FREE Ecology Crossword Puzzles

Here is a FREE teaching resource for you!

At the end of each school year, I evaluate the units and materials I used in my teaching during the course of the year.  One of my summer projects is always the same ..... Improve the weakest part of my curriculum!!

This summer I am working on my materials on "ecology and the environment".  As you can tell by my previous posts, I have completely revamped all of my teaching PowerPoints on ecology. In response to changing the core material that I teach during this unit, I am also making changes in the supplementary materials that I use to support my lectures.

I love crossword puzzles as a teaching and reviewing tool.  They are wonderful in hammering down key concepts, and it doesn't hurt to have reinforcement in spelling, either!  I have written one crossword puzzle for each of my ecology units:
1.  Introduction to Ecology
2.  Population Ecology
3.  Community Ecology
4.  Ecosystems and the Biosphere Part 1:  Energy Flow and the Recycling of Matter
5.  Ecosystems and the Biosphere Part 2:  Biomes of the World
6.  Humans and the Environment.

I have posted the complete set of 6 puzzles in my TeachersPayTeachers store as a FREE item.  I hope that you will take advantage of the free download and that you find them helpful in your teaching. Click the image below to download these puzzles.

Have Fun Teaching!
