This interactive activity is great for teaching food chains and trophic levels. In this activity, students will be playing the roles of a coyote, rabbit, or grass in an ecological community. They will learn why it is important to have the greatest number of producers and the fewest number of secondary consumers. Students will love this activity because they will be up out of their seats and competing with their peers. Teachers will love this activity because it emphasizes not only trophic levels, but also graphing skills and cooperative learning. Included in your purchase is the teacher directions, student worksheets, answer key, and powerpoint or SMART notebook files to accompany the lesson.
