Freshwater Ecosystems

I apologize in advance for not having pictures of the students working. They were just having so much fun sharing information about the lakes and rivers and oceans they had visited with their families, that I forgot to get out the camera!

After our discussion I read Frog in a Bog, a lovely book illustrating the interaction between all of the living organisms and non-living elements in this ecosystem.

We went on to find out more about freshwater environments such as streams, rivers, watersheds, ponds and lakes. The students did some drawings in a take-home booklet of the animals and plants they might find in a pond habitat.
