Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

There are many different places where we can find living things. The place that a plant or animal is best suited to and where it is most likely to find everything it needs to survive is called its habitat.

A habitat is where a living thing makes its home. For an animal such as a whale, it can be as big as the ocean, or for a tiny insect it might be the damp soil under a rock.

  • Question 5

Is the following statement true or false?

Only one kind of living thing can be found in each habitat.

CORRECT ANSWER

A habitat can be home to very many different plants and animals. In a woodland habitat, for example, you might find countless insects and spiders, a variety of plant life, birds, deer and other animals.
  • Question 6

Most living things are suited to one particular type of habitat. In which TWO of these habitats would you NOT expect to find fish?

Fish are suited to living in habitats where there is water - so you wouldn't find a fish in a desert or an oak tree.

desert
