Ocean Food Chain

One of our lessons last week was to teach the food chain in the kindergarteners.  The explanation given in our teacher's manual, I thought, was difficult for students to understand.  After a bit of searching I found a Wild Kratts video that was perfect.  One of my teammates has been using Wild Kratts during inside recess and being made by PBS, I knew it would be could.

The video did not disappoint.  It was a great 2 minute explanation of what our teacher's manual wanted me to cover.  Did I mention I was in a professional development session during this part of the day?  A video was the perfect way for me to know that the material was covered in a way that students would understand.

After watching the video, students completed their own ocean food chain based on what they learned in the video.

You can download your own copy of the Ocean Food Chain here.  Please note, it is formatted to be printed on legal-sized paper!
