Unit 1 Matter and Energy in Organisms and Ecosystems Through a study of Hydroponics
Plants acquire their material for growth chiefly from air and water.
The food of almost any kind of animal can be traced back to plants. Organisms are related in food webs in which some animals eat plants for food and other animals eat the animals that eat plants. Some organisms, such as fungi and bacteria, break down dead organisms (both plants or plants parts and animals) and therefore operate as “decomposers.” Decomposition eventually restores (recycles) some materials back to the soil. Organisms can survive only in environments in which their particular needs are met. A healthy ecosystem is one in which multiple species of different types are each able to meet their needs in a relatively stable web of life. Newly introduced species can damage the balance of an ecosystem.
Matter cycles between the air and soil and among plants, animals, and microbes as these organisms live and die. Organisms obtain gases, and water, from the environment, and release waste matter (gas, liquid, or solid) back into the environment.
The energy released [from] food was once energy from the sun that way captured by plants in the chemical process that forms plant matter (from air and water).
Food provides animals with the materials they need for body repair and growth and the energy they need to maintain body warmth and for motion. (secondary)

We memorize poems several times during the year.
