What's to Eat?

Like other living things, people need energy to live. We get our energy from the foods we eat. You have been learning how energy passes between living things in food chains. You and your family members can plan a meal together and talk about some of the food chains you are part of.

A plate, fork and cup.


Ask an adult to help you plan a meal that you would like to have. Print this page and draw the meal in the picture shown. On the back of the paper, write the name of one food. Draw the complete food chain for this food. Then do the same for each of the other foods.


What is the same about each food chain that you drew? What is different?
