This is an Ocean Food Chain puzzle. The cards are perfect for group work and stations. Each puzzle card has an organism’s name and picture on it. Each of the first six pages has three puzzles and each of these puzzles has a producer (sea plant), a primary consumer, and a secondary consumer. The sixth and seventh pages have more consumer organisms that can be spliced in to make longer food chains. After the cards are cut apart for the students, the page six and seven puzzle cards can be mixed and matched with them. Has 18 food chains.
The producers in this set include: algae, seaweed, sea plant, and phytoplankton (microscopic sea plants). The consumer organisms in this set are: shrimp, small fish, sea urchin, dolphin, mackerel, eel, starfish, crab, lion fish, sea sponge, turtle, jellyfish, tuna, angel fish, anemone, cuttlefish, krill, surgeonfish, humpback whale, barracuda, swordfish, manta ray, octopus, mahi-mahi, marlin, shark, clam, seagull, oyster, salmon, and lobster. The cards are placed in chronological order on the first six pages.
Need an answer key? Print out the first 6 pages ( 4-9) on a smaller scale, e.g. 6 sheets on a page, to serve as an answer key for students.
Tip: After this activity is done, the cards can be cut in small rectangles and used to make a picture food web.
