Disciplinary Core Idea
LS2:  Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics 

Illustrating the dynamics of trophic levels in an ecosystem provides us with insight into how matter and energy is not lost or destroyed, but used or transferred, in these exchanges. In this activity, students will explore the food chains & webs around their home and neighborhood in order to illustrate and interpret the trophic level dynamics happening all around them.

Interdisciplinary with Math. 

This lesson was originally written for Biology 1. With modification, it could apply to Ecology and Environmental Science Standards.
