Lesson Plan

"Create a Food Chain"              Wildlife: 4-6th Grade         

Ranger and students


The student will be able to: a) define common terms used in the study of ecosystems, i.e., organism, food chain, food web, and inter-relationships; b) compare and contrast characteristics of the natural Everglades/South Florida with the urban environment in which they live


Our "Wildlife" unit is broken into 15 lesson plans, each taking from 20 minutes to several class periods to complete, and targeted mainly at 4th-6th grade students. A class needn't complete every lesson in the unit, though some lessons do refer to one another and are better done in sequence. However, each lesson comes with its own set of objectives and resources.
