level are:

A.Elephants and lions


B.Cheetahs and giraffes
C.Chipmunks and squirrels
D.Wolves and sparrows
Standard S7L4

Students will examine (study;


look at) the dependence
(reliance) of organisms (any
living thing) on one another and
their environments
(surroundings; locations).
ESSENTIAL QUESTION

How does energy


decrease as it moves
through an ecosystem?
Energy Pyramid

Energy pyramid: A model


used to show the amount of
energy available to living
things in an ecosystem.
Label the pyramid with the four (4) trophic levels
