Make a mobile using index cards and string. I had my middle schoolers do it years ago and they loved it. On each card the name of the species was on one side and other info was on the back. They can add pictures also. Hang them up around the room!

I had my students make links like a chain. They used green for producers and red for decomposers. Other colors were used for consumers. After they made a basic chain with 5 links (1 producer, 1 decomploser and 3 consumers) they had to branch their chains out towards a "web" and add other consumers to their consumer links representing other animals/organisms that would consume them.

I don't know if it qualifies as "cute," but I had my students draw the food chain for their own meals. They had to figure out the ingredients in everything and then draw the flow of energy up to themselves.

They had a lot of fun with it and were really interested in how their food was also part of a chain.

I had my students make paper chains (the strips were different colors: yellow for the sun, green for plants/purple for berries, and they chose the colors for the secondary consumers). Next, they had to cut out pictures to place on the chains to show the flow of energy. Good Luck.

I like this idea - how long would you say it would take them to make though and did you give them some sort of directions on how to assemble it?

Just wondering... I'd really like to do this, but I teach 4th grade and they are hard to keep on task!

I would like to use your method for a presentation. Now I wanted to ask whether this is your own idea or if you know the author of this method? I need this information for referencing!

Thanks in advance,
Sarah
