5 Food chains and webs.pdf

An important part of science curriculum work in primary schools is the concept of food chains and at a more advanced stage, food webs. This activity is a lot of fun and teaches children how animals interact with their environment and each other, and how any changes can affect them all. You need a collection of toy or model animals representing native wildlife – they need not look realistic. If working with a school class, a selection of 30 toys is ideal but smaller numbers are fine for group work. Include snakes, their prey items and predators.
