This is a student-created PowerPoint about carnivorous plants. The first slide describes where they can be found. The next two slides consist of long lists of different types of carnivorous plants. Slide five displays photos of some of these plants. The creator also addresses how they catch food, the difficulty of cultivating, and traits of three different more common varieties. This is not a resource that you would use for teaching about these unusual organisms, but it could be shown as an example should you want to assign presentation creation to your class.
Students identify various types of animal skulls and teeth. In this ecology activity, 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.
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. A follow-up page of 10 analysis questions is included. A splendid assignment for your biology or environmental science 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 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.
