We will begin the Ecology unit this week. This week will focus on an overview of main ideas related to ecology. Monday we learned about living & nonliving environments. Today we discussed the interactions among living organisms, and will finish up our discussion tomorrow talking about symbiosis. Thursday we will learn about how matter & energy is constantly recycled in an ecosystem.
Next week is Washington DC / Heritage Week. We will continue with ecology when everyone returns Monday June 3.
Great job on the astronomy unit post-assessment, everyone. The class average was 90%! Making this the best performance on a science test this year. Way to go!
Now that astronomy is over, we will complete some short mini-units on Human Body Systems, Chemical Reactions, and Technology/Engineering. After these lessons, we will move into Ecology, which will take us to the end of the school year.
Remember the Science MCAS is May 14 & 15.
