(backordered: in stock 7/21/22)

Description

  • Show the process of succession in a short period of time
  • Create a minipond ecosystem using live organisms
  • Explore in a classroom setting the factors that influence succession

Grades 9–12. Students set up and observe an ecosystem advancing through the stages of ecological succession. They then use these observations to track changes and predict the outcome of their ecosystem. As a final activity, students modify their simulation to represent a disturbance and show how it affects the successional sequence.

Kit includes enough materials for at least 30 students working in groups. Kit also includes voucher to request living materials later at your convenience. Receive a FREE digital Teacher's Manual and Student Guide with kit purchase.
