Product Description
Food Chains and You Assignment: This EDITABLE ASSIGNMENT gets students to connect their food sources to themselves through food chains. After years of teaching food chains, I have found that students still do not understand their own connection within food chains. It is difficult for them to look at a hamburger and understand that from the hamburger to their mouth they have become participants in multiple food chains. I devised this assignment to get students to connect their own feeding behavior and need for food with those of other organisms. This product is editable.
