What's for Dinner?

In this activity (page 5 of the PDF), learners will create a food web and explore food sources for different organisms. They will identify relationships between organisms in an ecosystem. Though this activity was created as a pre-visit for a traveling science show, it makes a great stand-alone activity as well!
