Food Chain and Freebies

The students LOVED making the animals "eat" the next animal (or grass) in the chain. It comes with lids to keep all the pieces together once it is nested. You can order your own set from Nature Watch.

My freebie today is more seasonal making words sheets. I haven't introduced these yet but I have some smarties than I know are capable.

Truth be told, it is much less expensive to buy a large number of these additional items independently from isolated organizations.
