About the Lesson
In this lesson, students will use a simulation to construct a model that describes the cycling of matter and flow of energy in an ecosystem.
As a result, students will…
- Construct a foodweb to describe the flow of energy through an aquatic ecosystem.
- Identify and describe the relationships among organisms that allow for the transfer of energy in an ecosystem.
