Food Chain Ideas

I am moving to 2nd next year and already getting ideas together. I have a lesson on the food chain, which I think could lend itself well to a hands-on activity. Any ideas?

Hi! I have used this idea in 3rd and 4th, and it would work in 2nd as well.

My kids pick a producer, consumer, and decomposer. They draw a picture of each on a very small paper plate. They arrange the three in the correct order of the food chain. Then I just stapled the three plates together (like a stoplight) and hung them up around the room.

This was a great lesson to be creative and imaginative, but also make them THINK! They wanted to put a rabbit with a shark and a mushroom, without taking into consideration that those don't live in the same ecosystem! They had to be accurate in their food chain. Hope this helps!
