Worksheet Overview

 A habitat is a place where an organism (animal or plant) lives - it is its home.


A habitat must provide three things to be suitable:

a) The right sort of shelter.

For example, the ocean is no good for a robin as there's no nesting material for it.




b) The right sort of food.


For example, an osprey eats fish, so it won't be found living in a forest.




c) A suitable mate.

For example, if a rat swims to an island where there are no other rats, the rat species will not survive there once it dies.




In each of the following questions, we will use our knowledge to work out what lives where and why.
