ideas needed for Food Chains and Ecosystems

We will also be studying Food Chains/food webs and Ecosystems. I was wondering if anyone has any tips, experiments, activities, projects, or ideas for teaching these concepts? I've had them draw a food chain before, but I don't think we can make the hanging mobiles. For ecosystems, they usually make a diorama in a box and put an animal in it...and they do an animal report at the same time. I am just curious what you guys do, as I haven't taught 4th grade in four years!
TIA

I found a website with a Habitat website, there are some things there you might want to use.
Google Mr. Collinson's grade 4 science.

I do a unit on Raptors/Birds of Prey, focusing on the owl and the food web beneath it. We dissect owl pellets as a lab. We also visit the National Forest's Nature Center for a presentation on food webs, centering around Raptors.
