      Energy from the sun should be included in food chains as this is required for plants and bacteria to carry out photosynthesis

      It should be included as the sun makes things grow.

      The next time you see a food chain, draw the sun on it.

      Hang on, am I saying it’s OK to do a bit of science graffiti? 🙂

      Hi Alphabet,

      I don’t know. But the sun is the ultimate source of all the energy on Earth so it would make some sense. It depends on the convention that people use.
