Reflect & Synthesize: Answer the following questions in your blog post. Remember to have at least one follow-up sentence for each question, when possible.
Choose one of your Food Chains that you created and explain how it works.
Can a Food Web be considered a "system"? Why or why not?
What happens if a plant or animal all of a sudden disappears from the food web?
Using this food chain, "sunlight to apple to worm to bird to cat," How do organisms in this food chain get the matter they need for body repair and growth?
Using the same food chain in #4, How do organisms in that food chain get the energy they need for body warmth and motion?
What do you think happens to the matter that is NOT used by the organisms in a food chain or food web? Is it wasted or does something else happen?
I made an ocean ecosystem. It works by an animal eating another animal.
I made an ocean ecosystem that starts at Phytoplankton and zooplankton. then it moves up to actual fish which are a small fish a larger fish and then a shark.
If 1 If one animal goes missing it will mess up the entire Food chain.That means that if one animal goes missing it will offset the balance. In a food chain if 1 animal goes missing that means one animal will go hungry and another animal will go hungry because it disappeared which keeps going on until the food chain end.
What happens is the sunlight is creating photosynthesis for the plant or Apple. The worm will eat the apple. The bird will eat the worm and then the cat will eat the bird and slowly the calories will decrease by a certain amount that's why some animals have to eat more and that's why is you keep moving up the food chain and there's less and less of them.
In the food chain the animals got there heat and energy through eating the matter. The reason they're getting the matter is because they are eating more matter which is giving them more matter.
The matter not used will be decomposed by decomposers. Some of those decomposers are mushrooms are fungi. the matter will not disappear though because matter can never disappear only change form.
