Life Cycles and Food Chains

Food chains/web game (This takes a lot of prior prep, but can then be saved for future use). Prepare cards with the names of different plants and animals that are in the same food web. Make sure that each chain in the food web has card of a different colour for instance grass -> rabbit -> fox all have an orange card and berries & seeds -> thrush -> hawk all have blue cards. Hand out all the cards and then get pupils to find people with the same colour cards and then organise themselves into a food chain. They can then in turn explain the order they are in, identify the producers, consumers, predator & prey etc. To extend tell all the grasses to group together at the bottom of the room, give each one a piece of string and extend out to the other members of their food chains and so on in doing so also make sure all the aphids are together and all the foxes are together basically you end up making a visual web of string in the lab between all the pupils and the can see how the food chains make up a food web.
