Wetland Food Webs
Students study life science. In 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. This lesson includes worksheets, vocabulary, and resource information.
Forest Food Webs
Students consider the interdependency of life in a temperate forest by studying selected organisms from an Asian temperate forest and creating a food web.
Weave an Aquatic Food Web
Students explore organisms that are part of interconnected food webs. For this food web lesson, students choose an animal and research what the animal eats. Students begin with the food chain and branch out into the interconnected web following the organism chosen.
Interactive Food Webs
Introduce the concept of food webs and chain reactions. Students explore a series of provided web sites and work collaboratively to complete an activity and worksheet. This is a supplemental activity to reinforce a larger lesson.
Impact of a Changing Climate on the Pacific Walrus
How many of us can say they've seen a Pacific walrus? Not many and one of the reasons is the impact of climate change on their aquatic environment. Children get to think about the food web of the Bering Sea by creating an actual web with animal cards and a ball of yarn, after they see how all animals and plants of the sea environment are connected, they discuss what would happen if one or more of the animals were to become extinct. The web would start to break down and all animals would be affected. They research ways to protect a declining walrus population.
Food Webs and Food Chains
Fifth graders examine the circle of life. In this food webs and food chains activity, 5th graders examine the interdependence of organisms in ecosystems as they consider how energy flows through the web or chain. Students create a food web of an ecosystem.
Students identify producers and consumers, including scavengers and decomposers, and discuss role each plays in food web. They then make diagram of possible food chain that might include skull pictured on Montana's quarter, and participate in scavenger hunt.
Ocean Life Food Web
Students construct a food web representative of the Gulf of California. They use pictures to depict all of the organisms in the appropriate level of the web (producer, primary consumer, etc.)
Activity 1: Please Pass the Energy, Food Webs in the Upper Ocean and Hydrothermal Vent Communities
Middle schoolers 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.
Food Chains and Food Webs
In this biology worksheet, students read about food chains and food webs. They then answer 4 questions regarding the information they just learned. The answers are on the last page in the packet.
Food Webs in the Barnegat Bay
Students investigate the food webs in the Barnegat Bay. In this organisms activity, students use a graphic organizer to illustrate the types of consumers in the bay. Students use reference books to continue to research the animals found in the Barnegat Bay.
Food Chains and Food Webs
Fourth graders study intertidal organisms and their role in the food web. In this food web lesson, 4th graders read the book The Sea That Feeds Us and discuss food webs. Students study pictures of intertidal creatures and discuss their role in the food web. Students are assigned a sea creature and connect them with yarn to illustrate a food chain. Students study the roles in the food web and sing a related song.
Food Web Mystery
Students define marine food webs. In this marine food web lesson, students explain why food is scarce in deep-ocean environments. They discuss how Orange Roughy are able to obtain sufficient food in a deep-ocean environment.
Creating a Food Web
Students investigate hunters and prey by creating a food web. In this animal life lesson, students investigate a single organism in preparation for a field trip, discovering its diet and habitat. Students each discuss their animal with the class and create a food web using yarn to connect to each other.
The Fishy Food Web of the Flathead
Tenth graders explore the ecosystem of the Flathead Lake to find how organisms interact. In this ecosystem lesson, 10th graders create a food web, graph organisms in the lake, and answer questions about the interactions of living things in Flathead Lake.
Food Chains & Food Webs
Tenth graders examine how energy is lost through different trophic levels. In this trophism lesson students construct a food web and view a video.
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.
Panther Food Web
Learners investigate the dietary habits of animals by creating a food web. In this food chain lesson, students research the animals commonly eaten by panthers in the wild. Learners create a large food web poster using Clip Art and images from the Internet.
Students identify predator/prey relationships based on the food web of the tropical rain forest ecosystem and realize they need a food web for survival. In this food web lesson plan, students complete a role play activity being animals in the rain forest.
Lessons: Food Web
Learners 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.
