Help your students explore ecosystems with this engaging ecosystems circle book! In this resource you will find the option to create a circle book for one particular ecosystem, or a circle book for multiple ecosystems and their characteristics. (This also works well with biomes!)

Student centered and differentiated station labs to teach ecosystems and ecology to your middle school science students. Topics include Classification (taxonomy), Abiotic and Biotic Factors, Biodiversity, Biomes, Natural Selection, Organism Relationships (predator/prey, parasite/host, consumer/producer/decomposer), Energy Pyramids, Food Chains and Food Webs, Short and Long-Term Environmental Impacts, and Catastrophic Events.

I have created a series of station labs to teach some common concepts relating to ecosystems, ecology, and how organisms interact with each other. Each of the labs is student-centered and differentiated based on learning styles.

Two separate activities to use as homework or classwork for your ecology unit- great for middle school life science or high school biology. Activity for energy flow in ecosystems- food webs, food chains, energy pyramids, biomass, and more!

Ecology Worksheets: Energy Flow in Ecosystems is a set of two worksheets that make a great homework assignment (or can be easily used as an class assignment).

I love this ecosystem interactive notebook for my students. It contains food webs, food chains, energy pyramids, and more. Part of the Earth Science interactive notebook series. Great interactive journal projects for 4th grade - middle school.

Food Web: For this activity, one student starts with a ball of yarn, toss it to another student, and call out a component of the food chain in an ecosystem. Once everyone is holding onto the yard, the teacher will say that a certain tree got cut down and they will cut the string by that tree with scissors and see how "creatures" were affected by one small change. This is good to see how human interactions and natural events affect the environment.

E is for Explore!: animals - Excellent site with variety of activities and information on food webs, food chains, ecosystems and adaptation
