Defining 'ecosystem'

Today LH3 put their thinking caps on and investigated the meaning of 'ecosystem' - this is some of the information we found from the internet which we're now going to combine with our other findings and write our own definitions.  Have a look at our 'comment's below.



...in the hub we Built Knowledge = Found Out and Brainstormed.
At home we're Making Meaning = Considering and Knitting Together.
Then we're going to Apply Understandings together.



(We haven't yet discussed the importance of referencing our work so please excuse us this once!)

So check back this morning sometime and my year 5/6 class will leave you a message and let you know where they are in our beautiful country and what they think of your blog. We dont have a blog yet but we tweet occasionally on twitter if you wanted to check us out there, but I will let my guys tell you about that later this morning!

  8. I understand the way an ecosystem now works...I think the ecosystem is a good thing because, they depend on each other and they expect each other to help them. Its kind of like "Give and get back" you give them something they need to survive and they provide you with shelter,or protection etc.

  9. An ecosystem is when a 2 or more things (living and non living or living and living)depend on each other to survive.
    eg. clown fish can't live without anemone because the anemone protects the clown fish predators.
