    1. 1. Ecosystem Engage -- Teacher Notes <ul><li>Slides 2 – 11 are biotic specimens </li></ul><ul><li>Slides 12 – 25 are abiotic specimens </li></ul><ul><li>Slides 2 – 6, 12 - 14 are from a salt water ecosystem </li></ul><ul><li>Slides 7 – 10 are from a wetland ecosystem </li></ul><ul><li>Slides 15 – 25 are from land and wetland ecosystems </li></ul><ul><li>Slides 15, 16, 19, 20, 22, 25 are based on fresh water </li></ul><ul><li>PROCEDURE: </li></ul><ul><li>Print pictures as handouts (2 or 4 to a page) in color if possible. Cut pictures apart. Laminate. </li></ul><ul><li>Hand a picture to each student as they enter the room. </li></ul><ul><li>At your signal, have students get up and without talking form 2 groups for Biotic and Abiotic specimens. Tell them they have 2 minutes to do this. Emphasize that they are to do this without talking. </li></ul><ul><li>When complete, have students explain their reasoning for joining a particular group. </li></ul><ul><li>Next, have students form groups based on specimens that belong in the same ecosystem. DO NOT tell them how many ecosystems there are. Give them 3 minutes, and there should be no talking during this exercise as well. </li></ul><ul><li>When complete, have students explain their reasoning for the groups chosen. </li></ul><ul><li>Students should now be able to come up with their own definitions of biotic, abiotic, and ecosystems. </li></ul><ul><li>Identification of each specimen is located as Notes under each slide. </li></ul>
