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 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.

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 webs and food chains

Organisms need to be cut and pasted into their correct places in a food web. Two differenciated versions of this activity here - one with clues. I then give the students a number of questions based around the completed web.

Transfers in food chains, energy loss, pyramids of numbers and biomass, bioaccumulation, pesticides.

A complete, and ready to deliver, high quality KS3 lesson from Barclayfox. (For USA - this lesson is for use between 6th to 8th grade). This is a complete lesson from start to end, you do not need to spend many hours carefully planning, creating, resourcing and improving this lesson after each use. I have already spent those hours preparing this lesson for my students and improving it over many years. This is a very high quality lesson. There is nothing for you to do but give it a quick look through and familiarise yourself with it. Lesson objectives: * Represent food chains using Pyramids of numbers. * Describe how energy is lost as it transfers down the food chain. * Calculate biomass and create pyramids of biomass. * Explain bioaccumulation of pesticides and the effect. This carefully crafted lesson is over 30 slides long, and is full of these learning activities: * Notes to help the teacher. * Starter - complete the food web. * Starter - simple task where students self-assess against the objectives. * Matching game - answers are provided. * Role play - spread of pesticides up the food chain. * Questions – all answers are provided. * Peer marking & Self marking opportunities * Up and about activity - role play * Theory slides (carefully sculpted, interspaced with learning activities, not ‘death by powerpoint’). * Activity sheet - with answers - simply print it off for each student if required. * Play ball opportunities * Video clip links - several (carefully selected – this alone can save you 20+ minutes of searching). * Paired work activities – all answers are provided. * Homework - optional / at your discretion using the activity sheet. * Scientific Literacy activity. * Scientific Numeracy activity * SMSC opportunity - use of pesticides & effect on organisms. * Student self-assessment versus objectives activity – so learners can judge for themselves how much they have learnt. * Extension activities – just in case additional activities are required.

KS1 Food Chains - Differentiated Quick View

KS1 Food Chains - Differentiated

LO To understand food chains /complete a food chain. I can use a food chain to show how animals get their food. I can name some sources of food. I can give examples of carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. I can order living things in a food chain. Remember to… Recall what key vocabulary means Start with a producer. End with a consumer. Think about what each animal eats. Explain that today we are going to think more about those purposes, thinking carefully about something called a food chain. Ask children if they know what one is. Explain what one is and how they work. Explain that each animal is important because if one animal was missing from a food chain it would affect the other animals. Share with the children food chain PowerPoint which gives information and asks questions. Explain that today they need to use their knowledge of what animals eat thinking back to herbivores omnivores and carnivores lesson. Explain that they are creating and completing food chains. Do some together. HA: Working independently children use pictures to create as many food chains as they can. After the picture activity they can draw their own / answer questions HA/MA: Working independently children will have food chains with mostly one picture. They will need to complete them using the labelled pictures to support them. MA: Working independently children will have one part of the food chain they will need to complete it by cutting and sticking the pictures. MA/LA: Working with CT children will have one part of the food chain they will need to complete it by cutting and sticking the pictures. Plenary: Ask children to share some of the food chains they have created and completed. Twinkl quiz if time….. Attached to powerpoint. Use bloom’s questioning to deepen and embed learning.
