In this Xpeditions lesson, students are introduced to the animals of Antarctica and to the Antarctic food chain. Students draw pictures of a variety of animals and attach the pictures to a wall collage. They then listen to or read statements about each animal's diet and draw arrows to show which animals eat which food. Students end up with a food web that illustrates the importance of krill to the Antarctic ecosystem. This lesson is based on the National Geographic feature titled "Antarctica."
