Fourth grade students recently read a nonfiction story entitled "Ecology for Kids" which highlighted various ecosystems and the balance that is needed to protect them. Students learned about the essential components needed for animals to survive in their habitat and participated in a culminating activity form Project Wild entitled Oh Deer! in which they gathered data then worked collaboratively to create a graph that shows how populations change. Students discovered that the population shifts when necessary resources are available versus when the resources in the habitat are limited.
The eager learners enjoyed being engaged while learning about reading, science, and math. John Chancey is the principal at Wacona Elementary School.
