 2. Make a food chain in your ecosystem with at least 5 TROPHIC             7. Make a food chain in your ecosystem with at least 5 TROPHIC
     LEVELS                                                                     LEVELS
     o   Label each organism as a autotroph or heterotroph, and include         o   Label each organism as a autotroph or heterotroph, and include
         which type of heterotroph (herbivore, carnivore, omnivore,                 which type of heterotroph (herbivore, carnivore, omnivore,
         detrivore) - PURPLE                                                        detrivore) - PURPLE
