Choose the decomposer.

Too few animals or plants in an area can cause other animals to go hungry or die.
Too few animals or plants in an area can cause pollution.
Which of these living things is a producer?
Mice and grasshoppers are examples of prey.
Explain the flow of energy in this food chain (who passes energy to who).
The hawk gives energy to the snake. The snake gives energy to the mouse. The mouse gives energy to the grasshopper who gives energy to the grass.
The mouse gives energy to the hawk. The snake gives energy to the grasshopper. The grass gives energy to the snake.
The grass gives energy to the grasshopper. The grasshopper gives energy to the mouse. The mouse gives energy to the snake who gives energy to the hawk.
