Energy Pyramid Poster


Create your own Energy Pyramid!

As students discuss energy needs of living things, they realize that all organisms in an environment interact with each other either directly or indirectly through a network of food chains known as a food web. Students review the roles of producers, consumers and decomposers and the order of energy flow within an ecosystem. Further exploration of various order consumers and classification as herbivore, carnivore or omnivore demonstrates the diversity of living things. Such knowledge prepares students for analysis of ecosystems and determination of existing food webs in a given area.

Grade Level: 3-5
