For this h.w. you will cut out and paste images onto your notebook in order to represent a food web and also include a brief explanation of the trophic level present. Identify by labeling the following words in your food web.
Each group will have a class presentation explaining the assigned concepts and illustrating these with a habitat/ecosystem illustration which will be used by the group to explain the relationships and inter dependence present.
Group 1: Biodiversity, ecosystem, environment, keystone species
Group 2: Biomes, ecosystems, communities, population, individuals
Group 3: Food webs, types of producers, types of consumers,
Group 4: Aquatic and Terrestrial biomes, Abiotic and biotic factors.
Group 5: Types of niche, species that affect niches, edge effect on populations.
For this month’s LOG, group 1 will research marine biodiversity within the Dominican Republic.
