Students research different species of meat-eating animals in their natural environments to create a Carnival of Carnivores exhibit for their classroom.
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.
Students complete pre reading, writing, and post reading activities for the book Carnivorous Plants. In this guided reading lesson plan, students complete writing, go over vocabulary, answer short answer questions, have discussions, and more.
Students identify various types of animal skulls and teeth. In this ecology lesson, students define the terms herbivore, omnivore, and carnivore and study animal teeth and skulls. Students observe the characteristics of the teeth and identify what kind of diet the animal consumed.
Students examine how carnivorous plants get their nutrients from animals.  In this food web lesson plan students examine how the plants attract their prey and are given many onilne sources to research.
In this reading comprehension check activity, students read an article titled " Carnivorous Plant Facts" and then 5 short answer and graphic organizer questions.
Students research carnivorous plants and how they trap insects. They role play as botanists to write a research field guide about a newly discovered imaginary carnivorous plant.
Here's a fine lesson that combines poetry with life sciences. Learners carefully listen to a poem that's all about a food chain. As the poem is read, learners name the producer, the herbivore, the carnivore, and the omnivore. Lots of terrific scientific discussion should result from the reading of this poem. Then, pupils get into groups and come up with their own original poem that depicts a food chain. They illustrate their poems, and the products are displayed on the bulletin board.
Youngsters compare the teeth of plant-eating dinosaurs with those of meat-eating dinosaurs. The concepts of herbivore vs. carnivore are also introduced. There is an excellent worksheet embedded in the plan which shows five skulls of different dinosaurs. Pupils must match up each skull with the food source that dinosaur most likely consumed. Terrific discussion and meaningful learning should result from implementing this resource with your class.
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).
Learners explore our ecosystem by researching animal eating habits. In this food chain lesson, students identify the links between predator and prey and the energy that passes between organisms based on what their diet consists of. Learners identify food chain vocabulary terms such as "omnivore" and "carnivore" before conducting a class food chain game which all students participate in.
Young scholars discuss the concept of a food chain in the California ecosystem. in this food chain activity, students look at different cards and sort them into herbivores, carnivores, decomposers, and omnivores. Then they use these cards to create several food chains. 
Second graders engage in activities that show energy-food cycle. They draw their favorite food. They classify carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. They role-play animals/plants to sort out what is eaten and by what. They create a web that shows food chain.
Students examine skulls of different animals, focusing specifically on various types of teeth, differentiate between skulls of predators and those of prey, and compare and contrast skulls of carnivores, herbivores, and omnivores.
Students identify animals in ecosystem depicted on 16th Century ceramic basin and classify them as herbivores, carnivores, or omnivores based on physical characteristics and prior knowledge, determine which life forms in ecosystem are producers, consumers, and decomposers, and create food web that shows transfer of matter within ecosystem.
Students complete a food chain. In this ecosystem lesson, students learn about producers, consumers and decomposers. Students identify herbivores, carnivores and omnivores and complete two worksheets.
Middle schoolers explore the differnences between food producers in food webs and food consumers in food chains. Behavioral choices of primary and secondary consumers such as herbivores, vegetarians, carnivors, and omnivors are analyzed.
Students study structural animal adaptations and how they aid survival. They examine the differences between carnivores, herbivores, and omnivores. They investigate the specialized body parts that assist the animals when they eat. They write a menu for an animal that caters to its specific adaptations.
High schoolers 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.
Students construct numbers pyramids using fictional data from a coral reef. they tally the numbers of carnivores, herbivores, and producers. Students next build a pyramid shape in which they put their numbers of producers, herbivores, and finally carnivores at the top.
