  1. Coral Reef Community Dramascene descriptions Hawaii’s Coral Reefs Kindergarten PRISM GK-12

  2. Organize! • Organize the students by their assigned puppets into groups according to what they eat (herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, decomposers, producers). Have them sit in the audience in these groups.

  3. Scene 1: Producers • Sunrise: the sun hat comes out. • Algae costumes move back and forth catching the rays, and make their own food from the energy.

  4. Scene 2: Herbivores • The herbivorous fishes (convict tang (manini) and the honu swim by and nip at the algae

  5. Scene 3: Omnivores • The humu’humu’nuku’nuku’apua‘a (reef triggerfish) and raccoon butterfly fish swim by and nip at algae and eat zooplankton (tiny larvae).

  6. Scene 4: Decomposers • The crabs walk across the floor and eat scraps of algae and dead animal material. • Crabs stay on set for scenes 5 and 6 …

  7. Scene 5: Daytime Carnivore • The octopus moves quickly across the floor and eats the crabs. • The octopus and another crab stays on stage during sunset interlude.

  8. Sunset Interlude: • The sun sets and the moon rises. • Coral polyps grab at zooplankton (tiny floating animals like isopods) to eat.

  9. Scene 6: Night-time Carnivores • The eel lunges at the crab that is resting from behind the coral reef. • A monk seal swims by and eats an octopus. • The shark hunts the monk seal. The End. Huddle for a discussion about the food web and have students place puppets on the coral reef community posterboard.

  10. Discussion • We are learning that animals that live in the coral reef depend on each other. - Why do they depend on each other? • We call this a food chain. (Show students color coded paper chain) - What would happen if we removed a link (e.g. carnivores) from the chain?

  11. Stick puppets to the Reef Community Poster! • Think about where are puppets would go in the reef community. The arrows connect who depends on who. • Here are some plants or algae. Who has an animal that eats plants (herbivore)? • Call herbivores up one at a time to stick their puppets to the poster. • Here are some urchins. Who has an animal that eats urchins? Etc.
