Some items may havemore than one arrow coming to it or leaving from it.- Detailed descriptions of each item. State the name of the item. Include if this item is anomnivore, herbivore, or carnivore. This would also be a great place to include if your item is adecomposer, consumer, or producer. Is it living or non-living?Presentation: Your presentation may be completed in any manner you chose.

BiomesThese are some of the biomes in The United States. Choosean ecosystem from below to create your food web.GrasslandsDesertDeciduous ForestCoasts
Food Web ExampleThis is an example of a food web from the rainforest. This is not afood web you would be able to use in The United States. However,you can see how different food chains interlock to create the foodweb.Your project can look very similar to this, using animals from thebiome you choose. However, you will need to include a moredetailed description of each animal to meet the requirements ofyour rubric. As well, the tropical biome is not part of The UnitedStates.
