Energy Flow in Ecosystems: Course Overview

In this Life Science course, you will learn about the flow of energy through all life forms on Planet Earth.

                * You will learn how light energy from our Sun is captured in the cells of green plants.

                * You will identify the plant parts where light energy converts to chemical food energy.

                * You will collect and classify examples of energy food producing plants.

                * In a field study, you will film animals consuming the chemical energy of plants.

                * Within a chosen biome, you will construct a model web of energy flow throughout the life forms.
