Unit Plan

The unit plan covers 4th grade science and focuses on organisms and environments. The unit is based around the essential question, "How could introducing a new organism into an ecosystem impact other organisms that live within?" In order to answer the essential question, scaffolding questions are supplemented and include questions like: 

What type of role does the sun play in an ecosystem?

What is a producer and consumer, and what do they need to survive?

What is a food web, and how is energy distributed through all living organisms?

How could the absence of an organism affect the food web?
