Science

  • Atoms are the basic unit of matter.
    They are made of protons, neutrons,
    and electrons.
     Magnets exert a force which can effect
    the motion of some objects.
     Energy and matter flow through
    ecosystems via a food web. The
    amount of energy in the system
    determines how many plants and
    animals it will support. Animals can be
    classified by their defining
    characteristics.
     Plants and animals adapt to survive in
    their environment. They compete with
    other plants and animals for limited
    resources in the ecosystem. Organisms
    in an ecosystem are interdependent.
    Removing a link from the food web has
    an effect on other organisms in the food
    web.
     The Sun, Moon, Earth System is a part
    of a larger system called the Solar
    System. The component parts of a
    solar system (planets, asteroids, comets
    etc.) are all held in orbit around a star
    (the sun) by the force of gravity.
    Technology and instruments have been
    developed to expand our scientific
    knowledge of space.
