This resource includes 48 sorting cards that include producers, primary consumers, secondary consumers and decomposers. Animal and plant species are native to North America.
This resource is designed to address the Disciplinary Core Ideas for NGSS Ecosystem: Interactions, Energy and dynamics.
The resource also includes 6 task cards with self checking activities and optional response sheets.
Great for small groups, partner work, centers and fast finishers.
Science Concepts include:
producers, consumers, decomposers
herbivore, carnivore, omnivore
autotrophs and heterotrophs
NGSS 5-PS3-1. Use models to describe that energy in animals’ food (used for body repair, growth, motion, and to maintain body
warmth) was once energy from the sun.
NGSS 5-LS2-1. Develop a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment.
