Life science focuses on the living elements of our world, their interaction with each other, and how their interaction with living and nonliving things allows them to live and survive in an ecosystem. During the “Relationships” and “Structures and Functions” units, students investigate the important role of ecosystems in supporting life, how energy derived from the Sun flows within them, and how they can change over time.
