2 In this activity you will learn all about the types of ecosystem
In this activity you will learn all about the types of ecosystem. You can read all of the material and watch a short video on ecosystems. After you have read the material and watched the video, you can take the short quiz to see how much you learned!! Now, let’s get started! Start!

3 Teacher’s Page Environment & Learners Objectives
Typical U.S. classroom. In a computer lab where each child has their own computer and set of headphones 4th grade lower level science students 9-10 years old Given characteristics or photographs, students can determine whether an ecosystem is aquatic or terrestrial with 100% accuracy. Given a list of plants or animals, students can determine which type of ecosystem it is with 100% accuracy. Given an example ecosystem, students can identify which type of ecosystem it is with 100% accuracy.

6 Video Here is a short video of plants and animals and what type of ecosystem they belong to. After you watch this, you can either take the quiz or learn more about the different types of ecosystems! Pictures in video from: Quiz

7 Terrestrial Ecosystems
Terrestrial ecosystems are ecosystems on land. They can be as big as a continent, or as small as an island! They make up about 28% of the entire World’s ecosystems. Picture retrieved from: Info for Terrestrial Ecosystems retrieved from: Quiz

8 What Animals Live There?
Many different animals call terrestrial ecosystems home. The most common are: Birds Mammals of all shapes and sizes insects Bird picture retrieved from: Insect picture retrieved from: Quiz

9 What Plants Live There? Many plants also call terrestrial ecosystems their home also, we see many of them everyday! Common plants are: Flowering plants, like roses Mosses, like moss that grows on rocks Conifers, which are pine trees Rose pictures retrieved from: Moss: Pine tree: Quiz

10 Examples of Terrestrial Ecosystems
Forests Deserts Grasslands Forest: Desert: Grassland: Quiz

11 Do you think that your back yard is a terrestrial ecosystem? Yes No
Think About It! Do you think that your back yard is a terrestrial ecosystem? Yes No

12 Well, Let’s think about this…
Is you backyard on land? Let’s try that again!

13 Correct! Of course it is. We live on land, so we are all part of a terrestrial ecosystem! Great Job! Now, lets learn about something else, or you can take the quiz! Quiz

14 Aquatic Ecosystems Quiz
There is something special about aquatic ecosystems. There is actually two different types of aquatic ecosystems. One type is freshwater The other type is saltwater. Both types, however, are ecosystems that are in the water. Picture retrieved from: Aquatic information retrieved from: And: Quiz

15 Freshwater Ecosystems
Freshwater ecosystems are places in the water where there isn’t much salt in the water. These include places like lakes, rivers, and creeks. Lake retrieved from: River retrieved from: Quiz

16 What Animals Live in Freshwater Ecosystems?
A lot of animals live in freshwater ecosystems. Animals include: Freshwater fish, these fish can’t live in the ocean because it is too salty for them, so they live in freshwater Amphibians, like frogs Reptiles, like water snakes Fish: Frog: Snake: Quiz

17 What Plants Live in Freshwater Ecosystems?
Many plants call freshwater ecosystems their home, even if we can see them from the surface of the water Some plants are: Cattails Grasses Trees Cattails: Grasses: Quiz

18 Saltwater Ecosystems Quiz
Saltwater ecosystems are again in the water, but unlike freshwater ecosystems, saltwater ecosystems have very salty water. They also make up the vast majority of the Earth’s ecosystems. They are the world’s largest ecosystems. Some examples of saltwater ecosystems are oceans and coral reefs. Water picture retrieved from: Coral reef picture retrieved from: Quiz

19 What Plants are in Saltwater Ecosystems?
Seaweed is one of the most common types of plants that live in saltwater ecosystems. Another plant that lives in the ocean is kelp. Kelp picture: Seaweed picture: Quiz

20 What Animals Live in Saltwater Ecosystems?
There are so many animals that live in saltwater ecosystems Animals that live in saltwater ecosystems include: Fish Sharks Jellyfish Whales Fish picture: Shark picture: Jellyfish: Quiz

21 If you were a sea turtle, would you call aquatic ecosystems your home?
Think About It! If you were a sea turtle, would you call aquatic ecosystems your home? Yes No

22 Oops, lets think about it again
Where do you think SEA turtles live?
