Living Things - Food Sources

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with living things and food sources.

What do living things eat? Plants make their own food. Where does our food come from? Where our food comes from is called its source. What about other animals? What is the source of their food? All animals eat other living things. Most eat plants but some animals eat other animals for their food. But where did the food come from originally? How energy passes from a plant to an animal and then to a predator is called a food chain. This quiz is all about food chains and what animals eat.
