Food Chain

Third graders explore why food chains are important. In this food chain lesson plan, 3rd graders break into small groups to represent parts of the food chain. Different amounts of food are given to each group and any spilled food will be picked up only by insects to show how they get food. Students then illlustrate the food chain they created.

Lesson Planet has helped me differentiate my classroom as needed. I always find it easy to adapt work for struggling learners but find it more difficult to adapt work for higher level learners. By using lesson planet I get great ideas to create fun, challenging work for my higher level learners.
