Here is the video we watched today. You might like to watch it again with your parents.

We had a great discussion about what we will be learning about in this new unit of study for Social Studies. Wasn’t it cool that by the end of our first day learning about Our Fragile Earth, we now know what a natural resource is and how humans use some of those natural resources! Tell your parents what you learned today!

Tonight I would like you to find out what ecosystem means. (You might ask your parents, look in a dictionary, use the internet …..). Then I would like you to write in your own words what ecosystem means in the comments on this post. Tomorrow we will look at everyone’s comments and see if we can write a really good definition for ecosystem.
