What makes up a South Carolina community? What makes up
a South Carolina ecosystem?
Students will be given clues on cards about biotic and abiotic
factors from three ecosystems within three different regions
of South Carolina; a blackwater swamp from the Coastal Plain
region, a mountain stream from the Mountain region and a rocky
reef from the Ocean region. They will have to use those clues
to determine in which regional ecosystem they belong.
This activity should take approximately 30-45 minutes,
depending on class size.
