        Ecosystem Services Charade Cards l MEECS Eco Bio Video Lesson 6

        People everywhere often take for granted the countless ways that ecosystems help make human life possible. Much of the work done by ecosystems is difficult to watch or see, so people often take these “secret services” for granted. Just remember, while you are eating, sleeping, working, driving, or watching TV, forests are helping to clean the air, far-away oceans are regulating the climate, and wetlands are helping to purify water, minimize storm damage, and perform flood control. In this activity, students participate in a charades-like activity to learn about some of the secret services provided by ecosystems and the species within them. (This video lesson highlights activity 2 from lesson 4 of the Michigan Environmental Education Curriculum Support (MEECS) Ecosystems and Biodiversity Unit.)
