3rd Grade Specials
NFS Curriculum Update :: December, 2014
Students have learned about animal adaptions and habitats. We explore what makes up both a habitat (what an animal needs to survive) and its environment (everything that surrounds an animal). We learned biotic (living) and abiotic (non-living) parts of an environment and were able to differentiate between the two. This week we move onto the characteristics that make up a living thing (organism). During this short month we will learn about consumers, producers, and decomposers. We will focus on the food chain and food webs and understand how the whole cycle starts with the Sun. We will also play Eco Fluxx to help solidify the concepts.
