What is Ecology

Cat’s of Borneo- A lesson that helps students understand relationships¬† cause and effect within an ecosystem.

Disruptions in Ecosystems– A case study of the wolves of Yellowstone. A great introductory activity to get students Thinking about interrelationships within an ecosystem. This lesson has been vetted as an EQUIP rated example through the NGSS web site. It is designed as a middle school lesson, but I use it as an introduction to Ecology.
