HOW IS LIFE MAINTAINED?
Our second unit of the year, focuses on the process that living things go through to stay alive. We will investigate the interactions all living things have with their environments and with each other. Our focus will be on the relationship of the processes in direct relation to the Carbon Cycle. The reactions of Photosynthesis in Plants produce specific components that are needed for Cellular Respiration reactions in animals. All of the cycles are related - and that's what makes the world go round! HAHA! MAKE SURE YOU STAY ON TOP OF VOCAB FOR THIS UNIT!
