A dynamic and interesting way to have your students practice key vocabulary words associated with the different trophic levels of food chains, by Sean Tamarisk.
Activity is all about classifying organisms into categories: Producers, Consumers, or Decomposers, Heterotrophs or Autotrophs, and Carnivores, Herbivores, Omnivores, or Detritivores. Great way to ensure your students have these words MEMORIZED by the end of the class.
Format is gallery-walk style. Prep is 5 minutes to paste the information sheets of the 20 different organisms around the room. Then, pass out the student sheet, and you're ready to go! Gets your students up and moving around the room, accessing the kinesthetic modality.
