This Earth Day (April 22), plan to use one of these lessons to show how we work to protect our planet!
The Farm as an Ecosystem

Students will learn how a farm is an ecosystem, identify the parts of the farm ecosystem and how they interact and depend on one another, identify the producers and consumers in a farm ecosystem, model the food chain/food web within a farm ecosystem, learn how changes affect the farm ecosystem and availability of food, identify the natural resources in a farm ecosystem and ways to protect them, and understand the size of their personal ecosystem.
