Next Generation Science Standards NGSS LS2 Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics (System Interactions). Includes a DIGITAL INQUIRY ACTIVITY to make DECOMPOSITION COLUMNS through Distance Learning and Google Classroom!

This is PART 3 of 3 units. All 3 units can be found in the Ecosystems Unit Bundle.

This is a collection of lessons and inquiry-based science activities, including worksheets, assessments, visuals, and directions about how to make a decomposition column. Students will identify how energy, within an ecosystem, originates from the sun. They will learn about the transfer of energy from producers to consumers to decomposers. They will apply all they know about living things, food chains, food webs, and energy in a final assessment. This also is a great connection to health topics about food, food energy, and where our food comes from (food pyramid, etc.)
