Food Chains

Food Chains show the way in which energy is passed from the sun to plants, which are then eaten by animals, that are then eaten by other animals until you get to the top of the food chain. 

Plants are called producers as they make their own food and are at the start of the food chain. 

Animals are called consumers are they eat plants and other animals. 

If one part of a food chain is changed, the whole food chain is affected. 


It is easy to make your own food chains and show them in different ways! 




Collect small toy animals and show the food chain with arrows. 

Or... Stack them! 


Print image for each food chain part. Attach the images to different sized tubes - the tubes should fit inside each other with the widest at the bottom. 

Fit them together to make a food chain!

Or... make a paper chain food chain!
