This open-ended worksheet is designed to go along with any Planet Earth or Planet Earth 2 video. The questions ask students to choose any organisms they like, define their habitat and niche, examine different type of species interactions, and create a food web & trophic pyramid. I use this after I have taught basic ecology concepts and want to assess their ability to pick out these ideas.
I have uploaded this in both a PDF and a .docx format, so you can modify and differentiate the lesson to best fit your classroom and students' needs. Enjoy!
