Warm weather often spurs us to get outside and visit New Hampshire’s forests–and spring is also a good time to practice your tree identification skills!
When we study ecosystems, one important question is ‘what eats what?’ A food web is a great way to answer that question. In this video, students can learn about food webs and the producers, consumers, and decomposers that make them up, and then use their newfound knowledge to play an online food chain game or answer a Kahoot! quiz.
As we start to look forward to spring, take a brief break to explore the multi-faceted science behind our favorite multi-faceted precipitation: snow! Download the self-guided lesson plan as either a PowerPoint file or a .pdf, or just use the activity packet to guide your exploration! Either way, we hope this makes the last leg of winter a little more fun.
This narrated Powerpoint teaches students about Habitats, Ecosystems, and Biomes, and some of New Hampshire’s unique habitats!

This lesson consists of two videos that tell the story of Twiggy, a young tree who lost his mom. As students follow his adventures, they’ll use a tree ID worksheets to identify the trees Twiggy encounters along the way.
A worksheet that helps students think about the changes spring brings and encourages them to explore nature in their own backyard. And a scavenger hunt for things they might find outside their windows.
