  3. 3. DEFINITIONS <ul><li>Photosynthesis-process by which plants make their own food using sunlight. </li></ul><ul><li>Primary Producer-something that produces their own food(plants) </li></ul><ul><li>Primary Consumer- Organism that eats the primary producer(Herbivore)(Rabbit) </li></ul><ul><li>Secondary Consumer- Animal that eats the Primary Consumer(Ex. Snake that eats rabbits) </li></ul>
  4. 4. DEFINITIONS CONT’D <ul><li>Tertiary Consumer-Eats the secondary consumer(owl) </li></ul><ul><li>Quaternary Consumer-Eats the tertiary consumer(Hawk) </li></ul><ul><li>Decompose-When an animal dies and breaks down releasing nutrients back into the soil </li></ul><ul><li>Herbivore-Organism that only eats plants </li></ul><ul><li>Omnivore-Organism that eats both plants and meat </li></ul><ul><li>Carnivore-Organism that eats only meat </li></ul>
  5. 5. BACKGROUND INFORMATION Every organism needs to obtain energy in order to live. For example, plants get energy from the sun, some animals eat plants, and some animals eat other animals. A food chain is the sequence of who eats whom in a biological community (an ecosystem) to obtain nutrition. A food chain starts with the primary energy source, usually the sun or boiling-hot deep sea vents.
  6. 6. MATERIALS <ul><li>Pictures of Organisms </li></ul><ul><li>Science Journals </li></ul><ul><li>Pencil </li></ul>
  7. 7. STEP 1 <ul><li>Discuss what a food chain is: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Review Vocabulary and background information </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Write what animals you believe would be involved in a food chain excluding the ones in the example. </li></ul><ul><li>Review answers and discuss whether or not it is correct. </li></ul>
  8. 8. STEP 2 <ul><li>Lay out the Construction Paper with the organisms on it. </li></ul><ul><li>Take a turn at creating a food chain using the pictures. </li></ul><ul><li>Discuss as a group or with an adult why each food chain would be correct or not. Try to use some vocabulary words. </li></ul>
  9. 9. ASSESSMENT <ul><li>Which organism would be considered a Herbivore? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A. Rabbit B. Alligator C. Plant D. Human </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Which is a primary PRODUCER? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A. Human B. Mushroom C. Plant D. Owl </li></ul></ul><ul><li>What is needed for the process to begin(Background Info) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A. Soil B. Sun(Heat) C. Water D. Wind </li></ul></ul>
