What's for Dinner? Instructional
This storyboard does not have a description.
Good morning students, today we will learn that all animals, including people, depend on plants as a food source, either directly or indirectly
Materials Needed: Writing Materials Chalk Board
Students, please make a list of everything you had for dinner on a particular evening. Or you could invent a dinner menu of your choice.
You will all analyze where your food comes from. Each item on the menu should be traced back to a plant. This activity can be done individually or in a group.
Please create a flow diagram or chain that shows the major source of each food (e.g., milk, cow, grass). Some chains will be long, some short. Some of you will have to do some research.
What are some of the things you learned from this activity students? Please make 2 generalizations about plants and animals.
The food for cows is grass.
Cows make milk, which we drink.
Make at least 3 food chains using what I wrote on the board. Answer the question and finish the sentence.
People, rabbits, grass, lettuce, earthworms, hawks, mice, insects. Which of these animals do not need food: horse, snake, person? All of the food eaten by animals must first come from ____?
