Worksheet Overview

Habitats are places where plants and animals live naturally. The scientific word for all living things, plants, and animals, is ORGANISM.

Plants, insects, fish, birds, and mammals are all organisms. Different habitats provide homes for different organisms.


Although habitats can be very different, (compare a seaside rock pool with a deep, dark forest), they all provide WATER, FOOD, and SHELTER for the plants and animals which live there.



Which of the below are habitats?

- a kettle

- a bush

- under a log

- an umbrella 

The habitats are the bush and under a log. 

Under a long and in a bush, we would find a variety of mini beasts like caterpillars and spiders.
