Students will begin by identifying the difference between living and nonliving things. Next, they will explore food chains and food webs, focusing on the interdependence among species in an ecosystem. Finally, students will understand how producers, consumers, and decomposers work together to keep the energy flowing within an ecosystem.
They will apply all they know about living things, food chains, food webs, and energy in a final assessment.
