Ecosystems & The Food Web
Focus Food Chains, Predators, Herbivores & Carnivores
This week we learned about food chains: how every animal has something it eats, and for many animals, also some predator it's eaten by! Your child learned that by asking the two food chain questions: “What does it eat?” and “What is it eaten by?,” you can find surprising animals living near you. Hopefully your child will come home curious to flip over a log and look for creatures living nearby!
You can support your child’s curiosity by increasing the odds of them finding some new and interesting creature. If possible, take them to the closest nature preserve, especially anywhere with fallen logs.
