The End.

Huddle for a discussion about the food web and have students place puppets on the coral reef community posterboard.

  • We are learning that animals that live in the coral reef depend on each other.

- Why do they depend on each other?

  • We call this a food chain.

(Show students color coded paper chain)

- What would happen if we removed a link (e.g. carnivores) from the chain?

stick puppets to the reef community poster
Stick puppets to the Reef Community Poster!
  • Think about where are puppets would go in the reef community. The arrows connect who depends on who.
  • Here are some plants or algae. Who has an animal that eats plants (herbivore)?
  • Call herbivores up one at a time to stick their puppets to the poster.
  • Here are some urchins. Who has an animal that eats urchins? Etc.
