Nature's Checks and Balances

Reinforce the concept of balance and imbalance within nature with the help of five activities and center rotations. Activities require scholars to read, complete graphic organizers, take part in hands-on learning opportunities, and conduct a research presentation. Center rotations inspire thought and get class members up and moving through physical activity, chart making, and learning games.
