Students need time to process, practice and apply science vocabulary. These 5 stations help students deepen and practice their learning after learning about food chains, food webs and the energy pyramid.
These stations are intended to be used AFTER students have learned these science vocabulary concepts. (Food Chains, Food Webs, Energy Pyramid, Producers, Consumers. Types of Consumers.)
