Create a chart of the ocean’s very complex food chain. Each level of this chain is dependent on the organisms below as a food source. Find out the importance of each of the four categories of marine life that make up the ocean.
Discuss with students the delicate balance of life in the ocean. All living creatures are dependent on other species for survival.
Using available resources in the library and/or Internet resources, ask students to research the ocean’s food chain. Working in small groups, students make a list of prey and predators that live in the ocean in order from smallest to largest.
Students use Crayola® Classic Markers to illustrate an ocean’s food chain on a large piece of poster board. Start with the largest animal at the top and continue drawings in a circle to illustrate findings.
Label each of the predators or prey with Crayola Markers using bold colors.
Student groups prepare a brief presentation of their findings to share with classmates. This presentation may be written or electronic.
Provide time in the school day for students to share their ocean research.
