Food Chain Game

on March 5, 2012

Last week I was reviewing ecosystems with my students, and I came across this awesome Food Chain Site and Game.

I set up a bit.ly for them to make it easy to find the site (http://bit.ly/cesfoodchain). Students had to use the information to develop definitions of and record examples of producers, consumers and decomposers. Once they completed this, they were able to play the food chain game. While playing the food chain game, students had to record at least two of the chains they developed. It is self-checking and crosses different ecosystems. The readability of the site is about 3rd grade, so it’s simple for all students, but it is full of great information. Check it out!
