Arctic Food Chain
Explore the food chains that support Arctic ecosystems. A class discussion on interdependence and the different roles plants and animals play in ecosystems provides students with the knowledge to complete a worksheet asking them to create food chains involving a variety of Arctic life.

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).
4th Social Studies & History
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.
9th - 12th Science
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.
1st - 6th Science
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.
6th - 12th Science
Skulls- Herbivores, Omnivores, and Carnivores
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.
4th - 5th Science
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).
3rd - 4th Science
Who Eats Who?
Young scholars recognize that some animals eat plants, some eat meat and some both. In this who eats who instructional activity, students chart animals in a food chain. Young scholars research information from reading articles. Students chart what animals eat on strips of colored paper to make a paper chain of food animals eat.
2nd - 3rd Science
Carnivore or Herbivore?
First graders explore animal teeth. In this animal adaptation lesson plan, 1st graders collaborate as they sort through animal teeth and categorize them. Students then classify foods eaten by animal according to the teeth they have examined as they pair share and write a statement.
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.
4th - 8th Science
Habitats and Food Chains
Uncover the world of animal habitats, food chains, and the ecosystems with this well-put-together presentation. Each slide contains information and images that represent various aspects related to the ecosystem. Habitat, animal adaptations, consumers, producers, and predator/prey relationships are all covered.
2nd - 3rd Science
Monster Plants Storia Teaching Guide
Who wouldn't want to read a book about monster plants? Get those kids into informational texts with an engaging topic, like meat eating plants! You'll use the teaching guide to provide structured practice as your class reads to comprehend. They'll make predictions, preview vocabulary, define cause and effect, and engage in small and full group discussions.
