9/27 Garden day

The last few days the sixth grade class was gardening. The first day we cleaned. Emma and I cleaned and organized the hoop house and everyone else weeded the outside beds. The second day we split the beds into seeds and starts (which are plants that have started to grow) . We also got split up into partners, my partner was Maddy. At first I didn’t realize we were partnered and I was working with the Group then Shane told me to work with Maddy. Me and Maddy worked on lettuce starts. We also worked on food webs. We played this food chain game. Where we would draw cards of the food chain. We would have to build up the food web from the first to the fifth stage.  We also learned about Abiotic and Biotic. The meaning of Abiotic is non living such as water, soil, air, light, and minerals. The meaning of Biotic is living such as plants, animals, fungus, bacteria, and protist. Biotic is in the food web. The order of the food web is primary producer, primary consumers, secondary consumers, tertiary consumers, and then quaternary consumers.

  1. This is an excellent post-Analie, very well written. I will be interested to see how the plants grow in the garden versus the hoop house. I am glad you enjoyed the food web game – I hope it helped explain how we are all connected.
