Product Description
Food webs teaching has never been this engaging or fun. This food webs activity includes 67 slide EDITABLE PowerPoint and a two page editable worksheet with ANSWER KEY on food webs. Though food webs seem to be an easy topic, every year I have found that students have difficulty understanding the structure of a food web as well as understanding the impact that organisms in the food web have on each other. Because of this I developed this comprehensive, step-by-step activity, which has helped my students really understand the structure of a food web.

TEACHERS WHO HAVE USED THIS PRODUCT HAVE SAID:

♥ "As always, your stuff is awesome!! I LOVE that this is not just a presentation...but an INTERACTIVE activity for the kids!! I want one for each unit!!! These are fantastic!" (Thanks Mary R.)
♥ "This has been the best resource I've used this year. The students really enjoyed the activity and I feel that this helped clarify their understanding of how food chains link together to form food webs." (Thanks Casandra K.)
♥ "Very helpful and clear resource! It worked best with some of my students were still having difficulty following arrows. Once they saw how each arrow lit up (outlined by color) it started to make sense to them!" (Thanks Ann M.)
♥ "This resource is great! We did a lot of this together in class and the students stayed engaged and wanted to answer! Will use this every year~!" (Thanks Shelley D.)

***************************************************************************

The PowerPoint guides and prompts students to answer the questions in sequential order on their worksheet. They have time to analyze the diagrams in front of them and come up with an answer before the next slide in the PowerPoint shows them the correct way of answering the questions.

This activity is best done after students have already understood the structure of a food chain and understand concepts like: herbivore, omnivore, carnivore, top carnivore, producer, primary consumer, secondary consumer, tertiary consumer and quaternary consumer.

I always do a full lesson on food chains, trophic levels and ecological pyramids before leading into this activity. It’s a great introduction to this activity and my students have had a lot of success with this one-two punch. You can find links to the food chain, trophic levels and ecological pyramids lesson in the link to my catalogue on the bottom of the page.

***************************************************************************

IN THE FOOD WEB ANALYSIS ACTIVITY, STUDENTS WILL LEARN:

1. How to count the number of food chains in a food web. There will be one example done with them, and then three food webs for them to count the food chains on their own - easy, medium and difficult food webs.

2. How to determine how many food chains any given organism belongs to.

3. How to identify and count the following organisms in a food web: herbivores, omnivores, carnivores, top carnivores, primary consumers, secondary consumers, tertiary consumers and quaternary consumers.

4. How to identify and count organisms that have more than one role, e.g. organisms that are both primary and secondary consumers.

5. To analyze how the extinction of one organism in the web will impact on other organisms. e.g. if the fox goes extinct, what is the impact on the plants and squirrels etc.

To help give them more practice with analyzing food webs, I have created review worksheets and flash cards.
