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.


3–5, 6–8, 9–12

Activity Type

  • Computer Lab Activities

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!



Learning Objective


While participating in the Build a Food Web activity, students interact with a food web and gain an understanding of animal eating habits.
