Welcome to the Wonderful World of Science!

We are continuing to explore the ecosystem by learning how organisms and their nonliving world can be categorized and investigating how both biotic (living factors) and abiotic (nonliving factors) affect one another and determine if an organism can live there. There will be a unit test on Wednesday 10/18.

 

Homework:
 Monday: Finish your symbiosis story, work on your proof of study (due Wednesday)

In the story, students must make up two fictional organisms, describe how each is affected by their relationship with one another,

and include a colored illustration. The type of symbiosis should be written on the back of the paper.

 

Tuesday: Finish your analysis questions, finish your proof of study (due tomorrow)
Wednesday: Work on finishing your unit review (due Friday)
Thursday: Enjoy your night
Friday: Enjoy a fun and safe weekend.
