Phototrophic producers get energy from the sun. Consumers get energy from the other living things that they eat.
Do you think you have a pretty good idea of what producers and consumers are and how they are connected? Let's build a food web to test it out.
The arrows in the food web show the flow of energy from one source to another. For example, “grass → deer” means energy is transferred from the grass to the deer when the deer consumes the grass. In other words, “grass → deer” means “deer eats grass.”
Drag and drop the name of the organism to its correct place in the food web.
