WEB OF LIFE

Kathryn Doss
Eulalie R. Rivera Elementary School

1-2


Disciplines:
1.Language Arts
2. Science


Objective:

The students will become aware of the interdependency of nature, as the activity will demonstrate that all
things need the sun, air and water and other things in nature as well.

Rationale:

In order to develop a sense of appreciation for all things in nature, it is well for young children to develop an
understanding of how dependent we are and how interdependent everything else is on nature.

Materials Needed:

Spool of thread, string or yarn. Cards or paper with picture or'drawing of water, sun, air, tuna, lobster, shark,
pelican, cattle egret, mongoose, tree, grass, horse, cow, hibiscus, lizard, bananaquit, soldier crab, millipede,
person and other common things so that each child has a different one.

Directions/Activity:

The group sits in a circle, each child holding a card. One participant will begin by saying how he/she is
dependent upon someone else in the circle. For example, the pelican may say it needs the water or the cow
may say it needs the grass. The leader runs a piece of string between those two participants. The next
participant says something he/she is dependent upon or that is dependent upon him/her and the procedure
continues. A giant web is created with the string.

Evaluation:

Students will be asked to correctly draw lines connecting the things illustrated on the work sheet.
