Lesson Plan

"Food Chain Mobile"                  Everglades ABCs: 2nd Grade

Student with periphyton algea


Students will build a four part food chain and discuss and demonstrate what happens when one link is removed (an animal or plant becomes extinct).


Our "Everglades ABCs - Activity Guide for Grades K-3" is broken up into 9 sections with materials in each section. The activities take 30 to 45 minutes to complete, and are targeted mainly at kindergarten to third grade students. A class doesn't have to 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.
