Good ideas for your presentation:

 

When constructing your food web, use the shapes and arrows found in Microsoft Power Point or in the Google Documents toolbar to show how the energy flows from producers to consumers to decomposers.

 

Use a BrainPop video or other short video to show during your presentation.

 

When presenting, use note cards to remember what you will say, be enthusiastic, and have fun J
