It's a new year and we have all new things to learn in science! We will begin this week with a review of cycles in ecosystems (Carbon - Oxygen Cycle and the Nitrogen Cycle) and have a small quiz over these cycles on Wednesday/Thursday.
Friday we will begin our 5th unit on "Matter". Mattrer is "anything that takes up space and has mass" and comes in 3 basic forms: solid, liquid, and gas. In addition to this we will also learn about the 4th and lesser known state of matter... plasma!
