Ecosystems Matters

The Ecosystems Matters toolkit provides materials to do the activities from this U.S. Forestry curriculum (PDF) geared towards grades 3-5. Activities include an introduction to ecosystems, carrying capacity, discovering habitats, indicator species, natural resources, and how we use them and more. In addition, some materials from this National 4-H curriculum are also included to discover local ecosystems and practice scientific observations, but these do require outside observation access for some of the lessons.
