This is a hands-on activity that allows students to practice how energy flows in an ecosystem. Students will cut out organisms and place them in an ecosystem. If you are interested, there is a PowerPoint that uses the same characters when introducing students to Ecology. It also includes notes and a teacher's key. Please see my store to purchase.
On this Activity What will students be doing?: Students will set up their food webs using the organisms provided. Students only have to place them correctly in the environment and draw in arrows where energy flows in an ecosystem. After students have set up their food web they will answer a few questions about their organisms and their environment.
Recommendation: I recommend the teacher cutting out the organisms first and seeing how the words fall on the back. Then the teacher can give students hints on how to cut out the organisms. Any problems, please feel free to email with me.
