STEM News – Year 9 Ecology Dioramas

The year 9 students have recently finished the topic of ecology. The students have learned about how different organisms interact with one another and their abiotic environment, what kind of adaptations organisms had to survive in their niche, and what would happen to different organisms in a food web if one of the organisms were removed. During the assessment week, their knowledge was put to the test through a STEAM challenge. In groups of three, they researched a specific ecosystem and then build some beautiful dioramas, which you can see below:
