Science

In today's science we are continuing to look into food chains! We will be looking at the definitions of 'producers' and 'consumers'. We have previously discussed in class what the difference is between predator and prey- predators eat their prey. Or, you could say predators consume their prey!

Can you sort out the below animals into their correct categories? Producer or consumer? Predator or prey?

 

Can you be more than one thing? for example, mice are consumers as they eat plants and mushrooms...but they're also eaten by birds! So that would make them...can you tell me!

Below is an energy pyramid. It shows the transfer of energy between animals as they are consumed (or eaten). I would like you to create your own energy pyramid using your knowledge of food chains and who is eaten by what. I have created a template for you to use at the bottom of the page or you can draw your own!
