Enduring Knowledge: Energy enters an ecosystem in the form of sunlight and flows through the system to each cell. Matter interacts, changes and recycles in an ecosystem. Populations of organisms survive by maintaining interdependent relationships with one another and by utilizing biotic and abiotic resources from the environment.
S5-6:34. Students demonstrate their understanding of Energy Flow in an Ecosystem by:
S5-6:34.1. Developing a model that shows how the flow of energy from the sun is transferred to organisms as food in order to sustain life. (DOK 3)
S5-6:35. Students demonstrate their understanding of Food Webs in an Ecosystem by:
S5-6:35.1. Developing a model for a food web of a local aquatic and local terrestrial environment. (DOK 2)
