This week in Science....
State Standard that we will cover this week: Students can explain how the number of organisms an ecosystem can support depends on adequate biotic (living) resources (e.g., plants, animals) and abiotic (non-living) resources (e.g., light, water and soil).
Today in Science we discussed last night’s Supermoon and how a Supermoon occurs. We will continue to learn about the transfer of energy in an ecosystem and the loss of energy in each trophic level.
Lab – We will be making Decomposition Chambers in lab next week. If you have any empty 2 liter plastic bottles, please send them to school by December 11th.
