This week, we will continue learning about food chains and food webs. We will also discuss what happens when there are changes in an ecosystem, and what happens when a species becomes scarce, extinct, or overabundant. We kicked off the week with a perfect Earth Day project, "Protect Our Species." Students are researching different endangered species and creating posters to teach the school about why we need the species, what are threats to them, and how we can save them. The kids a re really excited about it!
On a side note, if you have Netflix, the series "Our Planet" is so cool! I just watched the episode on Jungles, and it goes right along with everything we are discussing this unit. Worth a watch as a family!
