Close Connections of the Pyramid Kind
Year 8 scientists design pyramids showing connecting food chains as part of British Science Week 2023
As part of British Science Week 2023, we designed and decorated pyramids to show connections between food chains.
We drew our pyramid net in maths and took it to our science lesson where we researched different food chains to draw on each side of the pyramid. We had to find food chains that were connected in some way, as the theme for British Science Week was ‘connections’. The pyramids were judged on construction, creativity, accuracy and connectivity. My partner, Babara and I won a prize for the pyramid that scored the highest in all those categories. We enjoyed this activity, learnt a lot about different food chains and it was good to see how maths and science can also ‘connect’ together.
