Exploring food chains and food webs

You are here

Our Year 4 students recently delved into the fascinating study of food chains and food webs! They learned how energy is transferred through different levels of an ecosystem, starting from producers, and moving up to various consumers and decomposers. To bring these concepts to life, the students researched and created their own food webs. They used their findings to illustrate the complex interconnections between plants, animals, and insects in different habitats. This hands-on approach not only enhanced their understanding of ecological balance but also sparked their curiosity about the natural world. 

Many discovered surprising connections and developed a newfound appreciation for the delicate balance that sustains life in various ecosystems. We encourage you to discuss their projects with them and explore the amazing discoveries they made about the ecosystems around us. Their enthusiasm and hard work have been truly inspiring!
