Do you need some extra worksheets available for your subs to use? Or maybe just a little extra work for your early finishers? Great to leave for a sub!

This bundle of food web worksheets is just what you’re looking for!

These worksheets will help you cover standards NGSS 5-LS2-1 and MS-LS2-3.

NGSS 5-LS2-1: Develop a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment. Emphasis is on the idea that matter that is not food (air, water, decomposed materials in soil) is changed by plants into matter that is food. Examples of systems could include organisms, ecosystems, and the Earth. Assessment does not include molecular explanations.

NGSS MS-LS2-3: Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem. Emphasis is on describing the conservation of matter and flow of energy into and out of various ecosystems, and on defining the boundaries of the system. Assessment does not include the use of chemical reactions to describe the processes.

Each worksheet has a food web diagram, and they cover a variety of habitats.

Students will analyze the food web diagram and answer the questions. The focus is on the flow of energy in the food web and patterns of interactions between organisms.

I used these for science warm-ups and they were great! Good questions and students had to really understand the concepts.

I love these! Each food web is different and has different components. The questions are good. I sent home one page each day for homework.

The elephant article was excellent but I also thought the lab on dissecting a flower was broken down so easily, even telling me where to get inexpensive flowers!  This resource helped me teach this challenging standard in an engaging way.  Worth every penny!

My students loved this unit. I was able to present different elements of it throughout the month. It is hard to find interesting non-fictional, age-appropriate text for my students that they will enjoy. This was a great unit that aligned well for my students who have very different goals within the same group.

I am so impressed with this unit which manages to be distance learning and hands-on at the same time.  Really well thought out and engaging activities that allow students to practice each of the eight Science and Engineering Practices.  Really no prep for me!
