This project is intended for 6-8 Science. Students will gain a better understanding of energy flow in ecosystems by placing a fictional creature into an existing ecosystem.

Students will reinforce concepts of:

-relationships between climate, habitat and niches in an ecosystem

This project is intended to take 5-7 days and can be used as a whole unit.
