The Dirt on Decomposers: Crash Course Kids #7.2

The Dirt on Decomposers: Crash Course Kids #7.2

We’ve talked about food chains and how energy moves through an ecosystem, but let’s take a step back and see how everything starts… and ends. Decomposers!

This first series is based on 5th grade science. We’re super excited and hope you enjoy Crash Course Kids!

///Standards Used in This Video///
5-LS2-1. Develop a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment. [Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on the idea that matter that is not food (air, water, decomposed materials in soil) is changed by plants into matter that is food. Examples of systems could include organisms, ecosystems, and the Earth.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include molecular explanations.]
