This primary science pack is an excellent supplement activity sorting, categorizing, teaching, centers, assessment, and organizing set.
Included: vocabulary word Labels, ( predator, prey, consumer, producer, decomposer, herbivore, omnivore, carnivore, flow of energy, food web, food chain, energy pyramid, ecosystem) arrows (for food webs, chains, and flow diagrams), image cards of various producers, consumers, and decomposers, and a useful graphic organizer (complete and incomplete) to demonstrate the flow of energy in an ecosystem, flow of energy poster, and two food web/food chain activity sheets
How to use: This is a supplementary pack to help you teach about food chains, food webs, herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, consumers, producers, decomposers, predators, prey, and the general flow of energy in an ecosystem.
1.)Use the vocabulary labels on a board to teach the whole class, and have individuals come up and place the correct picture card under the correct label. Another option is to have students put the labels in order of the flow of energy of an ecosystem. You can have them sort the cards based on whether they are producers, consumers, decomposers; whether they are predators or prey; or whether they are carnivores, omnivores, or herbivores.
2.)In addition, you can print out many labels and picture cards for the entire class and have them work in small groups or centers to work on categorizing.
3.)Another great option is to use the arrows, vocabulary labels, and the picture cards to make food webs or food chains as a class or in centers.
4.)Finally, the graphic organizer can be projected on the board for students to copy, or you can make individual copies for students to put in their science notebooks. There is an extra section on the organizer for students to write their names and additional notes.
Feel free to come up with other creative uses as well!
You and your students will understand the concept of how the flow of energy in an ecosystem works with this pack!
