Ecosystems are the basis of survival for all living things. In order for us to exist, we need to cultivate and nurture other organisms. It’s very important that an ecosystem meets the basic needs of every living thing in order to survive. Students will discover the importance of the many components of an ecosystem. Students will choose an ecosystem. They will construct a model that best represents the elements that make their chosen ecosystem unique.
