In this unit, you will explore living organisms and the relationships they have with their surroundings and the rest of the world. This will include learning about biotic and abiotic factors in an environment and various ecological relationships such as mutualism and symbiosis. In addition to studying how different organisms obtain their food, you will also study plant reproduction and photosynthesis. For your final project you will investigate a plant or animal of your choice and present your findings in a booklet or slideshow presentation.
