- Students will explore a model to understand how matter and energy are transferred among producers, consumers, and decomposers in an ecosystem.
- Students will explore how the number of organisms in different trophic levels affects the stability of an ecosystem.
- secondary consumer
- tertiary consumer
- trophic level
About the Lesson
In this lesson, students will use a simulation to explore the transfer of matter and energy among producers, consumers, and decomposers in an ecosystem.
As a result, students will:
- Describe how energy is transferred through an ecosystem.
- Explain how organisms depend on one another to create a balanced ecosystem.
