We are beginning our study of ecosystems this week. What is an ecosystem? An ecosystem includes all of the living things (plants, animals and organisms) in a given area, interacting with each other, and also with their non-living environments (weather, earth, sun, soil, climate, atmosphere).
In an ecosystem, each organism has its’ own special role to play. We will use Scholastic Study Jams Science: Ecosystems to learn more about ecosystems. This is a great website to learn and review our learning in science. Click on the link above to watch the video and learn more!
This wonderful and funny video above was posted from Mrs. N-C and The Terrific Tuis from New Zealand who were part of the the Student Blogging Challenge 2014. They used this for a creative writing project to help them come up with strong descriptive sentences. It is hard not to laugh with the intense music playing, and the perfect camera shots of the main characters, Squirrel and Eagle, in their forest habitat. What a great way way to get inspired to write. Thanks for sharing your great idea, Terrific Tuis! We will try it out.
As a part of the Student Blogging Challenge 2017 we are sharing our learning with others globally and are inspired by them to explore new ideas for integrating technology in the classroom. Check out all the great blogs we are following listed under Student Blogging Challenge 2017 on the right sidebar of our blog.
