Food Chains

We are learning about food chains in class.  Solar energy from the sun powers the process of photosynthesis.  Plants use photosynthesis to produce food.  Plants are also called producers.  Animals eat the plants.  Plant eating animals are called primary consumers.  Then, other animals eat them.  These animals are called secondary consumers.  When animals die, their bodies are broken down by decomposers, and nutrients are returned to the soil.  Plants use these nutrients to grow, and the cycle continues.

Homework for today:
    1.  Spelling sentences for the next five words:  grain, trail, bacon, basement, chamber.
    2.  Math p. 27.
    3.  Get parent initials.
