Project Learning Tree: Energy in Ecosystems Workshop for Teachers: Grades 3-5


Description: Teach the standards and have fun? Absolutely! Designed for 3rd-5th grade teachers, the new Energy in Ecosystems e-unit by Project Learning Tree investigates ways in which organisms depend on each other to survive and thrive. Students focus on forests (one of the largest and most complex types of ecosystems) and come to understand some of the interactions present in all ecosystems. In doing so, they learn to appreciate the natural systems on which we depend and begin to widen their circle of compassion to include all of nature. All lessons in this unit are correlated to NGSS.
