Biosphere
------------
This week your students will enter Biosphere III,  a fun and exciting simulation of 
Biosphere II in Oracle, Arizona.  Biosphere II is an enclosed environment replicating the 
Earth ecosystem that supports life.  NASA and the US Government developed it as a test 
to see if life could survive on other planets.  Room 11C will be conducting Biosphere III.  
The room will be split into an agricultural center and 4 biomes:  desert, rain forest, ocean, 
and savannah.  The students will be assigned to a crew and will be immersed into scientific 
inquiry/research via experiments and activities.   The students will enter Biosphere III on 
May 26th and their mission will be complete on May 29th.  Their work shift will be from 
8:15am-2:50pm, so they will report to room 11C each day.

Have a FABULOUS week!
