As an introduction to our year studying Earth Science, we investigated the Montessori lesson of the "Unconscious Exchange of Services". In this lesson, we learned that all things, both living and not, are unconsciously connected to other things around them. Such connections can be both positive or negative.
Unconscious Exchange of Services Visual
Students filled in a matrix to identify such connections.
We also watched a Brainpop Video (username and password: cema) on symbiosis, and used our Classroom Responders to answer questions to test our comprehension of the video.
Can you name an example of an unconscious exchange of service? The first three replies in the "comments" section of this blog entry will receive a prize!
