Food Chains and Food Webs

Hi guys, I wanted to share with you a lesson we did on food chains and food webs.

Some of the things we learned are:
  • What is a food chain
  • What is a food web
  • What the difference between the two is
  • What a food chain consists of
  • Producers
  • Consumers
  • Decomposers
  • What happens when a food chain/food web is disturbed
  • Who is at the top/bottom of the food chain

We read these three books mainly. Pass the Energy, Who Eats What? andFood Chain Frenzy

Out of the three books this one was our favorite, its a beautiful poem with gorgeous pictures.

We worked on some notebooking pages Food Chains and Types of Consumers.These free printables can be found here.

Food Chain Puzzle notebooking page. This free printable can be found here.

Energy Pyramid notebooking page.

This is a fun craft the boys worked on. This free Printable can be found here.

At the end of our unit we worked on a hands on project to help cement the concept.

The printables I used for this activity can be found here.

Some of the videos we watched:

Wild Kratts Food Chain Games

Magic School Bus Gets Eaten

Bill Nye Food Web

Hope this gives you some ideas on a unit study. If you have any activity suggestions I would love to here it.
