This week’s lesson,”The Garden Food Chain” teaches the importance of each living organism and non-living feature in an ecosystem. Using your schoolyard garden as a setting, discuss the roles of decomposers, producers, and consumers. Encourage students to explore their garden or reflect on a time spent in their garden and ask them to identify what types of organisms live in the garden and where they fall in the food chain. Dig deeper and have students think about where they as humans fall in this garden food chain.
