We made some food chain puzzles, and they were such a big hit with the kids! I used them as an intro activity for the unit, but I have teachers using them in their classrooms as a review.
Students color and cut out each organism in the two food chains. They place them on the habitat mat in the order of energy flow. Producer –> Consumer/ Herbivore –> Consumer/Carnivore –> Consumer/ Bigger Carnivore.
Then, they write the food chain at the bottom of their habitat mat. The ocean habitat is shown above, but there is also a savanna habitat food chain puzzle.
Check out the video below to see one of these puzzles in action!
Food Chains and Food Webs Intro activity — Students put together the Who Gets Eaten By Who Puzzles to start thinking about the order of energy flow in an ecosystem. All my lessons start with something fun to get the thinking, interest, and curiosity flowing. My kiddos LOVED coloring and playing with these puzzles 💚 #teachersworkstation #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #science #teacher #iteach4th #iteach5th
