1 Name: __________________ Date: _______Period: ______ Food Chain Project Directions: This project involves picking a single species of animal and making a PowerPoint slideshow that shows a specific food chain it is involved with. Pick your animal wisely, because later in the year, you will be doing a much larger PowerPoint project involving the same animal. No two people may choose the same species of animal. Your food chain needs to have at least four organisms in it, starting with a producer and ending with a top predator. You will need to have pictures of the organisms and arrows that point from one to the next in the correct direction for a food chain. You will also need to give their common name as well as their two part scientific name of all the organisms in your food chain. You will also need a works cited slide. On this slide, you must copy the URL of a reputable web page that verifies the information that you provide. Wikipedia, Ask.com, and Ask Jeeves are not considered reputable sources and may not be used. Underneath the URL, you need to write a description of the information or tell us which picture you found on that page. The URL need to take me to the page that verifies that your information is correct. Sign-up for animals is first-come-first-serve. You will not be able to sign up unless you have the correct scientific and common name of the animal. Scientific Name: ________________________________________ Common Name: ________________________________________ Instructors Signature: _________________________ Grading Rubric: 1)Pictures of each organism in a real food chain (5 points) ________ 2) Correct common name and scientific name of each organism in the food chain (5 points) ________ 3) Arrows in food chain are pointing in the correct direction (5 points) ________ 4) Correctly done works cited slide (points) ________ No credit will be given for any organism or picture that doesnt have a working URL that takes me to a reputable website where your information can be verified See next two pages for an example project
