5th Grade Ecosystems
Fifth grade has been learning about ecosystems and food chains. They are constructing eco-columns which contain all of earth’s spheres, atmosphere, hydrosphere, geosphere, and biosphere. They played a food chain game to simulate a hawk’s food chain. The students were grasshoppers, frogs and hawks and had to problem solve to create a balanced food chain. They will be polluting three eco-columns to learn about pollution and its effects on the environment.
