Ms. Collins' class explores living and nonliving parts of our ecosystem! On our field trip to Boch Hollow Nature Preserve our guides taught us how important each part of the Ecosystem is and how they work together. Students were excited to put their knowledge of living and nonliving to the test out in nature. Students sat quietly and observed the nature around them while writing in their journals. Then, they were able to walk around a creek to explore all of the living and nonliving items around the creek and make predictions about how they use each other to survive. It was an awesome hands on experience that put the concepts learned in the classroom to life!
