How do living and nonliving things interact in the world around us? What are some ways that humans have an impact on the world? With all of this time at home, many of us are able to explore the natural world more than ever before, leaving us with many firsthand observations as well as questions. We will start and end our week talking about ecosystems and the impact people have on the natural world. Through videos, online research, and group discussions, we will create digital projects about biomes, animal adaptations, endangered animals, and human impacts on the environment. Be ready to dive into scientific research and share in some exciting discussions!
