"Think about the world beneath your feet."
Forest Floor Terrarium
Center allows students to learn about many aspects of a forest floor
ecosystem, including decomposition, the water cycle, food webs, the
needs of living things, and physical vs. chemical change over an extended
period. In addition, students conduct observations each week in teams
of three, record information about the forest floor environment, and
report their findings to the class.
Note: Children who are sensitive to fungi such as mold should not open the terrarium lid during observations. Setting up this Center in September is recommended.
