We began our study about ecosystems with discussion about the different components of an eco-system – producers, consumers, and decomposers, population and community. The children were particularly intrigued about the process of decomposition. We discussed worms, parts of a worm and observed what would happen to food scraps if left out undisturbed for a long time. We then went on to discuss mold. We also discussed food chains and food webs.
Ms. Michelle guided the children to create their beautiful Winter Olympics-inspired art. In Music, Ms. Amy has been teaching the children a beautiful new song written by her.
Next month, we will continue with eco systems and begin our study about Biomes of North America.
