The students can compose a food chain or web that contains producers and consumers. You may extend it further by using a specific ecosystem with identified plants, animals, etc. Furthermore, you can allow the students to select their own from a list you created and research a food chain or pyramid.

Already have in a place a concrete classroom management program. Especially, if dealing with older students have the contract they signed earlier in the year and use it to remind them that this is a collaboratively effort, yet not the time for horseplay or socialization. Have zero tolerance for any misbehavior that occurs in the classroom. Hope I helped.

Teachers can have clear rules and expectations dictated to the students prior to the beginning of the activity. Confirm with all students that they understand the verbal instructions you have given.

5 Bio-mimicry and Sustainability
Excellent information on bio-mimicry and sustainability! The articles and resources were very information with clear and concise language. I truly enjoyed reading the resources that you placed in your collection. Sustainability is especially important because we must use Mother Earth's resources in a responsible manner. Also, bio-mimicry is an integral part of sustainability because you are taking natural resources and inspiration to formulate ideas and products that benefit not only us but future generations as well. Providing the information on how to teach this concept to students is also very important. Furthermore, the students will become environmental stewards by passing on the lessons they have learned to sustain the earth and its resources. This collection is very instrumental for an pre-service and service educator who is looking to introduce bio-mimicry and sustainability to their class!
