You  have been selected to be part of Ms. Adams's Explorer Club.  You will be exploring various parts of the world to learn about ecosystems. 

Each member of the class will participate in all of the parts of the mission. These parts are listed at the "TASK" tab. There will be directions at each site when you click on it. You will need to keep a journal of your clues, pictures and drawings, and answers to the questions and the mysteries. You will then use your journal notes and present your findings in a creative diorama or travel brochure.

When you complete all the parts of this mission you should be able to:

1.  Describe your ecosystem of choice: what they are, their location, how they are built, their importance as an ecosystem and a resource.
2.  Identify organisms that live in and around the ecosystem. 
3.  Identify adaptations that help specific organisms survive.
4.  Describe problems that are currently impacting the ecosystem,  especially the coral reefs.
