Urban Ecosystems 4: Metabolism of Urban Ecosystems

Cities are compared to living, breathing, metabolizing organisms. Fourth in a five-part series of lessons, this one focuses on the flow of materials through a city. Links to interesting websites and images make your delivery of information more interesting. Poetry about waste brings an interdisciplinary aspect to the lesson plan, which concludes by having collaborative groups prepare presentations to the class about what they learned.
