FOOD CHAINS different living things eating each other for energy.
EXAMPLE:


GRASS

(is eaten by a) GRASSHOPPER

(which is eaten by a) FROG

(which is eaten by a) SNAKE

(which is eaten by a) HAWK

FOOD WEBS explore how all life is interconnected.
EXAMPLE:


TREES produce acorns which acts as food for many

RODENTS and INSECTS.

Because there are many rodents, WEASELS, SNAKES, and RACOONS, can live.

 

The insects in the acorns attract BIRDS, SKUNKS, and OPOSSUMS.

With opossums, skunks, and rodents around, HAWKS, FOXES, and OWLS can find food.

FOOD WEBS show how many animals are connected in many ways to find food.

FOOD CHAINS follow just one path as animals find food.
