Food chain-intro

  1. 2. Meal Food Web <ul><li>This activity is to see how we, as humans, still fit into our natural food web </li></ul><ul><li>Start by coming up with your fantasy daily meal plan (FDMP) </li></ul><ul><li>Your FDMP must include a breakfast, a lunch and a dinner. You may include one snack </li></ul>
  2. 3. Instructions <ul><li>Each meal must include an “Entrée”, at least 2 sides (may be more if you want), a drink (can use water for only one of the meals), desserts are optional, but separate than the 2 sides. </li></ul><ul><li>Write them down in your notes, doesn ’t have to be a new piece of paper </li></ul>
  3. 4. The Table <ul><li>On a clean sheet of paper, put your name & hour at the upper right </li></ul><ul><li>Put a title at the top “Meal Food Web” </li></ul><ul><li>Create a 5 column table </li></ul><ul><li>You need to have space for all of your food </li></ul>
  4. 5. Your Table Might Look Like This Your Meals Parts of your Meals Ingredients Organisms that create those ingredients What those animals eat
  5. 6. The Web <ul><li>On the back of your table, list out all of the plants from the column “organisms that make those ingredients” and “what those animals eat” </li></ul><ul><li>Spread them out! Don ’t group them or list them </li></ul><ul><li>List out all of the animals that are in the column “organisms that make those ingredients” Be sure to include YOU… again, spread them out! </li></ul>
  6. 7. The Web <ul><li>Draw arrows to show “what eats what” </li></ul><ul><li>Add in arrows to show “potential” food sources for animals </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Example: Your table may say that a cow eats hay, oats and corn, but in your web there is also grass…you should add an arrow from the grass to the cow </li></ul></ul>
  7. 8. The Contenders <ul><li>You will now add in some competition in your food web </li></ul><ul><li>Think of 5 animals that will compete with YOU for your food </li></ul><ul><li>Your food is anything that is in your web right now. </li></ul><ul><li>Add those animals in, CIRCLE them then connect them in with arrows as many times as possible. </li></ul>
  8. 9. Conclusion <ul><li>What is the ultimate source of energy for your food web? </li></ul><ul><li>If all of the corn or any other one of your producers disappeared, how would that affect your web? </li></ul><ul><li>Separate your web into: Producers, 1 st level Consumers, 2 nd level Consumers, 3 rd level Consumers </li></ul>
  9. 10. Conclusion (con ’ tinued) <ul><li>What levels would be considered: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Herbivores </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Omnivores </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Carnivores </li></ul></ul><ul><li>What is a detritivore? Put three in on your web, put a square around each of them and link them each with at least 3 things. </li></ul><ul><li>What level has the most organisms in it, in most food webs? </li></ul>
