Food chains demonstrate the amazing interdependence that exists within nature. From sunlight and photosynthesis to plants and animals, food chains are critical to our ever changing natural world.

Food Chain Activity Kit For Kids | Food Chains & Food Web Craft Kits For Activities & Lessons

Food chains demonstrate the amazing interdependence that exists within nature. From sunlight and photosynthesis to plants and animals, food chains are critical to our ever changing natural world. Our Food Chain Activity Kit teaches children about the importance of food chains and provides a model for them to create and take home. Color, cut out and glue the images onto the 5 tubes which represent different links in the chain; then, starting with the smallest, have each member of the model…

Flippyity Flaps

Warning: I went a little crazy with hyperlinking. Once I started... I just couldn't stop. You've been warned. One of my goals for science is to make using our textbook more exciting. It's common knowledge that textbooks don't possess much of that "cool factor". I've always been a fan of Dinah Zike's Foldables, but until recently I hadn't quite figured out how (or when) to use them. Then, my wheels starting turning. As part of of plants chapter, I wanted my kiddos to be able to recognize the…

READY FOR A CRAZY FACT?!!?  This sea slug (Elysia chlorotics) can eat kelp and other plants and filter out the chloroplasts to their own cells! The chloroplasts then actively turn sunlight into energy for up to a YEAR!!! PHOTOSYNTHESIZING ANIMALS!!!! Alright, that's all lololol no one cares :P

A green sea slug found off North America's east coast not only looks like a leaf, but can also make food out of sunlight, just like a plant.

It's Plantin' Time! - Around the Kampfire

Our plant life cycle activities are always a highlight of our year! We spend most of our fourth quarter studying the life cycles of plants, butterflies, frogs, and meal worms. It’s one of my most favorite times of the year and one that my kiddos really look forward to! Our end of the year open […]

Understanding that Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration are Opposites – a hands On Science Activity Blog Post #39

Teaching a grade nine applied science class photosynthesis and cellular respiration and how these two reactions of life are opposites can be challenging, even when only using word equations. Last week I experienced a Eureka moment when some of my students got it! Photosynthesis: Carbon dioxide + water + sun’s energy ® glucose + oxygen Cellular respiration: Glucose + oxygen ® carbon dioxide + water + usable energy We started out simply exploring the word “opposite” which I felt was an…
