Excited About Ecosystems- 5th Graders Share What They've Learned!
In science, the fifth graders' first unit of study was ecosystems. An ecosystem is a community of living organisms and nonliving components of their environment interacting as a system.
Students learned about many different vocabulary words such as, producers, consumers, decomposers, biotic, abiotic, carnivore, herbivore, omnivore, predator, prey, population, community, ecologist, estuary, terrestrial, aquatic, photosynthesis, food chain , food web, and many more….please ask any fifth grader for the definition and they should be more than happy to define any of these words for you!
Welcome Ms. Steed, a Visiting International Teacher!
We are so lucky to have Ms. Katie Steed here at Antioch! She traveled 4,000 miles from Chelmsford, Essex (just a few miles from London, England) to join our second grade team. After arriving in North Carolina in August, Ms. Steed worked hard to settle into her classroom even before she was moved into her new home!
