We have started our unit on ecosystems! We have been learning about levels of organization in nature: populations, communities, and ecosystems. Today, we were all assigned a species and we modelled a food web. We quickly realized that scavengers are very resourceful and that decomposers are necessary for all forms of life. Mme. Bunker came in as a human destructing the forest to build residential developments; we discussed a few other ways that humans can have a negative impact on ecosystems.
We are a class of Grade 6/7 students in Surrey, BC, Canada. This blog is one way we will share our learning with the world!
