You need an easy but fun and educational tool for teaching about ecosystems. I've got just the resource you need! This craftivity comes with a reading comprehension passage to help your students explore ecosystems, as well as to practice main ideas with supporting details.

If your district is like mine, then there are some gaps in the science curriculum. I am expected to teach students about food chains and food webs without teaching anything about ecosystems. That’s when I decided to create this accordion-style craftivity booklet. I wanted it to be brief but still provide students with an understanding of this important concept that's foundational to other science concepts.

Check out the preview for details!

This Product Includes:

✓ Aquatic (marine and freshwater)

✓ Land (deserts, temperate forests, and tropical rainforests)

✓ Grasslands

✓ Polar regions (arctic and antarctic)

✓ Additionally, it helps students grasp the differences between biomes, ecosystems, populations, communities, habitats, and organisms.

With This Product You'll Get:

✓ A reading booklet to guide students to understanding

✓ Pages necessary to explore climate, animals, and plants

✓ Two different sizes (half-page version and full-page version) for writing space

✓ Answer Key

A Google Slides version so that your students can complete it digitally if you prefer! This makes it perfect for distance learning!

Other Buyers Have Said:

"This activity was a great review for our unit on ecosystems. The accordion books were also put on display so that parents could see what we had learned." (Thank you, Collabor8!)

"Great tool. My 6th graders used this to take notes in during peer group presentations. Putting the booklet together and coloring the pages kept those in the groups that were not doing research or working on their part of the presentation busy." (Thank you!)

"This was an easy way for my students to learn about various ecosystems. They enjoyed making the book with a partner." (Thank you, Sarah M.!)

Final Notes:

While I recommend printing in color and laminating materials for future use, it is not necessary. These materials print just fine in grayscale.
