PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Energy Pyramid Model for Ecosystems

Learn about food chains, food webs, and energy transfer through an ecosystem with this engaging hands-on ecology activity.

What students will do:
* Identify the various types of organisms including herbivore, carnivore, and omnivore
* Calculate the amount of energy transferred from organism to organism within an ecosystem of their choosing, and the various trophic levels of the energy pyramid.
* Create a stackable food chain to present in class using the accompanying template.

A teacher example is provided and can aid as a warm-up activity to familiarize students with the project and can also be used as a visual example of the project to help students make their own. This project can also be found in our Food Chains & Food Webs mini-bundle.
