Survival in the Prairie*


Students will have the opportunity to observe the differences in four distinct ecosystems - prairie, field, pine plantation, and forest and make connections to the adaptations that have taken place over time. Students will diagram the prairie and forest life cycles, exlore tree bark thickness and compare biomass diagrams of different ecosystems.
