PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product includes NINE fun, memorable, and engaging activities to help your 4th-6th graders better understand food chains and the energy pyramid.


Activities include:

Energy Pyramid Reader’s Theater: This reader's theater provides a fun way to dive into food chains and energy pyramids! The story analyzes how energy is passed from one organism to the next and how a break in the food chain affects an entire ecosystem. Science vocabulary defined and discussed in this reader's theater include producer, photosynthesis, consumer, herbivore, omnivore, carnivore, decomposer and scavenger.

Life Science Bingo: This Bingo game is a fun review or practice for an upcoming tests on 4th-6th grade Life Science. Students can play in small groups in stations or you can play as a whole class. This game includes the following vocabulary: food chains, food web, energy pyramid, herbivore, carnivore, omnivore, consumer, producer, decomposer, adaptation, learned behavior, ecosystem, organism, metamorphosis, predator, prey, photosynthesis,and examples of organisms in a food chain.

Life Science I Have Who Has: This "I have who has" game reviews Life Science vocabulary for 4th-6th graders. Students read the vocabulary definitions and must find who has the correct matching definition. Timing students can encourage them to help each other, communicate clearly, and set goals to beat their time. Includes 19 vocabulary words and 5 blank cards: food chain, predator, producer, carnivore, structural and behavior adaptation, prey, ecosystem, omnivore, decomposer, energy pyramid, learned behavior, photosynthesis, herbivore, consumer, food web, organism, complete metamorphosis, and incomplete metamorphosis.

Food Chain Puzzle: The puzzle can serve as a fun test review, science center activity, and even an easy activity for a substitute. Just print and have students cut out the pieces (make sure to remind them to mix up the pieces!). Then students can glue the puzzle together on construction paper or you can laminate the pieces and save the puzzles for years! For more puzzles, see my Science Review Puzzles.

Food Chain Word Ladder: A game where students start at the bottom of the ladder and using the clues, they make their way up the ladder by solving a new word at each step! Make it a competition and split the class into teams! Answers included. For even more word ladders, check out Science Word Ladders.

Energy Pyramid Foldable: This foldable turns into a pyramid that helps students visualize the energy pyramid flow of energy from producers to herbivores to carnivores to decomposers. The template already has definitions of producer, herbivore, carnivore, and decomposer. Students will then think of their own food chain to draw and label on the diagram. This product includes one template for students to use and one template with a food chain already filled in to help inspire your class. Clear directions on each template explain what to do, where to cut, and how to fold. You can use this as for note-taking, assessment, or a fun practice activity.

Life Science Word Sort Cup Game: Students will play a sorting game to review for a 4th or 5th grade level science assessment. In teams, students will get a cup with letters and together must sort those letters into a vocabulary word. Then they must find the question on their game sheet that the corresponds to the word. Teams must sort all 15 words from 15 different cups in order to win. Vocabulary includes food chain, food web, herbivore, carnivore, omnivore, producer, decomposer, photosynthesis, carbon dioxide, adaptation, learned behavior, inherited trait, extinction, incomplete metamorphosis, and complete metamorphosis.

Energy Pyramid Notes: This foldable allows students to define science vocabulary other than the traditional note taking style that they can glue into a journal. Includes parts of a food chain, consumes, producers, decomposers, herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, scavengers, photosysthesis and draw their own pictures inside of an energy pyramid.
