Food Chains Activity : Chain Reaction

This resource by Ecokids is ideal for use with an interactive whiteboard and a class group. It covers herbivores, carnivores and omnivores at a basic level before explaining that all the energy comes from the sun which is converted to food by plants. Some animals eat the plants to get energy but some animals eat the other animals. Students get the opportunity to construct two differing foodchains - one for the noerthern arctic region and one for a jungle. They also have the opportunity to investigate what happens if any of the elements of a food chain is removed. Very useful.
