Worksheet Overview

Here are some of the words that you'll become familiar with as we work on food chains:




Plant in pot


Using the sun's energy, green plants make their own food = they produce food.






Animals that eat plants and other animals are consumers = they consume food.






Some consumers only eat plants. These are herbivores.






Consumers that eat other animals are called carnivores.






Some consumers eat plants and other living things. Animals with a 'mixed' diet are omnivores.


OK, now we've got that sorted, let's put it into practice.
