Hungry for Knowledge: Students Decode Nature’s Dining Drama
In sixth grade, students completed an independent research project on food webs. This year, we integrated this geography lesson with art and technology - the perfect combination for an engaging and authentic learning experience!
First, students selected a tertiary animal to complete their research project on (e.g., whale, shark, python, polar bear, mountain lion, etc.). Students researched and gathered information on both the animal and the ecosystem this animal lives in, and recorded this information in Freeform.
Once completed, students picked an app to create a food web based on the information they gathered. Some students continued using Freeform, while others used Keynote or Canva.
Selecting one of their food chains, students chose the animal templates (or they could create their own) to then create their artwork (see picture below).
The final step in this process was for students to create a QR code for their food web, and attach it to their artwork.
