This TWO PAGE EDITABLE Case Study comes with an Answer Key. The first page contains an article about Easter Island and the development of the ecological disaster that occurred there, and the second page contains questions that explore the causes and effects of the choices that were made by the inhabitants of the island.
I have used this case study to start off my unit in Ecosystems before I even teach any of the concepts in the unit. It is great for generating thoughtful discussion. It would also work well if used after the main principles of ecology are taught in order to bring to life some of the main concepts using a real life model.
A SIMPLE AND EASY SUB PLAN
I have also used this as a sub plan for when I've been away. It works like a charm.
