Students are introduced to the classification of animals and animal interactions. Students also learn why engineers need to know about animals and how they use that knowledge to design technologies that help other animals and/or humans. This lesson is part of a series of six lessons in which students use their growing understanding of various environments and the engineering design process, to design and create their own model biodome ecosystems.

In this online interactive, learners match different dinosaurs to their food (plants or animals). Learners look for clues in the bodies, necks, teeth, and heads of the dinosaurs to make inferences about their diets. After making their selections, learners can read through short blurbs about each dinosaur, including information discovered by archaeologists and paleontologists. (less)

In this activity about dinosaurs and survival, learners use scrap materials to create a miniature dinosaur habitat that includes a food source, water source, and shelter. This resource includes definitions of key words (habitat, carnivores, herbivores, omnivores, extinct) as well as discussion questions to further learning. (less)

In this activity about dinosaurs, learners first participate in a group discussion about where and when dinosaurs lived, how big they were, and who studies them and how. Then, learners use their imaginations to create dinosaur puppets with recycled art supplies and a sock, while considering what features their dinosaurs need. Learners make up stories to go along with their puppets and are encouraged to put on impromptu shows. A list of discussion questions is included in this resource to further the learning. (less)

Students learn about energy and nutrient flow in various biosphere climates and environments. They learn about herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, food chains and food webs, seeing the interdependence between producers, consumers and decomposers. Students are introduced to the roles of the hydrologic (water), carbon, and nitrogen cycles in sustaining the worlds' ecosystems so living organisms survive. This lesson is part of a series of six lessons in which students use their growing understanding of various environments and the engineering design process, to design and create their own model biodome ecosystems.

In this two-part activity students examine the teeth of living mammals to try to determine the animal's feeding habits and then apply skills learned to the interpretation of the diet of extinct animals. During this activity students will recognize that teeth display a variety of shapes, and that tooth shapes are correlated with specific ways of obtaining and processing food. They will be able to recognize the dietary habits of living animal species through the examination of their teeth, and hypothesize what the diets of extinct animals were through the examination of fossil teeth.

Do you eat like a horse? Or more like a bird? As you might expect, different animals eat different things. Some animals specialize in eating one particularly rich food source, while others eat whatever they can find. This video segment samples the diversity of feeding habits among some of the world's creatures.

In this activity (page 5 of the PDF), learners will create a food web and explore food sources for different organisms. They will identify relationships between organisms in an ecosystem. Though this activity was created as a pre-visit for a traveling science show, it makes a great stand-alone activity as well! (less)
