Constructed responses are included on the assessment for the student to explain what concepts they attained from the fun activities.
