What Animals Need to Live
Fourth graders read "Habitat: What Animals Need to Live" then create a Venn diagram for herbivore, omnivore, and carnivore. In this animal survival lesson, 4th graders determine where different animals need to live depending on what they eat, and summarize what elements are needed for survival (food, water, shelter, space).

An Uncertain Future
Students study the distribution of large mammals and carnivores in an ecosystem. Using maps and historical data, they examine areas for these animals such as refuges, untouched forests, prairies and grasslands. Students determine actions necessary to protect animals and their lands.

Big-Teeth Carnivorous Creatures
Students, after researching the survival skills of carnivorous animals with large teeth, build a realistic model of a carnivorous creature. They compare and contrast how their carnivorous creatures grow, survive, move and behave to those of a shark, lion or wolf.

Skulls Tell It All
Skulls tell it all, and with this lesson plan, you will tell it all to your class! Youngsters view animal skulls, analyzing the shape of teeth and the placement of the eye sockets. They associate these adaptations with the types of food the animals ate.

The Farmer's Web
Learners explore food webs. In this food web lesson, students investigate how plants, animals, and people are interdependent upon one another for food and resources. Learners participate in a hands on activity to demonstrate this concept. Resources are provided.

Weaving a Tangled Web
Here is a practical activity for reinforcing understanding of energy flow in ecosystems. Learners identify whether each organism in a list is a producer or decomposer. They tell if each is an herbivore, carnivore, omnivore, or detritivore. Then they construct a food web using those organisms.

Skulls- Herbivores, Omnivores, and Carnivores
Young scholars identify various types of animal skulls and teeth. In this ecology instructional activity, students define the terms herbivore, omnivore, and carnivore and study animal teeth and skulls. Young scholars observe the characteristics of the teeth and identify what kind of diet the animal consumed.

Dinnertime for Animals
Is a deer an herbivore? What about a spider? Experiment with the food chain in an interactive science experiment. After listing the herbivores from a selection of animals, third and fourth graders compare the skulls and teeth of herbivores and carnivores (you'll need to provide the pictures).

Who Eats Who?
Students recognize that some animals eat plants, some eat meat and some both. For this who eats who lesson, students chart animals in a food chain. Students research information from reading articles. Students chart what animals eat on strips of colored paper to make a paper chain of food animals eat.

Pictures of different animal skulls make this slide show fascinating. The intent is to display the differences in structure among herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores. If you do not have animal skull replicas, this presentation would be of great value when teaching adaptations or animal eating habits.

Food chains at sea
Fifth graders interpret a table of data about food chains in the ocean. They create a food chain to represent the information on the table. Periwinkles eat seaweed, and crabs eat periwinkles - so who eats crabs? Extend the activity with a research activity about carnivore and herbivore dinosaurs.
