Third-graders learn about food webs

Third-graders at Bacon District and Phenix Elementary schools have been discussing ecosystems and how plants and animals are dependent on one another. The focus has been food chains and food webs. In the library, Mrs. Watkins had the students research what plants and animals lived in particular ecosystems using nonfiction books. Students worked in small groups finding the information and then they had to create a food chain that would be found in the ecosystem. Mrs. Julie Hamlett and Mrs. Patricia Mays from the Southside Soil and Water Conservation District were invited to talk about food webs with the students. Pictured are, from left, Isaiah Felix, Mrs. Patricia Mays, Lyana Davis, Malaysha Hurt, Olivia Baker, Ryan Elder and Shaheerah Abdus-Salaam.
