Important facts about food chains• In a food chain each organism obtains energyfrom the one at the level below.• Plants are called producers because theycreate their own food through photosynthesis• Animals are consumers because they cannotcreate their own food, they must eat plants orother animals to get the energy that theyneed.
  4. 4. Primary Producers• Primary producers are “organisms capable ofproducing their own food”• We can also say that they are photosynthetic, uselight energy.• Primary producers are eaten by primary consumers(herbivores)
