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 lesson about the life in a community of living things spanning 100 years.

I just started using Lesson Planet but so far I like that I can find worksheets to go with lessons I already have planned.
