What’s In A Log?

Grade 9 students in Ms. Jansen’s science class discovered small ecosystems within rotting logs today. They dissected logs to learn about qualitative and quantitative observations that can be obtained from ecosystems in places one never thinks to look. Using the condition of their logs and the creatures were found inside of them, students inferred each log’s journey from its starting point as a seed until it arrived in front of them in the classroom.
