This resource, produced by ARKive, is designed to teach Key Stage Two children about food chains, food webs and interdependence in different habitats around the world. A presentation using high quality images introduces the structure of simple food chains, food webs and how different organisms within ecosystems depend on each other for food. Children carry out activities in small groups to identify sort and construct food chains for five different habitats. These are British woodland, British coastal waters and the less familiar habitats of African savannah, Arctic tundra and Antarctic. There is also a key words activity in which children become familiar with the key scientific vocabulary used in the topic. Included for each habitat are: activity worksheets, images of different species, information texts on species, examples of completed food webs and arrows for constructing food webs. There are also detailed teachers’ notes on how to run the activities.
