Connections in nature

  1. 1.  This year we have spent time identifying connections we have with others: and other LOCAL communities
  2. 2.  But we all belong to a MUCH larger community…one that stretches far beyond the boundaries and comforts of home, school, our suburb or even our city.  Humans share with many other species of plants and animals.
  3. 3.  These two pictures showed an ecosystem.  Ecosystems can be MASSIVE like an entire desert or SMALL like a rock pool.  When you take a close look at an ecosystem you notice LOTS of species of plants, animals and smaller organisms. Do you think these organisms have any relationships or links to each other?
  4. 4.  They are NOT just a RANDOM gathering of organisms.  They are a COMMUNITY and they INTERACT with each other.  They are also LINKED with the non-living elements such as sunlight, water, soil and air.  Each organism has a role and each one depends on other things in the ecosystem.
  5. 5.  Organisms in an ecosystem WORK TOGETHER like people do in social communities.  All parts work together to make a balanced system.
  6. 6.  All living things are connected to others.  Every plant and animal species, no matter how big or small, depends on another plant or animal species for its survival.  They are all important parts of a ecosystems.  Organisms in an ecosystem can be divided into three categories:
  7. 7. PRODUCERS  Green plants that make their own food using the sun’s energy during PHOTOSYNTHESIS. CONSUMERS  Animals that get their energy by eating producers (plants) or other animals. DECOMPOSERS  Organisms such as bacteria and fungi that break down dead plants and animals, turning them into materials that go into the soil for plants to use. And the whole process is back to the beginning again…
  8. 8. http://teacher.scholastic.com/activities/explorer/ecosystems/be_an_explorer/map/foodweb_play.htm  The links between producers, consumers and decomposers can be represented by FOOD CHAINS.
  9. 9.  Ecosystems are in a delicate balance.  If one organism’s source of food disappears many other organisms in the food web are affected.  Populations may dwindle to extinction while others may explode and over populate. Humans have affected ecosystems in almost every way imaginable. We need to take responsibility for the consequences of our actions.
  10. 10. http://www.flickclip.com/flicks/beemovie.html
  11. 11.  Nearly one-third of the world’s crops are dependent on honeybees for pollination!  Without bees a HUGE PERCENTAGE of the FOOD we eat would be UNAVAILABLE.  A world without honeybees would mean a world without fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds.
  12. 12. http://vimeo.com/45684169/
  13. 13.  Throughout the history of the Earth, the balance found in ecosystems has been disrupted by NATURAL DISASTERS such as FIRES, FLOODS, STORMS, and VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS.  In recent years, however, MANKIND has increasingly been affecting the many ecosystems around the world.  As the years pass, the degree of our impact is getting worse and worse.
