edZOOcating: Ecosystem Superstars Challenge Series Lesson (Grades 3 - 8)

All animals are important, but some really steal the show.

Ecosystems are made of biotic and abiotic factors that each play a role. While every factor is important, some are critical for the heath of the environment! Explore these superstars and learn why they are so important.


In each of these five challenges, you will explore amazing plants and animals that have huge impacts on their ecosystem. The one thing these organisms all have in common is, without them, the natural world would be very different! Let’s check it out.
