Students explain the role of different organisms in the food web. In this ecology lesson, students participate in a game to simulate mineral cycling through the web. They discuss the importance of recycling minerals and resources.
In this mammals' teeth and diet instructional activity, students read for information, identify kinds of teeth, and sort animals into categories. In this fill in the blank and T-Chart instructional activity, students write multiple answers for two questions.
Students participate in an interactive game to review how living things are classified.
Students explore forest ecological systems. In this ecology lesson, students classify forest plants and animals according to their ecological roles. Students play a related vocabulary guessing game.  Students choose a card on which a forest component is written, and construct an ecological web by passing a ball of string to illustrate the relationships between producers and consumers.
Students recognize that some animals eat plants, some eat meat and some both.  In 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.
Students consider the interdependency of life in a temperate forest by studying selected organisms from an Asian temperate forest and creating a food web.
Students determine
Students describe food cahins and the role of organisms. Using a set of organism cards, they color code the organisms on their cards by their role in the food chain. Once a complete chain is identified, they glue it on a sheet of paper.
Students understand how living things get energy from food and where that food comes from. In this energy for living things lesson, students create a food chain. Students use correct vocabulary to describe their food chain.
Students determine the role of producers, consumers and decomposers in an ecosystem. In this biology lesson, students construct a wetland food web. They apply what they learned by playing a board game.
Students define food chains, recognize fossil park food chains and discuss man's impact on food chains. In this food chain instructional activity, students participate in activities to diagram a food chain and understand the impact of humans on the food chain.
Students explore food webs. In this food web lesson plan, students investigate how plants, animals, and people are interdependent upon one another for food and resources. Students participate in a hands on activity to demonstrate this concept. Resources are provided.
Eighth graders identify the basic elements of an ecosystem and their individual roles. In this life science lesson, 8th graders conduct a scavenger hunt in their local ecosystem. They collect evidence and explain how each component is interconnected with each other.
Sixth graders identify the different animals that live in the tundra. In this life science lesson, 6th graders explain the role of each component in the food web. They discuss possible effects if nonliving components of the tundra were changed.
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 lesson refers to animals that the learners have viewed at a museum. Not to worry, however; you can find photos of animal skulls online or access a terrific animal skulls PowerPoint via Lesson Planet!
Sixth graders identify the living and nonliving components of an ecosystem. In this life science lesson plan, 6th graders connect pieces of a tundra ecosystem puzzle. They discuss how changing the nonliving environment affects the living things in it.
Investigate the animal food chain with an art project. Learners discover how the animals work together to form the food chain by creative artistic representations that describe the new concept.
Learners study the Venus Flytrap including its habitat and how it eats.  In this ecology lesson students complete several experiments using a Venus Flytrap to see how it reacts to various conditions. 
What can your class learn from a skull? With proper facilitation, they can learn about diet, physical adaptations, special differences, and even the environment. Pupils will examine a series of mammal skulls and pelts to help them understand why different mammals have adapted similar, yet varied, traits based on environmental factors. Mammal skulls, teeth, and pelts can usually be borrowed from local museums.
Young biologists look up words that have to do with plants and animals that are commonly found in suburban areas. They name herbivores, carnivores, and organisms that are decaying. They then draw some sketches from the list they compile.
