A Kinaesthetic Food Web
In this case study, from the Centre for Science Education and the AstraZeneca Science Teaching Trust, Sarah Williams and Matthew Bailey, from King Ecgbert School in Sheffield, share their experience of creating an interactive activity to help students with special educational needs to understand food webs and the flow of energy in food chains.
They found that using a kinaesthetic model of a food web engaged ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorders) and SEN (Special Educational Needs) students and allowed them to understand an abstract concept. It was also highly effective as a tool for reinforcing key vocabulary such as predator, prey, producer and consumer.
