Terrestrial and Aquatic Food Chains

  1. 1. Terrestrial and Aquatic Food Chains Objectives: •Diagram a sequence of a terrestrial food chain including four organisms, some that are predators and some that are prey •Diagram a sequence of an aquatic food chain including four organisms, some that are predators and some that are prey
  2. 2. Types of Food Chains A food chain shows a relationship among plants and animals. • Terrestrial Food Chains: Organisms found on land habitats, such as deserts, grasslands, and forests. (Pictures taken from commons.wikimedia.org, flickr.com, and commons.wikimedia.org)
  3. 3. Types of Food Chains • Aquatic Food Chains show organisms found in water habitats, such as ponds, marshes, swamps, rivers, and oceans. (Pictures taken from commons.wikimedia.org and flickr.com)
  4. 4. Predators and Prey • Food chains usually start with a plant. • Plants are eaten by animals. • That animal becomes prey for another animal that is its predator. • Other animals then eat that animal, and the food chain continues.
  5. 5. Examples of Land Animals • Some examples of land animals are: Insects, frogs, snakes, lizards, birds, owls, squir rels, rabbits, raccoons, deer, wolves, foxes, and bears.
  6. 6. Examples of Aquatic Animals • Some examples of aquatic organisms found in the ocean are: Sea plants, plankton, shrimp, jellyfish, sea stars, tuna, marlin, dolphin, and sharks
  7. 7. Your Turn! • Create diagrams of a terrestrial and an aquatic food chain that includes at least four organisms starting with a plant. • See your teacher if you need any help. • Don’t forget to label your plants and animals. • Click on the website link below and select “Creating a possible food web” to get started: http://www.vtaide.com/png/foodchains.htm
