Please click the PREVIEW button above for a detailed look at this unit.

**Herbivore, Carnivore, Omnivore or Decomposer

This unit includes 6 Herbivore, 6 Carnivore, 6 Omnivore and 6 Decomposer picture cards for sorting. The picture cards come with and without animal name labels. I've also included Herbivore, Carnivore, Omnivore and Decomposer header cards to sort the pictures under. The decomposer header cards and pictures are not needed for sorting if your class does not study those.

These cards are great for the Science Center! You can make the center self-checking by placing a colored dot on the back of the main sort cards and the same color dot on the back of the picture cards it corresponds to.

**Food Chains Activities

The next activity also includes real-life animal pictures and 5 different food chains for the kids to put in order (all food chains begin with the sun). Students can then draw the food chain they created into their science journals, draw and label their food chain on the included recording sheet or glue the recording sheet into their journals. Recording sheets are also included in several versions depending on what you need.

**Food Chains Printables:

HUGE variety of ready to use printables to help you teach, reinforce, review or assess learning with your students. Includes KWL charts, ABC order, cut/paste, label the picture, notebook foldables, draw/label/describe, vocabulary science notebook foldables and fact sheets to name a few!

**Food Chains Anchor Charts:

Full color anchor charts feature real pictures and perfect for centers, bulletin board displays or hanging around your classroom. Includes the following: Food Chain, Organism, Carnivore, Herbivore, Omnivore, Decomposer, Producer, Consumer, Primary Producer, Primary Consumer, Secondary Consumer, Tertiary Consumer
