Geography/ Science: L.O: To identify the producers and consumers in a food chain
Activity 1: Attached below is a warm up activity aimed to familiarise you with the vocabulary related to global warming. This attachment is titled 'Global Warming Activity'. Have a go at matching the term to its definition.
Activity 2: A food chain shows how plants and animals get their energy. A food chain always starts with a producer. This is an organism that makes its own food. Most food chains start with a green plant, because plants can make their food. A living thing that eats other plants and animals is called a consumer, these often come second in the food chain and food chains usually end with a predator which eats other animals (often the consumers). Predators are found at the top of a food chain.
Watch the video below to get a better idea of how a food chain works:
In the Arctic, there is increasing competition between animals for food as the ice caps melt. Attached below (titled 'Food Chain Task') are 5 scrambled food chains involving Arctic animals. In your home learning book, put these animals/ plants in the correct order, starting with the producer and ending with the predator. One has been done for you!
