What's for Dinner?
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     Every time animals (including humans) run, jump, stomp, or even grow, they use energy. All living things must have energy to stay alive. Where do living things get their energy?
 
2     Some living things create the energy they use. They are called producers. Plants are producers. They make their own food using sunlight, minerals from soil, air, and water.
 
3     Some living things cannot make their own food. They have to get their energy by eating plants or animals or plants and animals. They are consumers. Humans are consumers.
