Trophic Level Lab

Unit 1: Unit 1- Organization and Relationships
Lesson 19 of 23

Objective: Students will be able to construct an energy pyramid using trophic levels and explain the flow of energy and its components. Students will be able to describe the effect competition, density-dependent factors and density independent factors have on an ecosystem.

Big Idea: Students get to run around and have fun pretending to be rabbits; snakes, hawks and grass, while learning firsthand how environmental factors have a great effect on an organism's ability to survive.
