Ecosystems and Winter Word Search

Hello 3D!  I miss seeing everyone.  I will definitely be back by Monday. I’m sorry that I have been out sick for so long.  I found the following BrainPop videos that tie in nicely with our ecosystem unit of study.  Have fun learning!

When you finish the science videos, here are two winter word searches you can try.  Just click and drag on the word you find with your mouse. When you find all the words from the word bank on the right, the game will ask if you want to download the game, please say no. Click out of the tab and come back to my blog to try the other word search. Good luck searching!

Fossils and Ecosystems

Good morning 3D! Take some time today to check out these videos about Ecosystems and Fossils. Our new science unit will talk a lot about these two scientific topics. Feel free to watch the videos (with your headphones on) and of course, read the books. Remember if you want the text read aloud, click the button on the top that says, “Read to Me.” The books are long, so you may have to visit this page again during CCT or at home. Enjoy learning new things by reading the non-fiction texts below.




In our science Unit 2, you are learning about relationships in past and present ecosystems. In class we have been analyzing data to interpret the environments in which organisms have lived long ago, and we are exploring the relationships between habitats and the organisms that live in them today.

Our BIG IDEA is: How do organisms interact with each other and their environment to survive?

In addition the past few lessons we have been learning about geologic timelines and fossils. Please read the article below Earth’s Systems:Geologic Time.

A padlet is provided below for you to record something new that you learned from this article.

After you have read and completed the padlet, you can rewatch the videos below to support your thinking and understanding from class. Enjoy!
