During this hands-on experience, learners will explore how organisms interact and ultimately obtain energy from the sun. After reviewing the roles of producers, consumers, and decomposers, students will create a life-sized food web to illustrate energy flow through an ecosystem. Then, we will visit the Madagascar and Costa Rica glasshouses – and weather permitting the outdoor gardens – to observe food webs in action.
