Animals get energy from the food they eat, and all living things get energy from food.

Biology Archives - Science Sparks Playing Detective – add some science to role play This post is all about adding a bit of science sparkle to role play, the activities should hopefully add a simulating and educational twist to an already fun game.

Decomposition Column The U.S. generates 190 million tons of solid waste a year — enough to fill a bumper-to-bumper convoy of garbage trucks halfway to the moon. So why aren't we up to our necks in garbage? Nature recycles garbage all the time, and this recycling is essential to the availability of nutrients for living things. Nature's recyclers are tiny bacteria and fungi, which break down plant and animal waste, making nutrients available for other living things in the process. This is known as decomposition. Decomposition involves a whole community of large and small organisms that serve as food for each other, clean up each other's debris, control each other's populations and convert materials to forms that others can use.

TerrAqua Column - What is the Land-Water Connection? What common substance falls from the atmosphere, flows through our bodies, runs through the soil beneath our feet, collects in puddles and lakes, then vaporizes back into the atmosphere in a never-ending cycle? Water, as it cycles between land, ocean and atmosphere, forms the major link between the terrestrial world (involving anything living on the earth) and the aquatic world (involving anything living on or in the water). Water drips off rooftops, flows over roads, off your toothbrush, and down the drain, percolates through the soils of fields and forests and eventually finds its way into rivers, lakes and oceans.
