organism to the next in a community.
Explain what the arrows on the food chain represent?

 The sun
Where do consumers get
their energy?
 Eat other organisms

source of energy on
Earth?

Why?
How are primary, secondary, and tertiary consumers different?
 Primary consumers – eat on plants
 Secondary consumers – eat primary consumers
