The Long and Short Story of Ecological Succession

Seventh graders review the steps of ecological succession in a hardwood forest, and they review the concept of climax community. There job is to discover how succession works in other communities of living things. Students are reminded about biotic and abiotic factors and interdependence of species. They work in groups of four to create a mini-history activity about the life in a community of living things spanning 100 years.
