Vaifoa- NZ Food Web

For Science this term, we've been given a task to complete about "Food chain." Our main task was to draw lines to whether what eats what. The food chain started from Trees and ended at the animals that eat birds such as the stoats, Possum and Rat. We had to organize the NZ Food Web which had a lot of lines. The native NZ Tui bird eats the Kowhai tree (NZ tree, translation of Kowhai: Yellow). Here is a picture that our teacher took of our completed Food chain. This diagram (picture) shows different animals eating one another and got it's nutrition from either of them. So insects eat some trees and so does birds.

  1. It took your group a while and lots of discussion to complete this food web using the clues about the organism's diets! Great discussion :) One thing you could add is that the trees are at the start because they are able to make their own food by using photosynthesis. Organisms that can do this are called 'producers,' all the rest in the food web are 'consumers' of energy!
