Do you know? All living things depend on each other for their food. In this lesson let's learn all about the food chain.

♫♫♫ Play Food chain A living thing needs energy in order to live and they get this energy from the food they eat.

All food chains start from plants and end with animals. Plants are called producers because they produce their own food from sunlight, water and nutrition they get from the soil. Animals are called consumers because they cannot prepare their own food and are directly or indirectly dependent on plants for energy.

Some animals eat plants and some eat animals for energy Animals that eat only plants to get energy are called herbivores like deer, cow, grasshopper, ♫♫ Animals that eat only animals to get energy are called carnivores like tiger, lion, snake. ♫ ♫♫♫ Animals that eat both plants and animals to get energy are called omnivores like monkey, bear. ♫♫

♫♫♫ A simple food chain starts with grass which is eaten by rabbits. Then the rabbits are eaten by foxes. ♫♫♫ Big food chains start with acorns which are eaten by mice. The mice are eaten by snakes ♫♫♫ And then finally the snakes are eaten by hawks. At each link in the chain energy is being transferred from one animal to another ♫♫♫

Marine food chain Marine food chain starts with phytoplankton which are eaten by small fishes. Then the small fishes are eaten by medium-size fishes and at last medium-size fishes are eaten by big fishes. ♫♫♫

♫♫ Food web The arrows in a food chain show the flow of energy. A network of many food chains is called a food web. ♫ Label the animals as herbivores, carnivores, omnivores ♫ ♫♫♫ ♫♫♫
