Our Ecosystems and Environments lesson plan introduces students to the concepts and basics of ecosystems and environments. During this lesson, students are asked to review given pairs of organisms and tell how they interact with each other in their ecosystem, including if and how they help each other. Students are also asked to match terms with their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define ecosystem and environment. The students will be able to identify the parts of an ecosystem, and the ways some organisms interact and rely on each other.
