4th gr science – Predators, Carnivores and Food Chains

Just before we were getting ready to conduct science activity #4 before the winter break I heard one of the students say “Haram!” He did not like the fact that we were going to put a smaller fish (minion) into a jar or the habitat of a much larger fish (betta). Based on the science log hypotheses a number of students felt like the betta would be having a special lunch that day or at least some kind of a “fight” was going to happen. No fight truly happened and no fish became the lunch of the other, but it did allow us to open the discussion/chapter on food chains and food webs. Yesterday and today we learned more on why an animal eating another animal is not haram but necessary for animal survival. The Disney Nature video African Cats helped us with that. Here it is for you to enjoy.
