Living in harmony with nature
Ecology is the relationship between living and non-living things in their total environment. If you were to observe a person who is working in the garden watering plants, tilling the soil and stopping for a break to take a drink of water, you would be witness to an ecological relationship. Frequently, stories in the newspaper report on the abuse of ecology. Monitor the articles in the St. Petersburg Times for a week to find articles focused on positive and negative ecological relationships. Using these articles as a basis for research, write a well-developed essay about your observations of useful or abusive ecological relationships locally as well as internationally. Include observations you have made regarding ecological relationships you have seen at home and at school. Share what you have learned here on the NIE Blogging Zone.
