Happy Block DayNew spot in notebook: Ecosystem Energy PyramidNumber 1 -5.Youre sick Jerry! Sick, sick, sick!
Learning Target: With my team, we will explain why the ecosystem pyramid HAS to be shaped like a pyramid.Now stay calm...Lets hear what they said to Bill.
Which energy type(s) are shown in the following pictures?
Which Type of Energy? 1)Mechanical
Which Type of Energy? 2) The glacier is warming up.It is turning to water.
Which Type of Energy? 3) A nice TVWhat is powering the TV?
Which Type of Energy? 4)Use this SOLAR CELL to power your home.Use the power of the sun.
Which Type of Energy? 10)
Announcements:Science Boards due a week from Friday!Science fair 2/28After school until 2/22 lab open for science fair work AND support.ASAP can also help.Supplies and computers!
On two pages of your notebook:Definitions for the diagramEcosystem Energy Pyramid Diagram
Definitions: Energy the ability to cause change.Ecosystem all of the living and nonliving parts working together in a community. Examples include a pond, Silverton, and the world.Ecosystem Energy pyramid - A graphic organizer demonstrating the flow of energy through an ecosystem.
Def: Sun source of electromagnetic energy for earth.How do you know its a chemical change and not a physical change?
SunChemical EnergyLight Travels to EarthLight Energy
Most of the sunlight is lost.It misses the earth entirely orIt hits a spot on the earth without a plant.The spot warms up and that thermal energy floats up into the sky.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMFw5Fhiq24
SunChemical EnergyLight Travels to EarthLight EnergyMost of Light Energy goes into space or does not hit a plant. It is out there but not useful to us.
DEF: PRIMARY PRODUCERSPlantsConvert sunlight to glucose (sugar)PHOTOSYNTHESISAll life on earth is dependent on them.

DEF: HERBIVORESAnimals that EAT PLANTS for their energy.
Another example of an Herbivore...
HerbivoreChemical Energy in bodyThermal Energy*Floats Off Into Space*Animal uses energy to move (lost as friction) or to keep warm (heat goes off into space) all of that energy is hard to use ever again ENERGY FLOWS
CARNIVORES!Well, they are all not dangerous.ANIMALS that EAT OTHER ANIMALS to obtain energy.
HerbivoreChemical Energy in bodyThermal Energy*Floats Off Into Space*Animal uses energy to move (lost as friction) or to keep warm (heat goes off into space) all of that energy is hard to use ever again ENERGY FLOWSCarnivores
Energy is Flowing through from level to level most of it is lost as it floats into space.
Only 10% of usable energy flows onto the next level.Thus, the higher on the pyramid you areThe less efficient is your eating.It takes a lot plants to feed the insects and rodents to feed a hawk.
Upper CarnivoresYou know what I am talking about.LIONS, TIGERS, AND BEARS.
Last in the chain DEF: DECOMPOSERSThey recycle materialsTHEY EAT DEAD ORGANISMS to obtain their energy.MushroomsBuzzardsOh My!
Consider this choice:1) You can eat 1 pound of fruits and vegetables or2) You can eat one pound of hamburger.
CONSIDER: It takes ten or more pounds of vegetables to make that one pound of hamburger.
Copy and Answer this question and then make a pyramid Haiku.The ecosystem pyramid has a wide bottom and small top because _______.HAIKU is 5 7 5.And/or a bumper sticker describing why you can help the world if you eat less red meat.
HaikuFor a cow to liveThousand pounds of plants must DIEVegetarian
Energy Floats UpNot much left when you eat meatMany plants must die
