Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

There are so many plants and animals in the world and it might seem too big a task to sort them all out. However, it's not too difficult to sort plants out from animals and maybe even some animals from each other - like fish from birds, for example.

 

In this worksheet there are a series of pictures of different living things. Your task is to place each one into the correct group.

  • Question 1

Put this living thing into the correct group:

 

CORRECT ANSWER
fish
EDDIE SAYS
Sharks live in the sea and breathe using their gills - it's a fish!
  • Question 2

Put this living thing into the correct group:

 

CORRECT ANSWER
plant
EDDIE SAYS
Trees, like this oak tree, are plants. They use their green leaves to soak up sunlight and make food.
  • Question 3

Put this living thing into the correct group:

 

CORRECT ANSWER
has fur
EDDIE SAYS
A bear is a furry animal (that's a mammal) and they also have warm blood and bones and they don't lay eggs - they have cute baby bears!
  • Question 4

Put this living thing into the correct group:

 

CORRECT ANSWER
bird
EDDIE SAYS
This owl is a bird. Is it because it flies? No, it's because it has feathers. All birds have feathers (not all of them fly).
  • Question 5

Put this living thing into the correct group:

 

CORRECT ANSWER
plant
EDDIE SAYS
A dandelion is a plant! Most of it is green and it also produces yellow flowers which turn into those dandelion 'clocks' of seeds that you like to blow!
  • Question 6

Put this living thing into the correct group:

 

CORRECT ANSWER
has a shell
EDDIE SAYS
A snail has a shell which it disappears into if it is attacked or if the weather becomes too dry. Some animals like hedgehogs and blackbirds have learnt how to break open the shell so they can eat the animal inside.
  • Question 7

Put this living thing into the correct group:

 

CORRECT ANSWER
has fur
EDDIE SAYS
This wolf is a furry mammal. It also has bones inside its warm body and when its young are born they are little wolf puppies.
  • Question 8

Put this living thing into the correct group:

 

CORRECT ANSWER
bird
EDDIE SAYS
Penguins may not always look like birds, although their chicks (like in 'Happy Feet'!) are quite fluffy. Although they cannot fly they have feathers which is why they should be put into the bird group.
  • Question 9

Put this living thing into the correct group:

 

CORRECT ANSWER
has a shell
EDDIE SAYS
This tortoise is a reptile and has a shell which it can disappear into if it thinks it's in danger. Its dry scaly skin makes it a reptile relative of lizards and snakes.
  • Question 10

Put this living thing into the correct group:

 

CORRECT ANSWER
plant
EDDIE SAYS
Although you might have to look carefully, this moss is a plant. It's green and it uses sunshine to make its food. Mosses live where it's fairly cool and damp.
