Carolina EcoKits®: Food Chains and Energy Flow (with prepaid coupon)

Item # 187104 Exclusive

Grades 9–12. Students examine microorganisms and create a food chain based on observed feeding patterns. Students explore energy transfer through different trophic levels of a food chain using a simulation activity. Using their finding that all energy is not transferred, students calculate the energy flow through the food chain they created. Carefully plan the arrival of the cultures; Didinium will die if not used within 1 day of receipt. Kit accommodates 30 students working in pairs.
