Sheridan – Science – Decomposer Reading Activity – 4/13

Teacher: Sheridan (


In this activity, you will:

  1. Read about decomposers
  2. Answer questions about decomposers
  3. Complete a food chain that ends in a – you guessed it – decomposer!


  1. Read the short article about decomposers
  2. Answer the questions. For short answer questions, simply type your response. For multiple choice questions, highlight the answer you think is best.
  3. For part 2, on the food chain, simply click and drag the organism images into the blank spots, as I did with the grass. If for some reason the images are not loading (this is an issue with Mac computers for some reason), you may simple write out the food chain.
    1. For example, if you think the grasshopper eats the frog, simple type: frog –> grasshopper –> mushroom, or whatever it may be.

As always, I look forward to hearing from you.
