You are in the 4th grade I see. How do you
like it? Do you have friends in your class? What
about other classes? Do you play with the 2nd
graders? I'm asking you all of these questions
because it will help answer your question. The
dictionary says that an ecosystem is "An
integrated system of living species, their
habitat, and the processes that affect them."
Well what does that mean? It means that an
ecosystem is a one word that includes all the
animals, plants, land, and water that are found in
One ecosystem is the North Pole. This is called
the arctic ecosystem, and includes polar bears,
birds, some plants, fish, walrus, the icebergs,
the frozen dirt, and even the germs. In a way,
your classroom is an ecosystem, with the kids, the
teacher, the plants, the furniture, and all your
toys and learning supplies.
