Item description

Ecosystems consists of seven handy printable black-and-white Student Worksheets (PLUS Answer Sheets) that will not just save you lots of prep time but will help your students to improve and/or consolidate their understanding of this essential and fundamental topic in biology. Ecosystems is suitable for years 9 – 12 and can be used as class work, homework, revision exercises and even tests. It includes a group fieldwork activity.

Content included:

  • What is an ‘ecosystem’?

  • Food chains and food webs

  • Biotic and abiotic factors affecting ecosystems

  • Flow of energy through ecosystems (10 percent law of energy transfer)

  • Types of relationships found in ecosystems (mutualism, commensalism, parasitism, amensalism, etc.)

  • Organising biodiversity using classification systems and how these systems have changed over time

  • The binomial naming system

Along with printable worksheets, a digital (PowerPoint) version of this resource is included at no extra cost, giving teachers a choice as to which they prefer to use – taking into account the different learning styles of their students.

Ecosystems is not just about answering questions. Your students will enjoy the ‘active’ nature of the tasks here, including:

  • analysing diagrams

  • adding features to diagrams

  • colour-coding

  • completing a word find

  • carrying out Internet research

  • working in groups to complete a fieldwork activity on estimating population density using quadrats

  • using simple PowerPoint tools to add features to diagrams by creating and inserting shapes (digital version)

Ecosystems includes an Answer Key (PDF) with images in full colour that look great on the big screen and can be used to facilitate good discussion. Answers provided are highly detailed, so there is no need to research or fact-check here; it’s all been done for you!

I hope you and your students find this product useful and that you enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed creating it!
