With this project, we are going to learn how living things are interconnected and how some human actions endanger our planet. We are going to find out about the existing endangered species and we are going to raise awareness about the crucial importance of protecting them.
For this purpose, we suggest using different resources: Interactive videos created with Edpuzzle, display classroom instructions, aims and tips on Classroomscreen, gather the resources that students our going to use using Pearltrees, creating the project presentations with Googleslides and sharing the work with the teacher on GoogleClassroom.
I hope the following ideas and resources are useful.
Aim: To learn the difference between a food chain and a food web
Activity 1: Flipped learning: Watch the video and answer the questions (Homework)
Bloom’s Taxonomy dimension: Remembering and understanding
Activity 2: Our own food web
We put what we learnt into practice creating our own food web. For this purpose, we use the activity described by Line Admin
Bloom’s Taxonomy dimension: Applying
Activity 3: Cool questions
We use Cool Questions to make them think individually, then discuss and share their ideas with their team members and finally, with the whole class. Here you can find more information about the process:
Bloom’s Taxonomy dimension: Analyzing
Cool questions for this session:
- In an ecosystem, can the same animal be both predator and prey? Why?
- Can you think of an animal which is both a primary consumer and a secondary consumer?
We use Classroomscreen as our main board, so we present the Cool Question on this board as well:
To be aware of the importance of protecting the environment
To understand the difference between an extinct species and an endangered species
To collaborate with a partner to create a presentation
To share our project with our classmates

Activity 4: Cool question:
