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 investigate the dietary habits of animals by creating a food web.  For this food chain lesson, students research the animals commonly eaten by panthers in the wild.  Students create a large food web poster using Clip Art and images from the Internet. 
Students create food webs for two different ocean communities. They are given cards showing organisms from the surface of the ocean. They arrange them in order of who eats whom. After this class activity, students create a food web for the hydrothermal vent community they have studied.
Tenth graders explore the ecosystem of the Flathead Lake to find how organisms interact.  In this ecosystem instructional activity, 10th graders create a food web, graph organisms in the lake, and answer questions about the interactions of living things in Flathead Lake.
Learning about the food chain opens a Pandora's Box of opportunities to learn about endangered animals and the environment.
Focus on building strong technology skills while teaching basic scientific concepts. Fourth graders work with the school media specialist to research, collect digital images, and create a multimedia presentation on food webs. They connect the food web to ecology and integrate technology to share what they know.
Fourth graders, after researching a Florida ecosystem, illustrate a food web based on the organisms living in that ecosystem.
Students produce a newspaper covering topics related to food webs. They use print and electronic sources to gather information about specific animals. They share their information with the class.
Students use an interactive web-based food web game to gain familiarity with tropic levels and interactions. They already understand that in an ecosystem there are four basic tropic levels: producers, primary consumers, secondary consumers, and tertiary consumers.
Take a field trip to observe Koalas, absolutely! Budding scientists become familiar with the Koala's position in the food chain. They answer questions based on what they see and draw a food chain explaining the Koalas position. Tip: A lesson like this can be associated with any animal common to your local area.
Here is a fantastic lesson your class is going to love! They get to dissect owl pellets in order to better understand the food chain as well as producers, consumers, and decomposers. They examine several websites, discuss the food chain, dissect owl pellets, draw diagrams, and compose detailed paragraphs describing how the pellets show the food chain in action. A lesson full of fun engaging activities and learning opportunities.
Learners explore the interdependence of the animals and plants in tropical rainforests. They explore the importance of conserving biodiversity and tropical food chains. They create a tropical forest food chain and identify species that live in the Caribbean National Forest.
Students discuss the characteristics of producers, consumers and decomposers. Using a flow chart, they construct a food chain to visually show how organisms with different energy sources depend upon one another. Students explore a model of a food web and discuss characteristics of each consumer.
Students investigate the concepts that are related to the balance of an ecosystem. They take part in activities that illustrate the delicate balance that exists between producers and consumers in an ecosystem. Students define the difference between a food chain and food web.
Fifth graders explore how invasive species affect the Great Lakes. In this science lesson, 5th graders research invasive species and create a food chain involving the invasive species. Students discuss how the environment is affected by the invasive species.
Learners identify species and components of a Great Lakes food web. Using note cards, they place themselves in the correct order of the food chain based on the species present. They discuss what they believe happens to various species over time.
Fourth graders investigate food chains. They review cycles and discuss ecosystems. They select an environment and create a food chain in small groups. They write their food chain and label it for the class to evaluate. They create food webs of the foods they have eaten.
Students research an animal to define its food web and life cycle. In this animal life cycle lesson, students research an animal and define its food web. Students then present their animal food webs to the class and note other animals in the same web. Students combine their animals by connecting with each other using a length of yarn. Students answer discussion questions about their animals.
Students make food webs for Arctic animals. In this Arctic animal lesson, students examine basic food chains and attempt to write a human food chain. They complete a worksheet called the Arctic Food Web using classroom resource materials.
Pupils explore the elements of a forest ecosystem. They examine the elements needed to form a forest food web. Students construct and describe food webs that include nonliving elements of the ecosystem.
