This is a set of two ready to print food chain lessons. Day 1: Students will be able to describe how energy flows through a food chain. Day 2: Students will be able to identify primary, secondary, and tertiary consumers in a food chain. Students will be able to create their own food chains.
Before completing these lessons, students should have knowledge of how to classify organisms by producers, consumers, and decomposers. A lesson for that can be found here: Classifying Organisms
If you want a food chain and food web bundle, including the lesson for classifying organisms, you can find that here:
