4th Grade – Science – Unit 8: Ecosystems
Dear 4th graders,
First things first. If you click on the picture above you will see a bigger copy of the beautiful drawing that Alejandro has made to illustrate this new unit, ecosystems. Alejandro dreams about being a movie director one day. I’m sure he will get to be whatever he wants to be. But for now he is a great artist, a wonderful student and a fabulous kid.
I have found a couple of interesting websites:
· http://www.fi.edu/tfi/units/life/habitat/habitat.html (Detailed but simple explanations with plenty of photographs and diagrams about ecosystems and habitats)
. http://www.kidport.com/RefLib/Science/ScienceIndex.htm (A reference library for science with detailed explanations and photographs of plants and animals)
· http://www.saisanctuary.com/index.htm (A site devoted to protect and preserve the last remaining natural Wild Places of the Earth)
And look, I have also found some videos:
One of the strangest ecosystems on earth lies deep under the ocean: Hydrothermal Vents
A very clarifying video about the food chain:
A very interesting one. Have in mind that they are just trying to sound sarcastic. I really hope this video makes you think about the importance of protecting the Earth’s forests and the wild life that they contain:
What do you think? I really would like to know your opinions.
So say we all!
