Animal Research Printables and Food Chains

I'm thrilled that other teachers may want to use the Research Folders I described in the last post. I've posted them down below and you are more than welcome to download and print them. I don't charge for any of my stuff and gladly share what I have.

Some have suggested I post on Teachers Pay Teachers. Instead of doing that, if you would like to support me with a monetary contribution you could donate funds for an upcoming Relay for Life Walk I will be doing in April. I would be so very appreciative!! You can donate as little as $5.oo and every little bit helps so much! My Relay for Life Page link is here and it will allow you to make a contribution online.

Now to Food Chains. Are you familiar with this book? Debbie Diller presented it at a Guided Reading Conference I attended a couple of years ago. It is fabulous and has a repeating, predictable text that lends itself to choral reading. Last year I had my students create their own versions of this story in writer's workshop. They wrote stories like: Tundra Circle, Grasslands Circle, Desert Circle, etc.

Here are some other great read alouds to teach and reinforce the idea of food chains:

Again, my pictures refuse to load horizonally. Does anyone know what's up with that? Anyway, my kids were given a name of a member of an organism from a particular biome. They illustrated onto a paper plate. We then mixed them all up, handed them out and they had to try to create a food chain. This worked great and the kids enjoyed the time up out of their seats.
We stressed the point that the producer is always at the end of the food chain and someone drew the sun too since that gives energy to the plant.
Here are the research booklet documents. Hope you are able to use them! Email me with any questions!

  20. Hi! I am a new third grade teacher and LOVE all of your ideas! We are starting our animal unit this week and research will be after Thanksgiving. I was wanting to use your research model but am not able to download it from this site. I was wondering if you could please email it to me at theald@mckinneyisd.net? I was also wanting to know if you got the names for the food chain game from the books that you listed above?
    Thanks so much,
    Tracey
