We have been working on ecosystems. The students were excited to build their own terrariums in class using cups, soil, and seeds. Some have already sprouted plants. In addition, we added a new friend to the classroom. His name is "Fishy" - he is a baby Betta fish. The students helped us to create an ecosystem in a bottle, with the fish providing nutrients for a plant that is planted in the inverted top of the bottle. Fishy is doing great and the plant is growing, providing a living example of how animals work together within an ecosystem.
