Title: The Rainforest Food Web

The Rainforest Food Web
  • We will be studying food webs by researching and
    building our own Rainforest Food Web.
  • We will work as a class to create and present two
    PowerPoint presentations based on our research.

Step 1- Groups
  • Break up into assigned groups.
  • Each group will have four students.
  • Each layer of the rainforest will be studied by
    two groups
  • Forest Floor
  • Understory
  • Canopy
  • Emergent Layer

Step 2 - Research Layer
  • Research your layer of the rainforest using the
    internet, textbook, or library and cite your
  • Individually, take notes about the attributes of
    your layer. What is unique about it? How is it
  • Meet as a group to compare notes and decide which
    are the most important or interesting. Choose no
    more than 8 facts.

Step 3 - Research Organism
  • Each group member will choose an organism found
    in your layer to investigate.
  • There must be at least one plant, animal, and
    insect included in each group, so organize within
    your group.
  • Submit choice to teacher for approval (so there
    are no duplicates.)
  • Take notes on your organism. What is it? What
    role does is play producer, consumer,
    decomposer? What does it eat? What eats it?
    How does it affect other organisms? Where does
    it find shelter? Any other interesting facts?

Step 4 - PowerPoint
  • Using your notes, create a PowerPoint
    presentation on your layer of the rainforest.
  • As a group, design at least two slides to
    introduce the layer.
  • slide one - introduction
  • slide two - interesting facts

Step 4 - PowerPoint cont.
  • Each individual is responsible for creating three
    slides on their chosen organism.

Slide one - introduction with a picture Slide
two - interesting facts Slide three - food web
Step 4 - PowerPoint cont.
  • Food Web Connection Slide
  • Include at least two food sources, unless your
    organism eats only one thing.
  • Include at least two or three predators, or
    effects on other organisms.

Spider Monkey Connections
Step 5 - Reflection
  • Once the group PowerPoints are complete, they
    will be compiled into two separate slide shows
    for class presentations.
  • After viewing the class slideshow presentations
    and participating in discussion, write a one page
    reflection on what you learned about rainforests
    and what can be done to preserve them.

PowerPoint Tips
  • Use Pictures when appropriate.
  • Limit words when possible.
  • You may use colors, sounds, and animations.
  • Focus on the content. Flash does not make up
    for trash.
