A visit to the Curtis Bay Elementary School with anticipated future gardeners was what this cold winter blast needed.  Curtis Bay Elementary School Students started they spring garden this week planting flowers in their recycled milk cartons.  It's amazing what you can use milk cartons for, with the help of Ms. Edith this project was a success.

Curtis Bay Elementary School discovers team work can accomplish anything. 
 
Plants and Animals must work in a closed ecosystem-is our work a closed ecosystem. Is our world a closed ecosystem? Yes! The Eco-system terrarium has been place in each classroom.  We can now experience first hand of the changes made in the eco-system thanks to Mrs. Rodette, Ms. Edith (Filbert Street Garden ) and our teachers.

Building an ecosystem terrarium entails placing a variety of living and nonliving things into a partially closed environment and letting them interact naturally.  The communities within the terrarium are classified as the ecosystem.  Most kept terrariums begin with a source of water and build a habitat of plants, fish or small animals around water.  The children at Curtis Bay Elementary School had hands on experience in building their very own ECOSYSTEM.  We experience the opportunity for our plants and animals working together to explore a closed ecosystem.
