Life Science Continues

5th graders have recently studied and compared Inherited Traits and Learned Behaviors.  They constructed a “Reebop” using only Inherited Traits passed down from parent to offspring.  This week, students will examine Food Chains and Food Webs as they research how the Sun’s energy moves and flows through an Ecosystem.  Nature Center observations and sketches will be included.  5th graders can always find examples of these concepts around their homes and in neighborhoods.   Grade sheets in lab folders / journals should be as follows:
