Add Stub # – Karan – Energy Flow in the Garden Ecosystem
Click on numbers above to see all images/videos associated with this lesson plan.
4th grade students will learn about the flow of energy and matter in a
garden ecosystem by playing the roles of producers, consumers and decomposers in a simulation activity; observing components of the soil food web in the garden; forensically dissecting an owl pellet to re-create a food web and an ecological pyramid from which energy flow can be calculated; and restoring balance to a garden ecosystem by removing non-native species or introducing beneficial predators to control pests.
