This foldable explains the transfer of energy through a food chain within an ecosystem. The food chain begins with the sun's energy, followed by a producer. The food chain continues with a first order consumer through 4th order consumer. A visual of a sample food chain is provided.
This product is a half-sheet single flap fold-up which explains the transfer of energy through a food chain. In addition, a sample food chain is shown. The sample food chain begins with the sun, followed by a producer and a first order through a fourth order producer.
The teacher has two fold-up options:
For the teacher short on time, run a completed inside sheet. This fold-up will be finished and ready to be used by students with just a simple fold.
If the teacher has time and would like the fold-up to be more
interactive, run the fill in the food chain description inside sheet. A description parts sheet will have to be run too (4 sets of parts per page.)
Directions on how to assemble are also included.
Fold-ups are a wonderful resource that fits well in an interactive notebook or can be used as a stand alone resource. I find that my students refer to the fold-ups throughout the entire school year!
