Are your students struggling to interpret diagrams of content they understand? Students are often asked to create and analyze models to demonstrate their understanding but the skills of modeling is often taken for granted in our teaching. How can you teach modeling skills and content at the same time in a meaningful way? This card sort style activity models the introduction of a new species with special attention to the effect on existing predators and producers. Students model the flow of energy and matter in an ecosystem while evaluating their models and examining its limits. Participants will receive a set of materials to try in their classrooms.
