Kemtec Science: The Food Chain

Target Grades: 4-7

Number of Students: 24 students working in six groups of four


This kit is designed to show the intricate balance and relationships between different levels of the food chain and the importance of these levels to humans and our environment. Students study the different relationships within an environment, the importance of each organism, how energy is transferred, and the delicate balance in the environment of a food web. Producers, consumers, herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, predators, prey, decomposition, energy flow, food cycles, food chains, food webs, and food pyramids are all discussed. Students observe pond water and soil habitat food webs and pyramids and study the effects of acid rain, road salt, and field runoff on these environments; model decomposition of plant matter; and design their own food webs. Includes a card game, slides, transparencies, and instructions for activities.‚
