Students will make a model by building food webs and food chains to show the flow of energy within an ecosystem! Great for learning about energy flow in ecosystems, food webs, and food chains. Students will love sorting these 72 cards and will love the food web worksheets. See more about how energy flows in an ecosystem. SEE a demonstration of this Food Web Unit here.
This resource includes a slideshow on how energy moves through an ecosystem, specifically within a food web. It also includes lesson plans, vocabulary puzzle activities, and Food Web worksheets (with answer keys).
Students will learn that energy flows through an ecosystem and that we can make a model of this transfer of energy by creating food chains and food webs.
The task cards include six tasks
Sorting Type of Organism
Sorting Trophic Level
Sorting herbivores, carnivores, omnivores
Building a model of energy flow in a Food Web
Building a model of energy flow in a Food Chain
Making a Food Web and Labeling the Parts
Reference Notes are provided so students can research what each organism eats.
This resource also includes a two-page assessment in a multiple-choice format quiz.
This ecosystem resource is great for practicing the concept of energy flow in an ecosystem, food webs, and food chains. Students will see the interconnectedness and relationships between organisms within a food web. The ecosystem worksheets are also helpful.
Great for 5th grade NGSS and Middle School Science on Food Chains.
