This lesson plan provides an ideal introduction to the concept of food chains. Students complete a food chain diagram then listen to a clear explanation of each link in the chain from producers to third-level consumers. The listening also includes a clear explanation of why food chains are important. A gap-fill consolidates key vocabulary such as: ‘carnivores’, ‘herbivores’, ‘consume’, ‘destroy’ and ‘produce’. A fun group speaking activity asks students to describe a food chain word to their friends without using that word.
