6th Grade Ecology Unit

2020 comic

The sixth grade, as part of their Ecology Unit, have been looking at species interactions. They learned about:

  • Mutualism, where both species benefit
  • Commensalism, where one benefits and the other gets nothing
  • Neutralism, where neither species affects one another
  • Ammensalism, where one is harmed and the other gets nothing
  • Parasitism, where one species is harmed and the other benefits
  • Competition, where both species lose out


In order to fully understand, they had to portray these different relationships with a few partners by choosing a real example of that relationship found in nature. They then took pictures of the portrayal and then made a comic strip with them. They used their laptops to create these impressive comics! Come check out more of them in the science lab!
