Next week students will be studying Ecosystems in their Science textbooks starting on p. 82. In order to prepare them for that unit they created their own miniature ecosystems with partners today. We went to the boat lake and collected biotic and abiotic pieces of the Boat Lake ecosystem and put them in our own two liter bottles. Some of the biotic factors (organisms) can be see with the eye but many are too tiny. Next Monday we will analyze these ecosystems underneath the microscope and will report our findings!
