Worksheet Overview

Plants are totally amazing!  Without plants, we would not have the variety of habitats that support animal life. As well as shelter and places to reproduce, plants grow the food which animals need:


Caterpillar eating apple


Animals that eat plants are, in turn, eaten by other meat-eating animals:


Bird feeding chicks


That's how food chains build up.  Food chains show how living things in different habitats depend on other living things for food.


A food chain can look like this:


grass   worm   skylark



So let's find out about how it all works.
