This is a pond habitat lapbook insert that focuses on the PRIMARY CONSUMERS in the pond life cycle food chain. Students will learn that the primary consumers are the pond wildlife that feed on the pond producers (pond plant life). Students read informational text about the pond life cycle and fill in the "Primary Consumers" in the booklet insert. In addition, students will complete the "Who Am I?" accordion booklet that provides clues and space to sketch some of the primary consumers in the pond habitat.
This is a great follow-up activity to accompany a pond life cycle non-fiction book (i.e. "Pond Circle", "Song of the Water Boatman", or the like). There is also a link to a fabulous set of pond wildlife cards that you can download, print, and use for this lapbook activity.
