In this module, students use the concepts of food webs and trophic levels to explore populations of marine organisms. Students research an organism in a marine habitat, then the whole class combines their data in a jigsaw activity to produce a food web diagram for that habitat. Next, students collect biomass data during “virtual dives” which they use to determine the relationship between biomass and trophic levels.
The following are all the resources for implementing this module:
The VES-V is visually driven in nature and supported by the third-party "perspectx.com". Color contrast, assistive technology support, and alternate text may be unsupported.
The following activities within the Ocean Food Webs Module may be completed without the use of VES-V software. As some of these were originally designed to be used with it, they will require some adaptation by the educator to make them accessible for students with disabilities.
