The information located on this website will help teach you (fifth-grade students) basic knowledge about ecosystems.  Throughout the website there are various internet links (underlined items) that will help you answer six quiz questions.  You will also gain enough knowledge about ecosystems to diagram an ecosystem of your own choosing - complete with consumers, producers, and decomposers.  Both the quiz and the ecosystem charts are located on the Lesson page.

Note:  This website was designed to be a self-directional tool and should allow the instructor to serve as more of a facilitator than teacher.  Students are encouraged to provide feedback and comments on the Blog page.
