Where do you think the items came from originally?
Do you think the items look the same today as they did a month ago?
What happened to the matter in each item over the past month?
Do you think the items will be the same forever? Why or why not?
What do all of the items in the bag have in common?
Do you notice any relationships between the items in the bags? They all...
What evidence do you have that the items were all once part of a living thing?
Another name for "nature's waste" is "organic remains." These are all organisms that are no longer living, or parts of organisms that are discarded, excreted, or no longer needed. What other examples of organic remains can you think of?
What would happen to each item from your bag if it were left outside? What might it look like in 6 months? What would cause it to change?
What would eventually happen to the waste MATTER in each type of organic remain?
Why isn't the earth just piled up with all the matter from nature's waste?
Why could all of the items in the mystery bags be classified as nature's waste?
Do you think that all living things generate waste? What makes you think that?
I could not find my video anywhere, even youtube, so Ill explain that we have a constitution with our prime minister sometimes approving laws and also denying and the people can also change or edit a law.
Plants need energy and matter to grow. Where do plants get their ENERGY?
Where do plants get their MATTER?
Where do plants get their FOOD (be careful - this is a trick question)?
Why are plants called Producers?
What would happen if plants didn't have a way to get energy?
What would happen to animals if there were no plants to eat?
What are some of the LIVING components of a plant "system"? (A plant "system" is everything that a plant needs to survive and everything it produces.)
What are some of the NON-LIVING components of a plant "system"?
In what ways do the components of the system interact?
What matter is transported in and out of the plant system?
1. They get their energy from the Sun, Water and some more things. This is called photosynthesis.
2. They get their matter from air like carbon dioxide, but they let out oxygen. The matter helps the plants with growth.
3. They get their food, but get energy from the sun and water.
4. Plants are called producers because they don't need food to get energy, instead they make their own energy from the Sun.
5. They would die (the plants) and everything would happen the same way as it did it in answer 6.
6. The animals would die because they wouldn't get to eat the herbivores, so they would die because they don't have anything to eat and all the species in the world would die.
7. The soil is almost living because its made up of dead plants and animals which used to be living which was then spread out by Earthworms (which are actually living).
8. The sun isn't living and gives the plants energy and same with the water except the water helps the plants by not letting them get too dry.
9. The water goes into the soil where the plants then drink it and the sun evaporates the water.
10. Its air, which is a gas. It gets transported in the plant (carbon dioxide) and also goes out of the plant (oxygen).
Choose one of your Food Chains that you created and explain how it works.
Can a Food Web be considered a "system"? Why or why not?
What happens if a plant or animal all of a sudden disappears from the food web?
Using this food chain, "sunlight to apple to worm to bird to cat," How do organisms in this food chain get the matter they need for body repair and growth?
Using the same food chain in #4, How do organisms in that food chain get the energy they need for body warmth and motion?
What do you think happens to the matter that is NOT used by the organisms in a food chain or food web? Is it wasted or does something else happen?
1. I did a simple and common food chain with the plants, rabbits and an eagle. This system works with the animals eating each other and the plants getting their energy from the sun. 2. yes, because the system is all of the animals (and plants) getting energy from either plants are other animals so they get energy and the population is stable. 3. the population of the animal it has been eating would get out of hand and soon there would not be anything to eat because the animals ate everything. 4. they get it with calcium and calories from the food they eat. The more you go in the food chain, the less calories/energy the animal gets from eating. 5. They get it from the animal which ate the plant which got the energy they got from the sun which provides warmth. 6. It either stores as fat and you gain weight or you poop it out maybe.
