We are now in our "populations/ecosystems" unit of study. Students are doing very well. This week we are looking at food chains, food webs and food pyramids. We are especially looking at the flow of energy in an ecosystem. We will be building ecosystems in our classrooms. If students have access to a pond or stream it would be great for them to bring in a small catfish or bluegill to put into one of our aquariums. They may also bring in any organisms they may find under a rock or in a small dig as we also have a terrarium where we can make observations.
Below is a website that will let you practice what we have been learning in class. Challenge your parents to take the quiz. and score higher than you. If I were a betting person, my money would be on my students. i am confident that they can ace this quiz! So take it and prove me right! http://www.proprofs.com/quiz-school/story.php?title=energy-flow-through-ecosystems
