Michele Palazzo Teacher_____________________ Date________________________ Subject______________________ Objective: Students will be able to use their knowledge of producers, consumers, secondar

consumers, tertiar consumers, and decomposers to recreate food chains! Lesson Presentation: "! #n groups, students will recei$e pictures of different organisms from different le$els of the food chain! The students will be told that toda the are going to become different organisms of a food chain! %! &lass will re$iew lesson from esterda , roles of producers, consumers, secondar and tertiar consumers, and decomposers in food chains! '! (ach group will also recei$e ribbon) arn! *! The teacher will model how to recreate a food chain with two students, using the pictures gi$en! +! (ach group will create food chains connecting the picture the are wearing to the ne,t appropriate le$el b holding onto a piece of string and passing it! -! Students will create food chain from grasslands habitat and from an ocean habitat! .! /nce the ha$e completed their food chains, the will redraw what the created in their science notebooks, labeling each organism and its role! 0! (ach student will also recei$e a sheet of 1uestions to be answered in their science notebooks! 2! /nce students ha$e completed drawing the food chain and answering 1uestion, the students will share their answers with their group! "3! Students will recei$e a 4what stuck with me5 stick and post it to chart paper!
