To learn how to interpret food chains and food webs

Learning outcome – to understand how energy is

transferred from one organism to another.


 

Food chains show how energy is transferred from one organism to the next.

The food chain starts with a producer usually a plant who can produce its

own energy using the light from the sun.

 

The producer is then eaten by the primary consumer, then the secondary

consumer and so on.

The arrows in a food chain show in which direction the energy is moving.

Producers in this case, the grass can make the energy through the process of

photosynthesis.  The primary consumer usually only eats plants and can also

be referred to as a herbivore

The secondary consumer will eat the primary consumer, so because it eats

other animals it can be referred to as a carnivore.
