Make Teaching & Learning FOOD CHAIN more engaging

Food Chain | Butterfly Edufields

Energy flow on Earth

Created in partnership with Students
and Teachers of primary grades, this
project kit creates a fun & memorable
learning experience to understand the
flow of energy on Earth.

1.Learning Outcomes : Students should be able to get a sense of

  •  Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems
    The food of almost any kind of animal can be traced back to plants. 
  •  Cycles of Matter and Energy Transfer in Ecosystems
    Organisms obtain energy from the environment, and release energy back into the environment

What happens if all the Frogs in the world suddenly die one day?

Tip
What does a Frog eat?
Who eats a Frog?

We will all Die too!
(sooner than you can think)

Energy Flow

It’s a connected system.
Energy system on Earth is all connected & interdependent between all living & non-living organisms

The Energy Pyramid block building game
shows how energy flows from BOTTOM TO TOP
& how the entire chain collapses when one block falls off

Energy Pyramid

Students build the pyramid bottom up with 3 color coded layers of blocks. The layers of pyramid show how energy flows from bottom to top.

The Magnetic Food Chain blocks helps find what a different animals
EAT &
DON’T EAT

Food Chain
Students match animals to 3 types of
blocks – Producers, Primary Consumers &
Secondary Consumers

They move the blocks closer to see the
relation between the 3 types of animals

2. Use Case

Students Understand abstract topics
Teachers Teach using alternate methods &
gamifying learningtopics

Meet Aditi.

She lives in a community which gets
waterlogged in the rainy season.
She loved summer but hated the rainy
season & the frogs that come along.
She gets irritated by their sounds in the
night & prays to god to take away all the
frogs allowing him to sleep in peace.

On The Look Out!
Suman & Vidya are now exploring ways
to make this abstract concept easier &
engaging for their class

Meet Suman & Vidya.

Suman & Vidya, two enthusiastic young
teachers, recently joined as primary
school science teachers in Bhopal.

Students in their classes, mostly from
class 2 & 3, found it challenging to
understand & grasp the abstract topics
of Food Chain, Interdependence of
animals etc..

An understanding barrier left Aditi feeling hatred and hampered Vidya’s teaching.

Then, Vidya discovered Food Chain Project Kit

She has his visiting customers speak their camera issues into the app.

She’s able to give them a friendly, personalized experience by understanding exactly what they need.

A simple gesture

Teachers Vidya & Suman tried the Food Chain project kit in their class.

The classroom turned lively with student conversations & questions like “Why can’t a Lion eat Grass?”... “Why are there more plants than humans?”

From irritated to curious

Aditi made a photo library with 15 varieties of Frogs & other insects that can be seen in rainy season. She now started to like the rainy season too.

3. Performance

On NAS

National Assessment Survey (NAS)
conducted by NCERT across India to
find learning gaps in Science

On TIMSS
TIMSS is an international assessment of
Math & Science knowledge of students
around the world.

It’s no surprise Vidya finds it difficult to teach the Food Chain topic in class.

23% is the national average score in NAS & 36% is the international average score in TIMSS

NAS & TIMSS
NAS score is of students
from class 3 & TIMSS
score is of students from
class 4
