Once we had habitats in our mind we started to explore and research several different terrestrial (or land based) ecosystems. Divvying up the work load and using our trusty chromebooks, our research began this morning! At each team we researched an ecosystem we researched a habitat in accordance with our number. 1s researched the tundra, 2s the desert, 3s the temperate (deciduous) forest, and 4s focused on the grasslands. All students researched the rain forest as it was the ecosystem we were most familiar with.
Next week we'll be ready to wrap up our research and share our findings with our teammates in an All Record Round Robin. Once all of our information is gathered we can compare these different ecosystems and how animals and plants exist within them!
