5th Grade Science Classes Demonstrate Food Chains
by Melissa Ericksen
Food chains are taking place all around us all the time. Last week the 5th grade science students had the opportunity to demonstrate a live food chain. All the energy for their food chains began with the Sun. Energy was then passed from the Sun to plants, rabbits, and wolves. Unfortunately, some of the animals in the food chain were not able to get enough energy. The students were then able to discuss the many reasons why animals may not survive including illness, drought, lack of food resources, and many more.
