Bins : -Detritus -primary producer -primary consumer/decomposer -secondary consumer -tertiary consumer -both secondary and tertiary consumer labels (options): -dead animal -living maple leaves -fungus -millipede -earthworm -maggots -rotting log -cricket -robin alligator lizard

Best Answer

producer = usually a plant
primary consumer = a herbivore (hopefully you know what a herbivore is)
secondary consumer = the carnivore that eats the herbivore
tertiary consumer = the carnivore that eats the secondary consumer (usually the top of the food chain)
detritus = eats dead stuff
