This .zip file contains materials for middle school science lessons on the distinctions between producers, consumers and decomposers, as part of a unit on the Interactions of Life (Ecology). The unit was designed for 6th graders in NYC.
1 SMARTboard .notebook lesson presentation on producers and consumers (10 slides) including numerous video links.
1 SMARTboard .notebook lesson presentation on decomposers (8 slides) including more video links.
2 homework assignments
Presentations serve as lesson plans that guide the teacher through the entire lesson. Presentations include links to related YouTube videos to increase student engagement (I can help you use YouTube videos in your class, even if your network blocks such sites, just ask).
'Ask a question' if you need a PowerPoint file instead of what is provided, and I can probably re-upload everything with an adjusted file.
