What is a food chain?

All living things needs food to survive.
A food chain shows how each living thing gets food, and how nutrients and energy passes on from creature to creature. Below is a basic example of a food chain.

The elements of a food chain

The SUN is usually the beginning of most food chains.
  • Nearly all of the energy used by living things on earth to survive originally came from the sun.
PRODUCERS, which are plants, produce their own food from sun, water, air (carbon dioxide), and soil.
CONSUMERS, which are usually animals, consume other plants and animals.
  • An HERBIVORE only eats plants.
  • A CARNIVORE only eats meat.
  • An OMNIVORE eats both plants and animals.

DECOMPOSERS, which include fungi, bacteria, and worms, eat decaying plants and animals, and decompose them back into soil. The soil can then be used by plants to grow.

Review year 3.

Hello kiddys:

We have been working with kingdoms and the animal kingdom. I have made for you to learn this two mind maps. Mind maps are very useful to discover and learn new concepts such as vertebrates, molluscs...etc. So, do not forget to include "mind maps" in your school bag when you need to study or learn something new.

Have fun and enjoy.
