School Yard Park/ Ecosystem

Fifth graders examine ecosystems in their schoolyard. In this nature and ecosystem instructional activity, 5th graders map their schoolyard into workable plots. They classify plants and animals found in the plot. They revisit their site every two weeks throughout the school year to observe and record changes. They look at plant growth, animal sightings, temperature changes, and moisture.
