Learners classify mammals as carnivores or herbivores. They look at a set of pictures of animal skulls, observing the shape and size of the teeth, and identify herbivores and carnivores.
In this biodiversity worksheet, students sort and classify animals by their observable features using a dichotomous key. Students then respond to questions about complete and incomplete metamorphosis.
Students complete various activities to learn about animals and their types of teeth. In this animal teeth lesson, students watch a video of animals consuming food. Students study observation charts of animals and write questions for each chart. Students use the think/pair/share method to discuss their observations and then use pictures to learn about herbivores and carnivores. Students complete a sentence frame with the information they learned.
Students explore characteristics of mammals.  In this animal biology lesson, students complete several activities such as examining their teeth and recording their findings, comparing and contrasting the teeth of herbivores and carnivores in a Venn diagram, and examining movements of different mammals.  To conclude the lesson, students use reference materials to draw and explain characteristics of a mammal of their choice.
In this alligator worksheet, students read a short essay describing the natural history of this reptile. Then students complete 3 fill in the blank and 3 short answer questions.
Students 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. Students identify food chain vocabulary terms such as "omnivore" and "carnivore" before conducting a class food chain game which all students participate in.
Students discuss the concept of a food chain in the California ecosystem. in this food chain lesson, 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.
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.
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.
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.
Students 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 review dodging, chasing and fleeing skills while reinforcing concepts about dinosaurs. They need to review the following concepts about how dinosaurs eat and move: Herbivores eat plants, carnivores eat meat, and omnivores eat both.
Students study dinosaurs. They discuss the different types of dinosaurs and their characteristics. They discover the difference between a carnivore, an herbivore, and an omnivore. They compare the sizes of dinosaurs to everyday objects.
Second graders study a specific food chain, acorn-squirrel-coyote, and organisms that are producers, herbivores or carnivores. They act out the roles of different organisms in the food chain. They study the affects of removing carnivores and plants from the food chain.
Fifth graders examine the concept of the food chain and define producer, consumer, herbivore, carnivore, and omnivore. They draw a food chain for a mouse and discuss the different organisms involved in the chain, and conduct an experiment to observe two containers with soil and varying conditions.
Pupils identify a predator, prey, omnivore, herbivore, carnivore, and an ecosystem. They describe how living things depend on one another for food energy (food chain) and how more than one food chain exists in an ecosystem (food web).
Students explore plant adaptations to their surroundings. In this plant adaptations lesson, students watch an interactive video of plant adaptations as well as videos about a desert biome and carnivorous plants. Students complete a plant adaptation experiment using corn seeds. Students complete a worksheet about 'Living Life as a Plant.'
Seventh graders investigate the concept of how an ecosystem is put together while conducting research using a variety of resources. They correctly differentiate between a herbivore and carnivore by placing them in the order of hierarchy on the food chain.
