Interactions between organisms

Today we started our unit on Ecology by looking at the relationships between organisms. Students worked in pairs or groups of three to come up with a list of living things in a particular area.  Next they needed to illustrate the relationships between these organisms.  From there students learned about food webs and chains.

This led to our essential question for the next few days which is:  How is energy conserved in an ecosystem?

Tonight for homework please read section 3.1 and finish your food web from class.
