Mrs. Donna Gallagher’s fifth grade class Longview Elementary have been studying and observing their completed ecosystems for science class. Using recycled two-liter bottles,the students planted rye, mustard and alfalfa grass seeds in the terrarium.
They added crickets and isopods as well. The students built an aquarium that included gravel, algae, elodea, duckweed plants, pond snails and mosquito fish. Then, they connected the terrarium and aquarium using parts of the recycled bottles.
The students recorded their observations of the completed ecosystem in their science notebook.
Alana Rothenstein and Grace Shappley in Mrs. Donna Gallagher’s 5th grade science class at Longview Elementary School, enjoy observing the ecosystem they put together with recycled 2 liter bottles, several weeks ago.
