The week of 9/18/17 – 9/22/17 will see 5th graders studying characteristics, structures, and behaviors on organisms that allow for survival in a given ecosystem. These features actually determine which ecosystems an organism will call home. Polar bears have NEVER been observed in the Nature Center behind our school for a reason. Hands – on labs and investigations include the Structural Inherited Traits Spinner activity, Comparing Structures / Adaptations / Functions lab, and possible Nature Center observations.
GRADES THIS WEEK:
Grade #4: Life Cycles Within Ecosystems
Grade #5: Unit 30: Characteristics
