Schoolyard and Urban Ecosystems

When you think of an ecosystem, you may think of those forests where you go hiking or camping. But did you know that your own schoolyard has all of the things required to be an ecosystem?

A community of living things (plants, animals, insects, fungi, and bacteria) along with non-living things (sunlight, clouds, soil, water, rocks) make up a schoolyard ecosystem.

Students, you will be ecologists and learn about the charactertistics of a schoolyard ecosystem and what it is needed for a healthy schoolyard ecosystem.
