1 class periods of 60 minutes each
In this activity students will distinguish between abiotic and biotic factors in an ecosystem. They will demonstrate this by identifying and classifying various biotic and abtiotic objects.
Notes to Teacher:
This lab requires a significant amount of set up. You may want to have a teachers aide help you prepare the boxes several days before you plan on doing the lab. Be sure if you are using dry ice you cover it so students are not harmed.
Students need no prior knowledge. They may come with an incomplete understanding of abiotic factors. Many times they just think dead and do not connect things like temp and elevation.
