High School Science Learning Activity: Arctic Food Web
In this activity you will travel to the Arctic and learn the difference between primary producers and consumers, secondary and tertiary consumers, and detrivores; with examples of each. Follow the arrows and then test yourself. Include other animals in the food web and try to think where they belong, and if they are consumers, or producers.

This course surveys key topic areas including the application of scientific process to environmental analysis; ecology; energy flow; ecological structures; earth systems; and atmospheric, land, and water science. Topics also include the management of natural resources and analysis of private and governmental decisions involving the environment. Students explore actual case studies and conduct five hands-on, unit-long research activities, learning that political and private decisions about the environment and the use of resources require accurate application of scientific processes, including proper data collection and responsible conclusions.
