Food Chain and Metamorphosis

Our ponds/Rivers Studies naturally got the student’s curious about food chains and life cycles. SO we dove in to learn more about the trophic cascade!

PK and YK have been sorting creatures into herbivore, omnivore, carnivore in hunting games outside, on paper and more. They are now familiar with decomposers  and a multi-leveled food chain.

MK and OK got a close up look at autotrophs (plants) and primary, secondary and tertiary consumers such as ourselves.  We have investigated the Wolves of Yellowstone and what they call a trophic cascade!
