What is an Ecosystem?
Which ecosystems are near me? What animals and plants live in a swamp? What about a salt marsh? In this activity, you will learn about ecosystems in the Pontchartrain Basin and create a visual model that shows both living and non-living parts of the ecosystem.
Project: Research an ecosystem found in the Pontchartrain Basin using our resources and the internet. Use your research to create a visual model of the ecosystem. Can you make a visual model for all seven featured ecosystems?
