Take your students on a tour of the food chain. Come along on an expedition with Dr. Brian Jerome as he visits Vermont's White River Watershed, its flowing waters, forests, wetlands, and rocky shores to examine how energy and matter are transferred through the environment. Students will learn about food chains and webs by studying the interactions of the plants and animals of this region. They will look at plankton, insects, grasses, salmon, moose, deer, coyote, trees, flowers, and algae in the natural setting of Vermont. Throughout this program, students will learn why food chains and webs are important in their daily lives. This program is curriculum-linked and meets the National Science Standards for Middle School Life Science (Content Standards C) as well as the AAAS Benchmarks for Science Literacy (5th Interdependence of Life).Â
