At this station, Juniors and Intermediates will answer multiple-choice questions about each ecosystem. Here is a sample multiple choice question:
All plants native to bottomland hardwood forests:
A. only survive in dry conditions
B. survive in both wet and dry conditions
C. do not lose their leaves in winter
D. are toxic to wildlife
In addition, Intermediates will be asked multiple choice questions that reference identifying characteristics of the four representative plant species for each ecosystem. The species that Intermediates need to know for each ecosystem are shown in the table below.
To prepare, Juniors should read the Forest Story about adventures in each of their designated ecosystems. Intermediates should read the informative text about their designated ecosystems, and also study the website descriptions of the four plant species for each ecosystem.
