After teaching food chain lessons, you can read one of any
“There was an old lady who swallowed a ________”
books. There are many different versions. I love the books by Lucille Collandro (pictured below), as they coincide with holidays throughout they year AND the old lady does not die at the end (which in the traditional books, she usually does). Using the worksheet, have kids illustrate the food chain in the book.
Then, have students make their own food chain, leading to the old lady. I used circle dye-cuts to be the parts of the food chain (photo of example on last page). You could also make a food web in the same idea.
Included is an overview, old lady works sheet, completed worksheet example, old lady printable, and photo of food chain project.
