Secondary consumers

Secondary consumers are animals that eat primary consumers. These are usually carnivores. For example, a grasshopper is a primary consumer of grass. A bird, who eats the grasshopper is secondary consumer.

Producers

Plants are called producers. This is because they produce their own food. They do this by using light energy from the sun, carbon dioxide from the air and water from the soil to produce food-in the form of glucose/sugar.

Food Web

—The relationship between organisms in food chains looks very simple, but in reality it is more complex. When two or more food chains linked together, this relationship is called a food web.— Examples of two food webs in different habitats.
a. In a forest
—A rabbit, a cricket and a deer eat grass and shrubs. The rabbit can be eaten by lions, snakes and eagles. The deer is eaten by the lions. —The crickets is eaten by the frogs. The frog is eaten by the snakes. —The snakes is eaten by the eagle.
b. In the ocean
—Seaweeds are a food source for prawns and turtles. The  turtles is an omnivore because it eats seaweeds, prawns and fish. The fish is a carnivore because it eats only prawns. The seal is a carnivore because it eats only fish. The shark has the most number of the food sources. It eats seals, fish and turtles.

Food Chain

All living things need food to give them the energy to grow and move.  Animals get energy from the food they eat and all living things get energy from food. Plants use sunlight, water and nutrients to get energy (in a process called photosynthesis). Energy is necessary for living beings to grow.
A food chain shows how each living thing gets its food. Food chains begin with plant-life and end with animal-life. Some animals eat plants, some animals eat other animals.
A food chain shows how living things feed on other living things. It shows the food  relationship among the organisms in a habitat
