Land food webs multimedia activity
This multimedia activity was conceived as a complementary class activity for the lesson plan provided in the OCE guidebook The climate in our hands - Climate Change and Land.
Through this activity, the students can learn the names and predatory relationships of multiple animal and plant species belonging to six different land food webs, and living in distinct world regions: riparian ecosytems in Alaska, temperate forests, guyanese tropical forests, savannah, soil and one example of an agrosystem. Students can also visualise the impact of climate change and human activities on those food webs.
The food webs proposed are not all of the same complexity: it is up to you to choose the most adapted to your students, taking into account their knowledge and skills, and also their local context!
