I've used this site as an introduction/review of food chains.  I like it because it briefly gives an explaination of what a herbivore, carinivore, omnivore, producer, and consumers are.  After the you are able to build a food chain with the class.  I had them tell me where to put the organisim and if someone disagreed, I had them explain why they thought differently.  It a nice little visual tool that can help aid a class discussion and get them engaged.  Once the students build the food chain it asks what they think well happen if one organism removed.  The class made predictions and then saw what happened.  It's really simple, but I liked the discussion that came with it.
