Food Web Marble Maze Challenge!
The assigned STEM group must first choose a biome or type of ecosystem. (ex: Tundra, Grassland, Forest) Using the materials below, students must create a marble run that features different levels of the food web. They must include a producer, a primary consumer, secondary consumer, and a tertiary consumer. There can be more than one of each type of consumer, but there must be at least one of every level. The marble maze must direct the ball going up the various interlocking paths along the food web. Animals and consumer types must be labeled in their design. Drawings, computer clipart, or figurines can be used. More directions are found in this resource!
