Dynamics of Ecosystems
A set of guided notes walks your biology or environmental studies learners through the dynamics of ecosystems. They write short answers to questions about the energy budget, food webs, trophic levels, and biogeochemical cycles. One way you could employ this worksheet is to have your class answer the questions as you lecture on these concepts.

Weaving a Tangled Web
Here is a practical activity for reinforcing understanding of energy flow in ecosystems. Learners identify whether each organism in a list is a producer or decomposer. They tell if each is an herbivore, carnivore, omnivore, or detritivore. Then they construct a food web using those organisms.
