Wetland Food Webs
Students study life science. For this food webs and food chains comparison lesson, students examine the wetlands to discover the relationships that exist between the animals that live there. They participate in group activities and discussions and also complete independent journal entries.
6th - 8th Science
Food Chains and Food Webs
Fourth graders investigate food chains. In this living environment lesson, 4th graders begin to understand the interdependence of organisms. Students describe the connections organisms have to the ecosystem. Students research online, draw food webs, write songs, and compare and contrast animals and their roles in their habitats.
Weave an Aquatic Food Web
Young scholars explore organisms that are part of interconnected food webs. In this food web instructional activity, students choose an animal and research what the animal eats. Young scholars begin with the food chain and branch out into the interconnected web following the organism chosen.
5th - 7th Science
Students study food chains by creating their own slide show using KidPix. They compare information after sharing their slide shows as a whole group. As the children are watching the slide shows of their peers, they tally every time they see an animal that is also in their food chain.
Tropical Forest Food Chain
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.
2nd - 6th Science
Habitats and Food Chains
Uncover the world of animal habitats, food chains, and the ecosystems with this well-put-together presentation. Each slide contains information and images that represent various aspects related to the ecosystem. Habitat, animal adaptations, consumers, producers, and predator/prey relationships are all covered.
2nd - 3rd Science
Food chains at sea
Fifth graders interpret a table of data about food chains in the ocean. They create a food chain to represent the information on the table. Periwinkles eat seaweed, and crabs eat periwinkles - so who eats crabs? Extend the activity with a research activity about carnivore and herbivore dinosaurs.
4th - 6th Science
Dinner in a Woodland
After reading a short paragraph about what makes up a woodland habitat, fifth graders attempt to identify the primary consumers, secondary consumers, and third order consumers in two separate food chain scenarios. They also name a hawk's prey and the shrew's predator in these food chains.

The Owl's Pellet
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.
4th Science CCSS: Adaptable
Bill Nye The Science Guy on the Food Web
Plants. We can't live without them! Bill Nye discusses how every living thing relies on plants using a concept called the food web. In a very visual demonstration, he ties a cord from one picture to another on a three-dimensional structure, tangling himself up in a virtual food web!

Creating a Food Web
Young scholars investigate hunters and prey by creating a food web. In this animal life lesson plan, students investigate a single organism in preparation for a field trip, discovering its diet and habitat. Young scholars each discuss their animal with the class and create a food web using yarn to connect to each other.
