Herbivores, Carnivores, Omnivores

In our Herbivores, Carnivores, Omnivores lesson plan, students learn the differences between herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores, and what each eats. Students practice identifying animals with each of these diets.

Our Herbivores, Carnivores, Omnivores lesson plan introduces students to the difference between herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores, the characteristics of their teeth, and examples of animals for each category. Most students are aware that animals have different kinds of diets but may not know the scientific term for each of the diets. During this lesson, students are asked to play a fun game with a partner in which they take turns picking two animals out of a hat – if both animals are herbivores, carnivores, or omnivores, they get a point, and the student with the most points at the end wins; this allows students to practice recognizing the different types of animals in a fun and interactive way. Students are also asked to match terms with their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define herbivore, carnivore, omnivore; explain the differences and name examples of each in the animal world.
