5TH GRADE: ECOSYSTEMS
In 5th grade we are studying ecosystems!
Here you have some information about them!
Ecosystem is a combination of two words,
Ecological & System
It is related to
which means the study of the interaction between living and non-living things in a specific area.
There can be several
types of ecosystems
e.g. fresh water ecosystem like
in river, or pond ecosystem,desert ecosystem, ecosystem in cold regions like
Tundra ecosystem or Antarctica ecosystem.
And...What is a BIOME?
is a large area with similar microorganisms.
Each of these large communities contain species that are adapted to its varying conditions of water, heat, and soil.
There is a slight difference between the two
is much smaller than a biome.
Conversely, a biome can be thought of many similar ecosystems throughout the world
An ecosystem can be as large as the Sahara Desert, or as small as a puddle.
