Fabulous Food Chains and The Dirt on Decomposers

Everyone eats, right? But how does that food get the energy to power you? In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina talks about the way energy moves, or flows, through an ecosystem and how that movement forms Food Chains!

Then get The Dirt on Decomposers. Dig into how worms, insects, slugs, snails, fungi, and bacteria eat detritus, and help move nutrients and energy through their ecosystem’s food web. Host Sabrina Cruz explains.
