|For the 2017-2018 school year, it is possible some of the stations for this program may change to better support the Next Generation Science Standards.
Fifth and sixth grade students explore Modjeska Wilderness Preserve during this one day field trip. The learning stations include:
Students participate in hands-on stations to learn about some of the functions that animals serve in an ecosystem and how the animals can be classified.
Students work in cooperative groups at lab stations to learn how plants adapt to dry conditions in the chaparral ecosystem.
Participating in a demonstration and discussion of energy pyramids in ecosystems helps students understand the interdependence of biotic and abiotic things.
Students see and touch a live mammal and reptile representative of animals in this ecosystem and learn how their adaptations enable them to survive.
Students participate in several hands-on activities to learn about the source of their local water, the water cycle, the amount of fresh water available on Earth, and water reuse.
