Name: Date: School: Facilitator: 1.04 Energy Pyramid Lab Directions: Visit Virtual Lab: Model Ecosystems to complete the Energy Pyramid Lab and then answer the lab analysis questions below. Before beginning the lab, read the introduction information on the left side of the lab screen under the question, “How does energy flow through an ecosystem?” After carefully reading the introduction, begin completing the lab according to the following procedures: 1. Look at the ecosystem selection box just above the Pyramid. It should have a default setting on “Deciduous Forest Ecosystem.” 2. Look at the “Field Notes” column on the right hand side of the page. There are plants and animals listed in the section. Click on the animal or plant and drag it to the appropriate place in the Energy Pyramid. (Only a certain number of organisms will fit in each trophic level. After you have put all the organisms in the appropriate level, click check button at the bottom of the pyramid to see if you placed them appropriately. If the organism is not placed appropriately, it will be moved back to the right. **The “Field Guide” tab and the bottom allow you to read information on each of the ecosystems. This may help in getting the organisms in the correct trophic level.
