Product Description
This product is a detailed lesson plan designed to introduce 4th grade students to a study of ecosystems. It was written to correspond with the McGraw-Hill Science textbook, but with a couple tweaks it could probably work with another similar textbook. The lesson focuses primarily on teaching children vocabulary terms related to an ecosystem and how to identify various ecosystems. A vocabulary hand-out is included with the lesson plan. The handout asks students to use their textbook to define ecosystem, habitat, community and population. The bottom of the handout has a diagram that explains the relationship between ecosystems, communities, and populations.

I taught this lesson over a course of 2 30-minute periods.

*Recommended Read-aloud for this lesson: The Great Kapok Tree, by Lynne Cherry

*Corresponds to McGraw-Hill Science but with a few tweaks, it could be used with other textbooks as well.
