This cafe is designed to use for a middle school ecology unit.

First Doc is the Menu page.



Second Doc has all of the menu options, except Maine Explorer, which is a trademarked software program available only on the Maine MLTI laptops.

Sorry I put them all together in one document, but that is how I keep them together on my computer.

I got the original Cafe off the NSTA listserv... From Margie Gifford, giffordm@k12tn.net Thanks!!

I then adopted it to the resources I had available. The "Gator Aid" Is adapted from Ranger Ricks Wetlands. The Ecology tidbit uses "Kids Discover Ecology " The Invasive tid bit uses the "Natural Inquirer: Invasives" from the USDA. (Linked in the document)


During this unit, I also use Teachers Domain Ecosystems lesson plan to introduce energy flow through an ecosystem, and we dissect owl pellets. I would recommend doing a unit on photosynthesis before this unit so students understand that initial energy transfer.

Feel free to edit, change, remove and add.
