Make a Woodland Terrarium
There’s no better time than summer to explore nature. An ecosystem is a community of plants, animals and smaller organisms that live, feed, reproduce and interact in the same area. Ecosystems can be large like an ocean or small like your backyard. Make your own ecosystem for a bug’s-eye view of science at work! Just find a clear container with a clear lid (or stretch plastic wrap in place of a lid) and you’re on your way.
