Title: Food chains and food webs


1
Food chains and food webs
2
We Are Learning To
  • use words correctly to describe feeding
    relationships between animals and plants.
  • show how energy flows through food chains
  • interlink food chains to form food webs

3
What Im Looking For
  1. Construct your own food chain
  2. Spot at least two food chains from a food web
  3. Point arrows in the right direction in a food
    chain
  4. Construct a food web in a group
  5. Be able to answer quiz at the end

Your turn
  • In pairs write down two food chains.
  • Perhaps one of the organisms in it could be you!
  • (Hopefully not being eaten by a wolf ?)
  • Draw in arrows pointing from the thing being
    eaten to the thing eating it.

Energy Flow
Which way does the energy flow?
  • Which way do the suns rays go?

What is it used for?

How is the suns energy used?

Food chain a flow of energy in a habitat
Sun allows grass to grow Grass is eaten
by Rabbits which are eaten by Owls
11
Food chain a flow of energy in a habitat
Grass is eaten by Rabbits which are eaten
by Owls

Food chain a flow of energy in a habitat
Grass is eaten by Rabbits which are eaten by Owls
The arrow means is eaten by and always goes
towards the consumer
13
Except that Owls also eat Shrews as well as
Rabbits

Shrews also eat other plant matter as well as

Shrews also have to watch out for weasels that
might eat them

And snails and worms eat the plant matter too.

Food Chain to Food Web
  • Lets complete ours with
  • hedgehogs (that eat snails worms) and
  • foxes (that eat pretty much anything that moves!)

Food Chain to Food Web
  • The original food chain has expanded into a food
    web with 8 interlinked chains as more organisms
    have been added
  • Food webs are normal in natural habitats as there
    is nearly always more than one organism that eats
    something else.

22
Some Key Words
  • Producer
  • Consumer
  • Herbivore
  • Carnivore
  • Omnivore

24
Your turn
  • In groups of four use the pictures in the
    envelopes to make your own food webs.
  • Start off with individual food chains
  • Then try to link them together to make a food
    web.
  • Draw in some arrows the right way round!

What We Have Done
  1. Constructed food chains
  2. Spotted at least two food chains from a food web
  3. Point arrows in the right direction in a food
    chain
  4. Constructed a food web in a group
  5. Answered quiz at the end
