Our Energy Pyramid lesson plan teaches students all about the energy pyramid, including the four levels of the pyramid and how they relate to each other. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity to create a poster about a specific ecosystem, showing the food chain and energy movement on an energy pyramid. Students are also asked to match terms with their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify and describe the energy pyramid and define and explain the four levels of the pyramid.
