Studying a Piece of an Ecosystem: A High School Biology Class Exercise.
Lewis, James K.
This activity features students carrying out an outdoor study of a 10-by-10 meter area in which they identify organisms living in the soil, plants, insects, and any other animals living within or immediately adjacent to the site. Groups also examine abiotic factors in the same study site. Students work in teams, share data, and each write a paper responding to a series of questions about the data. (Author/CCM)
