Energy Transfer and Trophic Levels

This is a ten minute video presentation with interactive quizzes and a group porject at the end. The entire lesson, including the project will take one to two class periods. Can easily be adapted to go for deeper learning. Math can also be integrated into this lesson.

Students will work in teams to create a food web associated with Michigan Wildlife (or another
specific ecosystem) and a corresponding trophic level energy pyramid. The pyramid will need to
include mathematical percentages representing the biomass.
