Ecosystems

Our latest focus during Inquiry went from Migration into Ecosystems. We had a preview (or review in some cases) about Ecosystems last month when a few of our parents came in and did an Outdoor Classroom Lesson on both habitats and ecosystems.

Today we talked about producers, consumers and decomposers.
During the rest of the week, as we continue to turn our notes about our animal we researched into essays, we’ll identify our animals as one of the above.

We also talked about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. I was pleased to report to the class that these words come from the Latin root of vorare which means to eat or devour. Our Latin homework tonight was to work with this root word!
