The type of food an organism consumes helps to define roles within an ecosystem. One path of consumption can be explained using a food chain. Students will create a model of a food chain that includes organisms found in Tennessee and describe the movement of energy throughout.

Written in collaboration with Jessica Holloway, a Tennessee educator, as part of our e-STEM for Tennessee’s Teachers program.
