A Temperate Forest Food Chain
Welcome to a North American temperate forest! As you walk along a shady trail, the forest seems cool and quiet. But it is full of life, from a butterfly flitting over a flower to a gray wolf prowling through the underbrush. Day and night in the forest, the hunt is on to find food--and to avoid becoming someone else's next meal. All the living things are connected to one another in a food chain, from animal to animal, animals to plants, plants to insects, and insects to animals. What path will you take to follow the food chain through the forest? Will you ... Trail a black bear and her cubs? Dive down into a dark river with a beaver? Hunt from a high perch with a great horned owl? Follow all three chains and many more on this who-eats-what adventure!
