  • Notes on the adaptations of elephants and lions:.
    Elephant
    Elephants’ ears are used for display and signalling anger and warning. However, they are also used to control body temperature. Blood circulating in large vessels in the ears is cooled by flapping the ears.
    The trunk of an elephant has numerous uses such as for eating, drinking, communication, and dust and water bathing.
    3. An elephant’s sight is very poor, so its sense of smell is very sophisticated. It can be used to detect predators but elephants can also detect underground water using their sense of smell.
    4. An elephant’s eyelashes are very long to protect the eyes from dust. Its eyes also blink regularly for the same reason.
    Lion
    A lion has piercing canines in order to grab and kill prey. Its other teeth are also specialised to eat meat. A lion has scissor-like molars to slice into meat.
    While one function of the mane is to make the animal appear bigger it is also useful to protect the neck in disputes with other lions.
    Lions often hunt at night so their sense of sight has to be excellent. They also have to detect fast moving prey.
    4. Its claws are used to catch prey but are retractable to aid walking.
  • This slide is the names of eight different organisms.
    Drag their name into the correct table
    depending on whether you think that they are
    a producer or a consumer.

    • 3. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 20053 of 40 What makes a habitat? A habitat has all of the things that an organism needs to survive such as the right amount of light, oxygen and water. What is a habitat? The place where an organism lives is called its habitat. Habitats How would you describe your habitat?
    • 4. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 20054 of 40 How are these habitats similar and how are they different? Different types of habitats
    • 5. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 20055 of 40 Which land habitat?
    • 6. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 20056 of 40 Which water habitat?

    • 8. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 20058 of 40 Organisms need to have special features which help them to survive in their habitat. These special features are called adaptations. For example, you have plenty of adaptations to survive in your habitat. Your fingers are an excellent adaptation. Without their ability to grip you would not be able to do all of that schoolwork! Some adaptations are obvious while others are not so obvious. Can you think of any other adaptations that you have? What are adaptations?
    • 9. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 20059 of 40 These organisms are all adapted to their environments in different ways. How are they specially adapted to survive? Adaptations in different habitats
    • 10. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 200510 of 40 These animals have similar habitats but different adaptations. Adaptations in similar habitats
    • 11. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 200511 of 40 What are adaptations for?
    • 12. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 200512 of 40 As the organism is adapted to its environment you should be able to use the way it looks to answer all of these questions. Don’t forget to give your organism a name! Scientists have discovered this strange new species on a small island off the coast of Argentina. The scientists want you to help them describe where this animal lives (land, water or air), what it eats, how it eats, how it breathes, how it moves and last, but not least, what they should call it. A new species…
    • 13. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 200513 of 40 Many things in the environment change on a daily basis. For example, the temperature and the amount of light. Organisms adapt to the type of habitat they live in and also have to adapt to the daily changes in their habitat. For example, many flowers open their petals during the day to catch the Sun and close them at night for protection from early morning frost. Daily adaptations
    • 14. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 200514 of 40 The environment also changes on a yearly basis with the seasons. This may bring about changes in light and temperature but also in the availability of food and water. Organisms must also find some way to adapt to these yearly changes. Organisms have come up with many different ways to achieve this. Yearly adaptations For example, many animals hibernate over winter to deal with food shortages.

    • 17. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 200517 of 40 Different types of animals can be grouped in several ways. One grouping system is based on how animals feed. Other organisms cannot make their own food. These are called consumers. Some organisms produce their own food. These are called producers. Feeding types Plants produce their own food using light energy from the Sun. Some types of bacteria can also make their own food by using light or chemical reactions.
    • 18. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 200518 of 40 Producer or consumer?
    • 19. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 200519 of 40 Consumers can be grouped into different types: Consumers Carnivores These consumers eat other consumers. They eat animals. Herbivores These consumers eat producers. This means plants and possibly bacteria. Omnivores These consumers eat other consumers and producers. They eat animals and plants. Most humans are omnivores.

    • 22. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 200522 of 40 Food chains – what eats what? What is the food chain in this habitat?
    • 23. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 200523 of 40 A food chain shows what is eaten by what. Each arrow means ‘eaten by’. What does this food chain show? A leaf is eaten by a caterpillar, which is eaten by a bird, which is eaten by a cat. Energy is transferred from one organism to another in the direction of the arrow,. Food chains leaf caterpillar bird cat
    • 24. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 200524 of 40 Drag the organisms into the boxes to make three food chains. Food chains – activity
    • 25. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 200525 of 40 Draw your own food chains based on the following guidelines: a) A food chain from a forest. b) A food chain from an ocean. c) A food chain with four organisms in it. d) A food chain that ends with you! Use arrows ( ) to show the transfer of energy between the organisms that you choose. Food chains – draw your own
    • 26. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 200526 of 40 Read the following paragraph about who eats whom in the Antarctic and draw a food chain that shows the feeding relationships in this habitat. Don’t forget that your food chain must start with a producer! Killer whales or orca’s range around Antarctica hunting for their food. One of the species that they eat are the Weddell Seal. Weddell seals are large mammals that stay in Antarctica all year round. One of the many things that they eat are squid. Squid are very fast hunters who often poison their prey. They feed on many different organisms including shrimp. Shrimp are small animals that live on the ocean floor. There are over 2,000 different species of shrimp all over the world. They are omnivores but phytoplankton makes up a large part of their diet. Antarctic food chain – information

    • 28. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 200528 of 40 Food chains and feeding types Food chains always start with a producer. If the producer is a plant it can be any part of the plant, such as the seeds, fruits, leaves or even dead leaves. From looking at a food chain we can tell if an organism is a producer, a herbivore or a carnivore. What are the feeding types of the animals in this food chain? leaf caterpillar bird cat

    • 30. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 200530 of 40 Consumers eat plants or animals, or both. A food chain can be used to rank different types of consumers. Ranking consumers  producers – make their own food;  primary consumers – eat producers;  secondary consumers – eat primary consumers;  tertiary consumers – eat secondary consumers. humancrayfishlimpetseaweed producer primary consumer secondary consumer tertiary consumer

    • 33. © Boardworks Ltd 20041 of 20 © Boardworks Ltd 200533 of 40 Most animals would get pretty fed up if they only ate one thing. Instead, they usually eat many different things and are involved in lots of different food chains. What is a food web? These food chains can be put together in a food web, which shows how the food chains are connected. What would the food web look like for these food chains? plants → aphid → ladybird → blue tit → owl plants → moth larva → blue tit → owl plants → moth larva → spider → chiffchaff → owl plants → vole → stoat plants → vole → owl
