  • 2. What Is Symbiosis?
    There a 3 main types of symbiotic relationships (symbiosis); these are mutualism, parasitism and commensalism.
    • Mutualism is when both species benefit. Here is an example. Egyptian Plovers (crocodile birds) hang around crocodile’s mouths, cleaning the crocodile’s teeth. The crocodile would have the benefit of clean teeth, while the birds enjoy eating scraps from the teeth.
    • 3. Parasitism is when one species benefits by harming the other.
    • 4. Commensalism is when one species benefits while the other is unharmed/unaffected.

  • 5. The Food Chain
    Here is an example of some animals that build a food chain in/around the river:
    Even Bigger Fish
    Primary Consumers
    These animals only eat plants, they are called Herbivores.
    Secondary Consumers
    These animals only eat meat, they are called Carnivores.
  • Human Symbiosis
    In your body, there are many different 'systems' that are important. We are only going to tell you about the areas that are relevant to our project.
    The respiratory system: Changes the unhealthy carbon dioxide into regular good oxygen that we breathe.
    The circulatory system: Spreads blood all over the body causing oxygen and nutrients to run everywhere.
    All these systems depend on each other. Your brain could not survive without blood. Your blood that goes to the brain couldn’t do this, if it weren’t for the respiratory system. The blood would never be able to even reach the brain without the circulatory system as well. And on and on and on and on and on….
  • 13. The Boxer Crab & The Sea Anemone
    Sea Anemone: OWWW! Stop it! You're choking me! Why can't you just put me on the ground and let me be? (annoyed)
    Boxer Crab: Hey! (angrily) I don't think you should've said that. Without me, you wouldn't have any food; you'd probably starve. Anyways, what's a little pinch compared to life and death?!
    Sea Anemone: What do you mean by 'life and death?’ I can get my own food all by myself! (proudly)
    Boxer Crab: Well, not really. We actually help each other. You see, I would probably be dead by now because I wouldn't have anything to protect me with. My special claws, which are immune to your poison, holds and waves you around to threaten the predators. If they don’t leave, then I use you to attack!
    Sea Anemone: (hands on hips) How does this benefit moi?!
    Boxer Crab: Those who attack, I eat and so do you. (points to self, then to Sea Anemone)
    Sea Anemones: Oh… I get it! So if your claws weren't able to hold me, I would starve and you would be uhhhhhh… like dead.

    The one fact that surprised us about polar bears was that they could actually walk easily on very thin ice, even with it’s heavy weight.
    Nothing was really interesting about alligators, but there was one cool fact. It was that they have plated skin.
    When finding information about kangaroos, there was one very interesting fact. It was that kangaroos are very good at swimming.

  • 42. What Do Humans Depend On?
    • Humans rely on the ocean because the ocean gives homes to animals, and humans eat those animals, so if the ocean did not provide animals’ homes, then humans would starve.
    • 43. Humans also believe that plants will grow for us- so we can eat- but as humans, we need to take care of the plants/crops so they will eventually grow as food for us.
    • 44. When it’s cold, you shiver, right? Well, when you shiver, your body is actually getting warm. The muscles in your body move quickly back and forth, so that’s how your body adapts to cold weather.
    • 45. When you sweat, your body is cooling down. Sweat (water) comes out of your body from holes, and you cool off when the sweat dries.
