Science - Ms. Gunther

Ecology has been the focus of study within science class recently. Students will begin researching the characteristics of various biomes around the world and the organisms that cohabitate within them. Focusing on a particular biome, students will investigate the abiotic and biotic factors that exist within the environment; adaptations organisms have developed to survive within the environment, and will create food webs/chains representing the feeding relationships between species within the community.
Students had the opportunity to look at various micro-organisms during our diversity of living things unit.
