        Energy Flow in the Garden Ecosystem | Project Learning Garden

        Students will learn about the flow of energy and matter in a garden ecosystem by playing the roles of producers, consumers, and decomposers in a simulation activity; observing components of the soil food web in the garden; forensically dissecting an owl pellet to re-create a food web and an ecological pyramid from which energy flow can be calculated; and restoring balance to a garden ecosystem by removing non-native species or introducing beneficial predators to control pests. These concepts are explained with this learning resource from Captain Planet's Learning Gardens Program.
