Line Time: Food Chains- We learned about food chains. We knew that all living things ate/take in nutrients for energy and rely on plants and animals for their “food source”. It was discovered that a food chain can be as small as two parts and we found a five part food chain. We found out that when an animal eats another animal there are terms for that relationship. The animal hunting and eating is called the predator and the animal being eaten is the prey.
