This teaching resource was developed by a K-12 science teacher in the American Physiological SocietyÂs 2008 Frontiers in Physiology Program. For more information on this program, please visit www.frontiersinphys.org. This lesson investigates variables that affect ecosystems by using a series of simulations, including a student-designed simulation to model the impact of an environmental disaster on bird populations. Students create simulations that model different bird beaks and food types and impacts of weather and other environmental factors. Students should have some prior knowledge of food webs and food chains as well as energy flow through ecosystems. Upon completion of this activity, students will be able to design an experiment and test a hypothesis to test how a condition affects an ecosystem.
