In grade four, this semester’s second unit focused on ecosystems. In the first lab, students picked a biome and brought in supplies to recreate the conditions in that biome. In the second lab, students used the same animals and plants from the biome box to create a food web. The food webs were made using paper plates and string. For the final ecosystem lab, the students were given a biome and they were asked to design an animal with special adaptations that allowed their animal to survive in their given biome.
