What is a food chain?

A food chain is a linear link between living things and how they get their food and energy. For example: a plant gets energy from the sun to make its own food, which is then eaten by a grasshopper and then the grasshopper gets eaten by a frog. So, the food chain will be: sun → grass → grasshopper → frog.

What is a food web?

A food web is a collection of food chains that are naturally interconnected. A food web is far more complex than a food chain and involves multiple animals, which visually will look more like a web.
