Farmyard Food Chains

Farmyard Food Chains makes food chains made fun. The tricky bit is, will you be a cow, a cat or a mouse in this dynamic and entertaining activity?

Farmyard Food Chains is one of a range of lesson plans and activities to teach children about food and farming whilst also meeting the needs of the Science programme of study.
Join the team on the farm with intrepid explorers from local schools in the stimulus video, then complete fun-packed practical tasks to raise scientific knowledge and understanding.

This lesson explores the idea of farm to fork, the perfect example of a food chain. Students explain the food chain of the day’s school dinner, after which they demonstrate their knowledge with paper chains, animal masks and a whizzy quiz.
