Overview: This activity provides students a chance to listen, reflect, and respond to questions about ecological succession. Students should work alone. The activity can be completed in a 30 minute class period depending upon the students' level of understanding about ecological succession. The activity will require the teacher to purchase, download, and play the song, "Big Yellow Taxi." from an outside digital media site (i.e. i-tunes) if they do not already own a copy of the song.
