Fish Tank Ecosystem

Last week I asked the students of 4A whether they thought our classroom fish tank was an ecosystem. They used ‘Explain Everything’ to present their findings.

Well done 4A!

Do you have any other types of ecosystems at your home?

Fish Tank Ecosystem

What is an Ecosystem?

The e school today website says,

“An ecosystem includes all of the living things (plants, animals and organisms) in a given area, interacting with each other, and also with their non-living environments (weather, earth, sun, soil, climate, atmosphere).”

Is our fish tank in our classroom an ecosystem? What do you think?

Visit the e school today website and decide – yes or no?

Be sure to justify your answer with reasons.
