Who eats what? Teach your primary students that farms are a habitat of their own. Learn all about food chains, photosynthesis, and producers, consumers and decomposers with the Food Chains educational activity kit developed by the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum.

Through activities, games, experiments, reading exercises, and worksheets, your students:

  • explore what constitutes a habitat and community of plants and animals
  • learn about photosynthesis
  • conduct an experiment to compare the growth and development of plants under various intensities of light
  • create an earthworm composter to see decomposers at work
  • learn what a food chain is and the role of animals and humans in it
  • classify organisms according to their role in the food chain
  • learn about animal products and by-products while going on a treasure hunt
  • learn new vocabulary as they discover how modern agriculture affects wild animals

This kit helps teach science and technology and language curriculum. It includes all the necessary instructions, worksheets, reading exercises, and answer keys, plus a glossary.
