Demetriou, Dorita; Korfiatis, Konstantinos; Constantinou, Constantinos – Journal of Biological Education, 2009
The ability to comprehend trophic (nutritional) relationships and food web dynamics is an essential part of environmental literacy. However, students face severe difficulties in grasping the variety of causal patterns in food webs. We propose a curriculum for comprehending trophic relations in elementary school. The curriculum allows students to…
