Ecology Unit

August 8th we are beginning our unit on Ecology.

Students will begin the unit this week by learning the characteristics of living things, and the difference between living and non-living things.

The students will be given a unit vocabulary handout that they will complete as the unit progresses.

We will finish the unit learning about how ecosystems are organized, and the levels of energy that are available in an ecosystem (trophic levels).
