Worksheet Overview

habitat is where an organism lives - it is its home.


House  (but maybe not quite like that!).


A habitat must provide three things to be suitable for an organism:


1) The right sort of shelter:  for example, the sea is no good for a robin as there's no nesting material for it and it can't swim!




2) The right sort of food:  for example, an osprey eats fish, so it won't be found living in a desert.




3) 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.




So, in this activity you'll look at a habitat, and choose the most likely organism to live there, or you'll match up an organism with the best habitat for it.
