If your district is like mine, there are some gaps in the science curriculum. I am expected to teach students about food chains and food webs without teaching anything about ecosystems. That’s when I decided to create this ecosystem accordion-style craftivity booklet. I wanted it to be brief but still provide students with an understanding of what an ecosystem is and what its part are.
In this craftivity you can have your students learn about the following ecosystems: Aquatic Ecosystems (Marine and Freshwater) Land Ecosystems such as- deserts, Temperate forests, Tropical Rainforests, Grasslands, Polar Regions (Arctic & Antarctic). Additionally it helps students grasp the differences between biomes, ecosystems, populations, communities, habitats, and an organism.
This packet contains a reading booklet to guide students to understanding ecosystems and then the pages necessary to explore the climate, animals, and plants of an ecosystem. This comes with everything you need - just print and go! There is no need to schedule research time for your students!

I graduated in 2004 with a Bachelors in Science degree and an elementary education certificate. I am certified to teach K-8 Self-Contained and Middle School Science. I have taught ever since graduation,with most of my experience in 5th grade. I'm currently completing my Masters program in Differentiation. I utilize a lot of differentiated strategies along with the workshop model in reading, writing, math, and sometimes science. I love more hands-on activities that are related to real life for students to explore. I'm not a huge fan of worksheets, but do use them occasionally.
