What concepts are covered?
- Producers and consumers: Students will define terms and provide examples of producers, herbivores, carnivores, omnivores and decomposers.
- Students will complete a "cut and paste" activity where they sort 15 organisms into the following categories: producers, herbivores, carnivores, omnivores and decomposers.
- Food Chains: Given a diagram of a food chain, students will answer a series of critical thinking and problem solving questions. Students will identify the producer, the primary consumer, the secondary consumer, the tertiary consumer and the quaternary consumer.
- The importance of decomposers in the food chain.
- Students will sort 24 organisms into 6 different food chains: Ocean, woodland, salt marsh, arctic, desert, and freshwater pond. Students must place the organism in the correct food chain and in the correct order.
- Food Webs: Students will use a diagram of a food web to answer a series of questions.
- The difference between food chains and food webs.
- Detritivores and decomposers.
- Autotrophs and heterotrophs.
- Students will design a complex food web by cutting and pasting 15 different organisms into a freshwater pond ecosystem. The student will connect the organisms by drawing arrows between them.
- Energy Flow Through the Ecosystem: Students will read a short passage and answer higher level thinking questions.
- Students will use a diagram of an energy pyramid and answer a series of questions.
- Trophic levels, energy transfer, energy loss.
- Students will calculate how many Calories of energy are passed to each trophic level.
- Students will draw and design a food pyramid of their choice.
This is a NO PREP activity. Everything you need is included. You only have to duplicate the pages and pass them out to your students.
