Marine Food Chains

 

Region: Southeast
Level: Grade 3 - 5, Grade 6 - 8
Program type: Field Trip;

Description: The ocean is a busy place. Organisms of all sizes are eating and being eaten, thus transferring life-giving energy among all levels of the food pyramid. this program highlights marine food chains and webs, with special attention places on whales. Baleen, teeth, and other natural artifacts are used to help demonstrate how whales get their food.
Learning standards will be met as students: explain their roles within food webs; create simple food chains for two of the Museum's whale skeletons - the North Atlantic right whale and the sperm whale; link trophic levels by creating a marine food web; use computer-based interactive lessons to examine the roles of producers, consumers and decomposers.

Topics: Animals, Marine Science, Oceans
