Insect Habitat Web

by: David Alexander

Students, in this activity, create a list of living and nonliving things found within a field habitat and discuss their relationships, through the creation of a simulated web using a ball of yarn. At the end, students will be able to describe the living and non-living components found in an insect habitat and identify their roles and relationships in a food web. Students will be able to understand the interdependence of all life forms, including humans (i.e., dependence of human life on the resources of the planet and on a healthful environment).
