Learning Objective

Students will make a model of food webs and complete food web worksheets to demonstrate their understanding of the flow of energy in a food web.

Description

Students will make a model by building food webs and food chains to show the flow of energy within an ecosystem! Great for learning about energy flow in ecosystems, food webs, and food chains. Students will love sorting these 72 cards and will love the food web worksheets. See more about how energy flows in an ecosystem.

This resource includes

  • Slideshow on how energy moves through an ecosystem
  • Lesson plans
  • Vocabulary puzzle activities
  • Food Web worksheets
  • Answer keys
  • Sorting Cards
  • Task Cards
  • Assessment

Students will learn that energy flows through an ecosystem and that we can make a model of this transfer of energy by creating food chains and food webs.

The task cards include six tasks

Sorting Type of Organism

Sorting Trophic Level

Sorting herbivores, carnivores, omnivores

Building a model of energy flow in a Food Web

Building a model of energy flow in a Food Chain

Making a Food Web and Labeling the Parts

Reference Notes are provided so students can research what each organism eats.  

This resource also includes a two-page assessment in a multiple-choice format quiz.

This ecosystem resource is great for practicing the concept of energy flow in an ecosystem, food webs, and food chains. Students will see the interconnectedness and relationships between organisms within a food web. The ecosystem worksheets are also helpful.

The following NGSS standards are addressed:


NGSS 5-LS2-1 Develop a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment.

NGSS 5-PS3-1 Use models to describe that energy in animals’ food (used for body repair, growth, and motion and to maintain body warmth) was once energy from the sun.


NGSS MS LS2-3 Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem.

5.3.2 Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information that animals obtain energy and matter from the food they eat for body repair, growth, and motion and to maintain body warmth.

5.3.3 Develop and use a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment. Emphasize that matter cycles between the air and soil and among plants, animals, and microbes as these organisms live and die

and

Utah SEEd 6.4.3 Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem.  Emphasize food webs and the role of producers, consumers, and decomposers in various ecosystems.

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
NGSS5-LS2-1
Develop a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment. Emphasis is on the idea that matter that is not food (air, water, decomposed materials in soil) is changed by plants into matter that is food. Examples of systems could include organisms, ecosystems, and the Earth. Assessment does not include molecular explanations.
NGSSMS-LS2-3
Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem. Emphasis is on describing the conservation of matter and flow of energy into and out of various ecosystems, and on defining the boundaries of the system. Assessment does not include the use of chemical reactions to describe the processes.
NGSSMS-LS2-2
Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems. Emphasis is on predicting consistent patterns of interactions in different ecosystems in terms of the relationships among and between organisms and abiotic components of ecosystems. Examples of types of interactions could include competitive, predatory, and mutually beneficial.
