After you have completely illustrated your ecosystem, you will begin the written portion of your assignment.

A paragraph (at least 4 sentences) explaining the features of your ecosystem, where it is located, and how energy flows through the ecosystem.

You will need to make a T-chart, listing at least 5 of the abiotic and biotic features in your ecosystem.
