TEKS 7.5C and 7.10B (8th grade supporting TEKS) Texas
This activity was created to support 7th grade TEKS that may be tested on STAAR. Students will create a food chain and web using the terrestrial and aquatic animals on the cards. Students will also classify each of the cards as either Biotic or Abiotic. Webs may be used to reinforce predator-prey relationships, parasite-host, and levels of an energy pyramid. Students are asked to make a correlation between biodiversity and sustainability in an ecosystem.
