Virtual Lab Instructions:

  • At this point, you are ready to begin the lab exercise. You will need to first print the “Model Ecosystems Worksheet”, which can be found in Mr. rant’s WikiSpaces page. Click on the “Field Guide” on the lower portion of the activity area and read through the information presented. When you are ready, please begin by selecting the ecosystem type that you would like to model from the pull down menu in the laboratory area. Then click and drag the various organisms to their correct locations on the pyramid (note: you must place them in just the right area of the pyramid or else they will bounce back or replace another organism…this does not mean that they do not belong there, just try again in a different area of the pyramid). Remember to follow the directions given to you in the “Question” as well as in the “Model Ecosystems Worksheet” areas, and refer back to the notes in the “Field Guide” area if necessary.

    5.Complete the exercise as directed, recording any data or information needed in your “Data Table” and/or “Lab Report”.

    6.When you are finished, please answer all of the questions found at the end of the “Model Ecosystems Worksheet” and take the QuizStar Modeling Ecosystems Post-Lab Quiz.
