Fourth graders are continuing to learn about the polar regions. Mrs. Lambert and Mr. Morse classes visited the Discovery Lab this week and Ms. Allen and Ms. Royston’s classes will visit next week. We are focusing on Science SOL 4.5 (see below). Students visited two science stations for 40 minutes each to work with the 4.5 concepts. The stations included the ARCTIC CHILL board game and the JASON Project Arctic Food Web Digital Lab.
4.5 The student will investigate and understand how plants and animals in an ecosystem interact with one another and the nonliving environment. Key concepts include
a)behavioral and structural adaptations;
b)organization of communities;
c)flow of energy through food webs;
d)habitats and niches
