Interested in forest food chains? We were, so we made a free printable forest food chain game to play and found some great forest food chain books as well. They pair nicely.
Use the poem to create a class food chain book. Copy the text onto blank sheets of paper. Have the students illustrate the pages and create a title page and a front and back cover. Bind the pages together into a book.
Activity Two: Food Chain Poem Book
Write the poem shown below on chart paper. This poem can be sung to the tune of "I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly." Sing the poem several times to your class, pointing to the words as you sing them. Repeat this several times, inviting students to sing along with you.
In groups we were given 3 pieces of paper and we had to make a food chain flipbook. It was really fun, sometimes easy and sometimes hard. We had to fold our paper very carefully to make 6 flaps and then we had to glue these together. Behind each flap there are pictures showing what the animals in our food chains are. We have learnt what top predators, producers and consumers are. These words will go into our food chain glossaries. We will post some pictures of our work when it is finished but here is what they look like so far.
