6. Food Webs - Assessments


  1. Consider the food web you are a part of. Draw as much of that food web as possible.
  2. Make a list of 3 ways that food chains are similar to food webs. Make another list of 3 ways that food chains are different from food webs.

Going Further

  1. As I mentioned, it is very useful to take the field guide produced by the students on a field trip with you. On that field trip, students can be responsible for tracking the number of different organisms that were observed.
  2. Conduct a detailed class investigation of a specific endangered or threatened species and the reasons behind the problem. See the Fighting for Foxes lesson or try the Plight of the Salmon activity available in Monitoring Creek Health.
