Description

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.

I am so impressed with this unit which manages to be distance learning and hands-on at the same time.  Really well thought out and engaging activities that allow students to practice each of the eight Science and Engineering Practices.  Really no prep for me!

The elephant article was excellent but I also thought the lab on dissecting a flower was broken down so easily, even telling me where to get inexpensive flowers!  This resource helped me teach this challenging standard in an engaging way.  Worth every penny!

My students loved this unit. I was able to present different elements of it throughout the month. It is hard to find interesting non-fictional, age-appropriate text for my students that they will enjoy. This was a great unit that aligned well for my students who have very different goals within the same group.
