Food Chains 2

In this worksheet, students will work towards understanding the difference between the terms PRODUCER and CONSUMER as used in a food chain. They are also reminded of the terms PREY and PREDATOR. Food chains are shown using arrows to indicate the direction the food energy is travelling in. Students are encouraged to complete their own food chains.

Curriculum topic:   Animals, including Humans

Curriculum subtopic:   Food Chains

Worksheet Overview

 Here is a food chain:

 

Grass

 

 

Rabbit

 

 

Fox
GRASS   RABBIT   FOX

 

The GRASS is called a PRODUCER because it is a plant and makes the food that feeds the animals.

The RABBIT and the FOX are called CONSUMERS because they eat the food made by the grass:

the rabbit is a FIRST CONSUMER (it eats plants) and is PREY for the fox,

the fox is a SECOND CONSUMER (it eats the rabbit) and so is a PREDATOR.

You can see that the food made by the grass (from air and water) flows along the food chain to the fox.

Nothing feeds on the fox so it is called the TOP PREDATOR.
