Overview: Life in a Wetland

In this unit, students learn all about wetlands and ecosystems through classroom instruction, multimedia presentations, discussions, fi eld trips, lab experiments, and extensive print and Internet searches. Acting as naturalists, students discover complex living ecosystems consisting of producers, consumers, and decomposers that play interdependent roles in a unique food chain cycle that allows wetland residents to survive and reproduce. This knowledge is reinforced through diagramming exercises and games designed to jog students’ memories.
