Science 

Last week, we learned how matter and/or energy moves through an ecosystem and how disruptions or changes to this cycle affect everything else in the ecosystem.  This week, we are going to analyze different types of specific ecosystems and explore how biotic and abiotic factors interact with and depend on one another in some specific examples.  I do expect to do a few small checkpoints during the week and I am hoping to continue work on our final unit ecosystem projects..   As always, you can keep up with our day to day assignments and any changes to this schedule at https://stpaul5thscience.blogspot.com/
