This lesson teaches students all about food webs. The concept behind food webs and techniques for using them are both included in the lesson. Students are first asked to decide which organisms in a food web are producers, consumers, carnivores, herbivores, etc. Students then practice pulling food chains out of food webs, and using food webs to make predictions of ecological consequences of changing populations. Students next draw in the arrows to complete a food web using a chart stating trophic relationships. Lastly, students make a food web poster using organism cards. I include a rubric for the poster in this lesson. Most students need a second day to complete the poster.
Zip file contains: 1.Powerpoint 2.PDF, to guarantee formatting and for easy printing, 3.Word document, to make it easier to edit, 4. PDF of food web cards, which I give to my students to make a food web poster
Document is a conglomeration of my original material and material from other sources. Food webs that I use in the lesson are ones I have taken as is or altered from images obtained from google image. The PDF of the food web cards is not mine. Someone else made it and it is obtainable for free elsewhere online. Due to the size of that file, I was not able to include it in my free preview file, but here is a link with which you can obtain them for free:
