Backyard Ecology:  An Ecological Assessment of Your Neck of the Woods

The first step in protecting our fragile environment is education. Students must learn about the ecology of their immediate area, and take steps to protect, conserve and improve their local environment. How aware are your students of the environment in which they live?  

This is the first assignment that I give my students when starting my first unit on ecology and the environment.  This thought-provoking activity requires the student to work through a series of questions about their local environment and their efforts to protect and conserve it.
