Ecosystems Unit — Vocabulary, Biomes, & More!

Throughout the past few weeks, our fifth graders tackled various topics concerning ecosystems. They first created a foldable defining ecosystem vocabulary. Then they researched and created foldables on the six different biomes. Most recently, the students worked in small groups and completed a Jigsaw Activity, as a means to learn about the various water ecosystems.

Below you will find pictures of students working with their Jigsaw Groups. Within each group, students researched the water ecosystems and taught each other what they learned.
