Predators, Prey & Food Chains

Predators, Prey & Food Chains

KS 1, 2, 3, 4. First, Second, Third, Fourth Stage.

Ages 5 -14

DURATION: 45 mins - 55 mins

OVERVIEW: Food chains are a very delicate balance -  each species is dependent on the others around it. If the balance becomes upset, drastic things can happen!

This workshop looks at feeding connections (what-eats-what) in an ecological community. We examine herbivores, carnivores and omnivores and learn how to classify non-living and living things. Pupils discover where energy comes from and how the consumer resource system can cause the disruption of a food web.
