Food Chain Activity (Free Printable)
All living plants and animals need energy to live on earth. Animals get energy by eating food, and green plants make their own food through the process of photosynthesis . Find out how to represent this flow of energy with a simple food chain. Plus, grab our printable food chain worksheets for you to use!
SIMPLE FOOD CHAIN FOR KIDS
WHAT IS A FOOD CHAIN?
A food chain is an easy way to represent the links between organisms in an ecosystem. Basically, who eats who! It shows the one way flow of energy from producers to consumers to decomposers.
The producer in a food chain is a plant because it absorbs energy from the sun to make its own food through the process of photosynthesis. Examples of producers are trees, grass, vegetables etc.
Check out our photosynthesis worksheets for kids !
A consumer is a living thing that cannot make its own food. Consumers get their energy by eating food. All animals are consumers. We are consumers!
There are three types of consumers in a food chain. Animals that eat only plants are called herbivores and animals that eat only other animals are called carnivores . Examples of herbivores are cows, sheep and horses. Examples of carnivores are lions and polar bears .
Omnivores are animals that consume both plants and other animals for food. That’s most of us!
What animal is at the top of the food chain? Animals at the top of food chains are called predators . An animal is considered the top predator when it has no other animals that will eat it. Examples of top predators are eagles, lions, tigers, orcas, wolves.
A decomposer is a living thing that gets energy from breaking down dead plants and animals. Fungi and bacteria are the most common decomposers.
Decomposers, like mushrooms are very important for the food chain. Decomposers help put nutrients back into soil for plants to use.
FOOD CHAIN EXAMPLES
A very simple food chain example would be grass —> rabbit —-> fox
The food chain starts with a producer (grass), which is eaten by a herbivore (rabbit) and the rabbit is eaten by a carnivore (fox).
Can you think of a simple food chain from the types of food you eat?
FOOD WEB VS FOOD CHAIN
There are many food chains, and most plants and animals will be part of several food chains. All these food chains joined together are called a food web .
The difference between a food chain and a food web is that a food chain shows only one flow of energy from one level to another. While a food web shows multiple connections at every level. A food web more accurately represents the food relationships you would find in an ecosystem.
Just think of all the different foods we eat!

Free Printables About Food Chains and Food Webs
By Jeannette Tuionetoa on September 25, 2020
The web of life was always meant to be interconnected; teach all about it with these free printables about food chains and food webs. Although life has always been interconnected, God’s creation was not meant to be what it is today.
Before original sin.
Can you imagine the perfect cycle of life? No death? Us living in harmony with no exception. It is hard to even fathom with the divide we see in our world today.
Yet, that is exactly how God made this world to be. Before the original sin, God created everything to interconnect perfectly.
God created plants for both humans and animals to eat. Plants as our sole means of consumption meant no killing, no bloodshed. The world was made to thrive while walking with God, while living for Him perfectly and in peace.
After original sin.
Romans 8:19–23 says, “For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption…”
Once sin was introduced to the world, a curse was put on the creation and changed everything to what we know today – a fallen world.
For the very first time, God made the very first atoning sacrifice. Many people have never thought of this. However, the very first shedding of blood was… from God Himself.
Adam and Eve attempted to cover themselves with figs leaves once they felt guilt and shame from disobeying God. They tried to cover their sin with fig leaves yet the Lord had to cover those sins Himself.
God chose to cover Adam and Eve with animal skins. Genesis 3:21 explains, “And the Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife, and clothed them.”
The garments of skin were righteousness only. He could provide them for their rebellion. Of course, this was a reflection of how the ultimate shedding of blood in Christ was the only thing that could save us today.
The cycle of life.
We went from perfect harmony with God as He intended , to a different type of living where we shed blood to eat, and so did animals. This is precisely what we see when we speak of the food chain and the food web in our present day.
This world is no longer how it once was when God created it. When animals only needed plants to survive before the “fall,” now they are made to adapt to continue the cycle of life. God made the world to be linked one way, but now we are linked in another.
Food chains and food webs.
Humans (most of us) eat animals, bigger animals eat smaller animals, who eat insects, who eat worms, who need the soil to survive.
The food chain and food web make very important topics for us to explore with our children. The primary reason is that as part of the fall of mankind, next is to explain how everything links to dependence on another to survive on earth.
All plants and animals alike rely on food to provide them the energy to live.
By definition, a food web shows the many different ways plants and animals are connected; the food webs contain several food chains. A food chain , by comparison, only shows one path of how plants and animals are connected.

I love the idea of food chains and webs in relation to how God created us to be. It will help us explain why we eat animals for food, why some people choose not to, and provide understanding for either choice.
We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Use these free printables about food chains and food webs to go alongside lessons on His creation to point your kids toward the Creator.
After all, He takes care of the birds, so they never worry where their next meal will come from – so much so does He care for us.
He has covered our sins and made way for us to be reconciled to Him. Amen!
Matthew 6:26, “Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?”

From plants and single cell organisms to humans, every organism on this planet needs a fuel source or energy to live. Plants use the sun and nutrients from the soil. Insects eat plants. Rodents eat insects. Reptiles eat rodents. You get the picture. The bigger animals eat the smaller animals. This is the essence of the food chain.
The food chain is an important concept for a young child to learn. It helps them see the world as a much larger and more unified place. Everything is linked and dependent on each other to survive. There are actually six levels or positions in the food chain. They include primary producers, primary consumers, secondary consumers, tertiary consumers, and quaternary consumers. The food chain ends with the animals that have little or no natural enemies.
Teaching Your Young Students About the Food Chain
Teacher Planet offers lesson plans for teaching about the food chain and the food web. Resources include hands on activity plans, worksheets, clip art, printables and additional teaching resources to help you plan and organize your food chain unit.
Helping children understand their role in the food chain may make them more responsible citizens and increase their understanding of the environment and ecology.
