The Dinosaur Diner
Students explore the food chain. For this dinoaur lesson, students identify charactersitics of an omnivore, carnivore, and herbivore. Students sort dinosaur picture/word cards into groups by their eating characteristics. Students also search the internet for more information on dinosaur diets.
Dinosaurs Are Dino-mite!
Young scholars complete a unit on dinosaurs. They explore various websites, create a dinosaur skeleton using pasta, construct a dinosaur diorama, write an essay, create a book about dinosaurs, and list and summarize theories about dinosaur extinction.
Animal Sorting & Matching
In this animal sorting worksheet, 5th graders first match animal pictures with their names and a fun fact. Students must then fill in 15 blanks based on information given on the matching cards.
Web of Predators and Prey
Middle schoolers investigate the food chain by researching the Internet. In this ecosystem lesson, students view the video "Competitor and Predator" and read a book from the series "The Magic School Bus." Middle schoolers utilize a worksheet to identify direct links between certain animals and their prey.
Mouthparts and Digestion
Students explore the relationship between structure and function in the mouthparts of different animals including humans.
Food Web Mobile
Students explain the main concepts of food webs and food chains. They describe the role of animals, plants, and other organisms in cycling energy and matter through a food web by creating mobiles. Lesson contains adaptations for all levels.
Mouth-parts and Digestion
Middle schoolers view pictures and videos to compare the structure and function of animal mouth-parts. In this structure and function activity, students explore online pictures and videos of animal mouth-parts. They compare the structure of the parts with their function and with human adaptations.
In this mammals and carnivores worksheet, learners classify ten pictures of mammals into the Order Rodentia, Order Artiodactyla, or Order Carnivora. Students then classify eight carnivores into the following scientific families: Ursidae, Mustelidae, Felidae, or Canidae. A description of each order or family is provided.
Insect Travel Brochure
Students explore the concept of insects and their habitats. In this insect habitat activity, students create travel brochures for particular insects. Students must include habitat, producers, and consumers with in the vacation spot.
Energy Flow in Ecosystems
This smart slide show outlines energy flow in ecosystems. It addresses the sun as the primary source of all energy, flows into explanations of photosynthesis and respiration, and explores trophic feeding levels and productivity. Appropriate for middle or high school ecology classes, it can be followed with photosynthesis or cellular respiration laboratory exercises.
Fourth graders study food chains, producers, consumers, and decomposers. They play a food chain game and create food chain mobiles or posters. They take a nature hike around the school and observe various parts of a food chain.
Water's Edge Café
Students observe water birds feeding at a local wetland, record what they see, and construct an appropriate menu for a "Waterfowl Cafe." They also play a "flocking" game.
Who Am I?
Students classify organisms into one of five categories: producer, consumer, decomposer, predator, or prey. Students play a "Who Am I" game. Signs are hung on the backs of fellow students They must ask questions to determine what ecosystem element is posted on their back. Next, students participate in a "Weird Web" activity where they create a food web using string.
Reading comprehension and note-taking skills are practiced as young ecologists embark on this journey. Explorers visit a website where they will read about three ecosystems that are in danger. They use interactive programs to build a food web and create a caterpillar. Finally, they participate in a field study of a local ecosystem. This all-inclusive lesson plan appeals to all learning styles and can be used as an interdisciplinary unit.
Where Do All the Toxins Go?
Young scholars demonstrate how chemicals accumulate in fish fat. They study path ways of toxins in the fish's body and ways to prepare fish to avoid consuming the toxins. They examine U.S. and Canada regulations to protect the environment.
Food Chains & Webs
Fourth graders examine roles of animals in food chain, explore roles of humans, plants, and animals in ecosystem, create their own food webs, and role play producers, consumers, and decomposers.
Endangered Ecosystems Grades 6-9
Students research endangered ecosystems. They complete a variety of online activities regarding these ecosystems and the animals that live in them. They culminate the unit with their own project that traces activity in the ecosystem in which they live.
For this plant nutrition worksheet, students read for information and assess comprehension. In this true and false, fill in the blank, multiple choice, and short answer worksheet, students answer ten questions.
Giant Meat-Eating Plant Discovered
In this reading for comprehension learning exercise, students read an article about a recently discovered giant meat-eating plant and answer punctuation, grammar, vocabulary, spelling and comprehensive questions. Students answer 8 multiple-answer questions.
Students explore the concept of endangered ecosystems. In this ecosystem lesson, students are grouped into certain endangered species groups. Students research and learn about their ecosystems. Students wrap up with a discussion.
