What is the food chain and how is it connected to energy transfer? (4)

1) Food chain: how plants and animals in a habitat/ecosystems pass (transfer) energy from one to another. Energy starts in the plant (producer) and is passed to the consumer.
2) producers start the food chain by creating their own food and by being food for other animals
3) consumers eat producers or smaller consumers
4) decomposers break up a consumer that dies so they become part of the soil where plants (producers) grow again.
