    • Data Manipulation
      • The students will view a PowerPoint.
      • The students will discuss the PowerPoint with a peer.
      • The students will then take a walk with a partner around the schoolyard and make a chart to list the plants and animals that they see.

    • Data Manipulation Continued
      • The students will get into groups of 4 or 5 and create a video on www.animoto.com showing a representation of a food chain.

  • The NTeQ 10-Step Lesson Plan
    • Activities while at the Computer
      • The students will create a video on www.animoto.com showing a representation of a food chain.
      • The students may use the Internet and non-fiction books.
      • Remediation students: Video must include pictures representing a food chain.
      • Enrichment students: Video must include pictures and words representing a food chain. You all must identify each picture.
  • The NTeQ 10-Step Lesson Plan
    • Activities prior to the Computer
      • The students will view a PowerPoint on Plants, Animals, and Food Chains.
      • The students will discuss the PowerPoint with a peer.
      • The students will then take a walk with a partner around the schoolyard and make a chart to list the plants and animals that they see. They will come inside and classify which organisms are producers and tell why. Classify which animals are consumers and tell why. Then circle organisms that might belong to the same food chain and link them together. Draw arrows to show the movement of energy.
