Who Eats Who
Levels: Year 7 - Year 8
During this whole-building tour, students will learn why and how food chains and food webs function, and the roles & interactions of varying organisms within them. Students will also consider the impact human activity can have on these systems, and consider the concept of sustainability and renewable resources. Through real-life case studies, students will observe and discover a range of unique physical and behavioural adaptations & interactions employed by marine life to find food, and prevent becoming someone else’s!
