ECOADVENTURES IN BIOMES
Welcome to A.L.P.H.A. which is NISD's elementary program for gifted and talented students. A.L.P.H.A. stands for Advance Learning Program for High Achievers. In this year's advance studies in Earth Science we will be going on "eco-adventures" as we study the earth's biomes. The big idea is to study INTERACTIONS in nature. All year we will be looking at the essential questions:
1.) In what ways are living organisms and their environments interdependent?
2. In what ways are environments affected by change over time?
3. What consequences are there for failing to adapt to environmental changes?
We will be endeavoring to nurture a love for nature through the collection of insects and plant life, planting gardens, research, visits to our classroom by special speakers and a collaboration of Nature Through Art with the McNay Museum.
