Collecting resources for teaching about food chains and food webs?
I pulled these resources out of my More about Butterflies
product just for teachers who want to focus on teaching food chains and food webs.
You can choose the animals you want to feature as you present food chains and food webs
. Choose from butterflies
, and wild cats
. You could have different teams in the class working on different animals!
This product could be part of a unit that meets NGSS 5-PS3-1♦ and 5-LS2-1◊.
Here's what I included in the product:
♥ Quick overview of the food chain for a butterfly
♥ Fun activity using paper strips, choose from blackline or color images, English text or Spanish text - kids love to take this home to share with family members
♥ A video showing how to create the food chain model
♥ Five PowerPoint™ presentations make it easier to introduce the information, the ones that have text have both English text and Spanish text
♥ A short text for students to read. You can choose from three reading levels (grade 1-grade 5) in English and two in Spanish. You can print color images or blackline images for students to color.
♥ The five versions of the student text has been recorded for students who benefit from hearing the information
♥ Four different options for assessing: quick, pencil-and-paper, for the struggling student, and for the capable student
