For this project you will be designing your own imaginary ecosystem, including the living and nonliving components. You may work by yourself or with a partner. No more than two people may work together on the project. You may either hand draw your poster or can design it digitally using software of your choice. Posters will be placed on the walls around the science classroom once you have completed and submitted them.
