Learning about food chains and food webs is very important. A great way to learn about (or teach others about) our native mammals in the United Kindgom is to put them at the centre of a food web! So that’s what we’ve done. Take a look below at an example of what food web resources we have for each mammal and then choose the mammal species you would like to learn about from the list below.
For each mammal there is a sheet on what food they eat. For example, the rabbit is a herbivore so only eats plants.
We then look at food chains. A food chain shows what each animal relies on in a certain habitat. This starts with a plant which is a producer and usually ends with an animal called a consumer. See what levels are in the food chain below!
We then have a food web diagram for each mammal. Most plants and animals are part of more than one food chain! So take a look below to see how all the food chains interact with each other in the food web.
And finally to truly learn about food chains and webs, we thought it best you create your own!
