This is a final project for a wetlands, mountain/ forest, desert unit. This diorama project was designed for 4th graders and will take about 3 hours to complete, contingent on volunteers. (This is a project where additional adult help is best but not necessary.) I include step-by-step instructions per ecosystem, photos, animal clip art (black and white so students can color them), a rubric, and a worksheet for an ecosystem writing assignment. My students LOVE this project each year and many students request staying inside from recess to make the finishing touches. I have students tell me they keep their project all year long at home! I ask for donations for shoe boxes, model clay, foliage, craft sticks, gummy worms, sand, gravel, etc. This can be a take-home project or an in-school project. This is a great project where parents can volunteer to help! This is part of my huge bundle: Wetland, Forest, and Desert Ecosystem Complete Unit Bundle.
