Food Chain Game- Free Printable

(This post may contain affiliate links. See my Disclosure Policy for details.)

When you homeschool, you basically can’t get enough books, or maybe it’s just me.  Since we buy so many books, we LOVE buying our books at thrift stores.  This past weekend I found a great book at a thrift store called The Magic School Bus Science Explorations (I found book C, there are three from what I found online, A-C).  It is a little workbook type book that has games and experiments to go along with the different books.  Since we love Magic School Bus books, this one was a great find.

I was thrilled this morning when my son was looking through it and started begging me to play one of the games in the book called the Food Chain Game.   Well, as I looked through the description of the game I thought it would make a great printable.  I figured if I made it nice we could print in on cardstock, laminate it and reuse it.  (Another one of those homeschooler things- making it re-usable) So, I did just that.  I added little pictures & made it into a printable game– now you guys can use it, too.

The game has cards with carnivores, omnivores and herbivores, as well as plants on them.  You choose a plant card & take turns making a food chain using the different animals. There are also some free choice cards that let you choose your own animals to add into the chain. It’s a really fun game.  We had fun playing it together this morning.   I hope you can use it in your own teaching!

    Thanks for sharing!

  8. Thank you so much for making this for the rest of us! I really appreciate it!
    I found one typo you might want to know about. The instructions say to give the kids a “pint” instead of a “point.” If you live in Ireland & it is acceptable to give your kids a pint as a reward, I’m sorry for meddling. Thanks again!

  9. Thanks! I am going to use this to help my cub scouts earn their Wildlife Conservation belt loop.
