What is a Food Chain?
Together producers and consumers make up a food chain. A food chain is the order of food from one living thing to another. A food chain shows how plants and animals need each other for food.
Many food chains begin with the sun's energy. A plant gets energy from the sun to make its own food to help it live and grow. Then a mouse can eat the plant and get food and energy. Then a snake may eat the mouse for food and energy. Then a hawk might eat the snake. This is an example of a food chain.
