This week, we will be moving onto thinking about food chains.  What is a food chain?  Why are they important?  What would happen if one element of a food chain was missing?

 

To start with I would like you to look at the videos on BBC bitesize https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zbnnb9q

and then watch the PowerPoint on food chains.

 

Once you have completed this you will then look at key words related to food chains.  I want you to find out what the different words mean and then create a poster showing the different elements you have learnt about.

 

For example, you could draw a picture of a habitat showing different animals and how they are related.  If you drew a scene like this which animal would you label as the Herbivore?  Which would be the Predator?  Which would be a primary consumer? 

 

I hope that you enjoy this work.  Take your time, think carefully about the image as much as the labelling of the different parts of the food chain.
