I'm going to talk about food webs and food chains!
Pretend this is me teaching:
This is a food chain, it is a linear network of links in a food web that starts with the producers and ends with the tertiary consumers. As you can see from the example, the grass is the producer. Then the grass gets eaten by the beetle, which is the primary consumer. The beetle gets eaten by the frog, which is the secondary consumer. Finally, the frog gets eaten by the snake, which is the tertiary consumer.
Do you know that there are 350,000 species of beetles? That's a lot of beetles to count!
This is a food web, it is similar to a food chain but larger and more complex. The diagram combines many food chains into one picture like this one. It also shows that animals can eat more than one species. For example, the rabbit eats wildflowers and grass. Another example is that the hawk eats the rabbit, the mouse, and the snake.
