Food chain and food webs

Designed to meet the KS3 and KS4 specification. Covers introduction to food chains and links towards food webs. Discusses how the sun provides all energy to food chains. Activities will help students understand how chain is dependent on each step. Worksheet enables students to deepen learning on herbivores, omnivores, apex predators etc. Lesson then leads into pyramid of numbers and pyramids of biomass with example questions for plenary.

Science Food Chain Sorting Cards

Great activity for studying Food Chains. Real life photos of animals and plants. 28 cards in total. Can be sorted into producers/ consumers; omnivores/ carnivores/ herbivores; food chains. Tip: why not let the students have a competition and build the longest food chain?! Images included: tuna fish zebra arctic cod slug shrimp shrew shark seal red fox rattlesnake rabbit polar bear plankton owl oak leaf mouse lion human hawk green plant grass frog earthworm dead leaves cow caterpillar blue tit + sun, food chain Just print them off, cut into little cards and laminate for durability. Enjoy!

Food chains and Food webs

Intro to food chains and food webs and the differences between the 2. Worksheet and presentation, plus a pdf worksheet that I found on internet about foodwebs in wetlands. I like the last page, you can have the students create their own food web, you can either give the sheet as it is and they will place the arrows or you can just give the list of animals and they design their own food web on a blank sheet.

Food Chain PuzzlesQuick View

Food Chain Puzzles

These Food Chain Puzzles can be used to practice making food chains with organisms in a garden habitat. This is a Spring themed Food Chain puzzle. The cards are perfect for group work and stations. Each puzzle card has an organism name and picture on it. Each of the first five pages has three puzzles and each of these puzzles has a producer (plant or plant part), a primary consumer, and a secondary consumer. The sixth page has more consumer organisms that can be spliced in to make longer food chains. After the cards are cut apart for the students, the page six puzzle cards can be mixed and matched with them. 15 Puzzles. 6 Pages. Grades 2-4. The producers (plants or plant parts), in this set include: grass, leaf, bush, seeds, nectar from flowers, and fruit. The consumer organisms in this set are: caterpillar, bird, grasshopper, lizard, snake, bee, dragonfly, aphid, ladybug, rabbit, eagle, chicken, man, rat, owl, cow, fly, frog, rat, cat, sheep, toad, butterfly, and goat.

Science FOOD CHAIN / PREDATOR PREY Game Activity

A perfect whole-class game to practise food chains and predator/prey relationships. The file contains 32 cards (8 different food chains). Give a card to each student, who then has to find other members of their food chain. Print and laminate for durability.

Graded Task sheet on Food Chains and Food Webs

This is a worksheet that students can use to consolidate their knowledge and understanding. The worksheet is differentiated and includes a checklist, key words and an extension task (Legendary Level). There are several ways in which you can use the task sheet. 1. After an explanation give students time to work at their own pace on the tasks they wish. 2. Select a specific task for students to complete. 3. Use each task as separate parts of your lesson. 4. Set the task as a book or computer based research task. 5. Set the task sheet for homework. This task sheet covers 1. Designing a food chain. 2. Designing a food web. 3. Interpreting a food chain. 4. Design an investigation based on food webs.

New AQA Ecology Spec- Food Chains, Levels of Organisation & Trophic Levels- Powerpoint & Worksheets

This resource is a PowerPoint presentation and worksheets that covers the Levels of Organisation (, and the Trophic Levels ( information on the 2016 AQA Ecology specification. The basic structure of the lesson is as follows: 1) Starter- Differentiated question to write out the equation for photosynthesis (Grades 4 to 7) 2) A slide to go through the equation to the highest grade. 3) A gap fill activity- Worksheet provided. 4) Gap fill activity answers provided to go through as a class. 5) A slide to explain what biomass is. 6) A true or false activity about food chains- Worksheet provided. 7) A rearrange the three food chains activity, with linked questions. 8) A key term and definition card sort activity- The card sort template and a worksheet to write their answers on is provided. 9) Three slides all explaining about trophic levels, producers, consumers, herbivores, carnivorous etc, so that the students can self/peer assess their answers to the card sort activity. 10) A differentiated assessment activity- 'Design your own labelled food chain activity' where all of the key words for this topic must be labelled. This activity rages from Grade 3 to 5. There are then 3 graded questions from Grades 6 to 8. 11) A slide with the answers on so that the students can self/peer assess their work. 12) A key facts from the specification slide. 13) A predator-prey graph slide. 14) A differentiated activity where students either use their AQA textbooks (page included) and/or the internet can be used for this activity: "Design your own predator-prey graph and annotate it to describe (level 5) and explain (level 6) the changes". 15) Plenary- Completing the plenary triangle- Worksheet included. 16) Plenary 2- Completing the assessment sheet to see what target they achieved and assess if they achieved their target etc- Worksheet included.
