Three simple ways for science teachers to assess the level of understanding their students have of the levels of organization in the environment. Examples of living and nonliving parts of the environment can be classified by asking a series of questions.

STEM: Ecological Organization Formative Assessments

This will help the students sort and categorize the different levels of environment; this is important when we discuss specific levels.
