What happens when a necessary species disappears from the food web? In this 45 minute class, we will be learning how food webs work, and why every species is necessary for ecosystems to balance and thrive (no matter how small!). We will discuss how each species' dietary requirements and environmental role affect food chains, whether they are an herbivore or carnivore, or where they land on the trophic energy pyramid. Understanding the differences in diets and environmental roles is essential...
Students will gain an understanding of food webs, the importance of them being balanced for a healthy ecosystem, and what happens when a key species disappears. They will also learn the differences in animal diets and trophic energy levels, and their necessity to food webs. The information given in this course will allow students to identify food webs in their own environment and what might happen if certain species vanish.
I will be supplying slides for the game we play, nothing is needed on the students end!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
