HELP
1. As a biologist you will receive a list of scientific names (in Latin of course) of different species of your ecosystem. Then you will receive a key-picture about the biotic elements of your ecosystem in order to know – at least- the kind of living beings you are looking for.
Then you will go through all the information through the pages listed below and try to complete the different worksheets
.

2.
You will be provided with a blank map of Andalusia with your assigned area.
3.
Then you will have a look at all the information on the links below and try to complete the different activities.




Activity 1 GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION

Complete the coordinates (longitude/latitude) of the four point or your area in the following chart:

Activity 2. LIVING BEINGS IDENTIFICATION

The best way to start this part is to find and colour the species (they can be plants, animals, trees etc) in your picture that correspond to the numbers in your chart.
Then, you have to complete an identification card (below) for each species in your chart. Below you have the links you must visit to find the information you need about your species.You can also include a picture of the plant, animal, tree etc
