Build a Food Web: An Endangered Ecosystems Activity
This fun interactive activity challenges students to match common predators of a Mexican ecosystem with their prey.
- Grades: 3–5, 6–8, 9–12
Part of Scholastic’s Mexican Wild Cats project, the “Build a Food Web” online activity (grades 4–8) challenges students to figure out who are the predators and who are their prey by matching them up. Along the way, they learn how plants, insects, and animals are all connected in the ecosystem.
At the end, they can print a Food Web Certificate of Achievement!
While participating in the “Build a Food Web” activity, students interact with a food web and gain an understanding of animal eating habits.
