In this hands-on and interactive class, students will learn about food chains and apply what they learn to build their own Lego food chain. We will discuss the roles that producers and consumers play in food chains and students will learn how energy flows from one organism to another. After students learn about each link in the food chain, they will build this component into their Lego food chain. Time permitting, we will briefly discuss what happens when a link in a food chain is removed. ...
Students will develop an understanding of the different components of food chains by learning about and building their own Lego food chain.
I have taught third-grade science in a classroom setting for four years. I have served as my school district's third-grade science content expert. I have also served as my school's science academic leader. I have a Master's degree in biological anthropology. More generally, I am an advocate for scientific literacy and I love exploring scientific concepts with students!
No homework will be assigned.
Basic Lego collections will suffice for this class. Since students are designing their own food chain, the specific pieces they will need is dependent on what they decide to build. I suggest that students bring whatever Legos they have with them to class (loose pieces rather than creations that are already assembled please). It will be helpful to have some red or orange pieces for the Sun and some green pieces to make plants/trees. Blue pieces will also be helpful since we are making an ocean food chain. A large base plate will be helpful, but not required.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will demonstrate their understanding of the class concepts through verbally describing the components of their Lego food chain.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class contains no sensitive content.
