The sixth graders began their Environmental Science year exploring the great outdoors at TEVA and learning about the environment as a whole. We have now come full circle, looking at the smaller outdoor elements of our environment. With a better understanding of Ecosystems and biomes the students can examine all the natural resources and evaluate how the many biotic and abiotic factors work hand and hand. They are investigating how everything connects to their own backyard by testing the water chemistry in the Great Oak Park behind our school.
