    Correct Answer
    C. Habitat
    Explanation
    A habitat is a place where plants and animals have all the necessary resources and conditions to survive and thrive. It provides food, water, shelter, and suitable environmental conditions for the organisms living in it. Habitats can vary greatly, from forests and oceans to deserts and grasslands, and each supports a unique community of plants and animals.

    Deer live in forest.  What do deer need that they find in a forest?

    • A.

      Salt water

    • B.

      Water lilies

    • C.

      Food and shelter

    Correct Answer
    C. Food and shelter
    Explanation
    Deer find food and shelter in a forest. Forests provide a variety of plants, grasses, and leaves that deer eat, ensuring their survival. Additionally, the dense vegetation in a forest provides shelter and protection for deer from predators and harsh weather conditions. Therefore, food and shelter are essential for deer, and they can find both in a forest.

  • 3. 

    A place that is very dry and gets very little rain is most likely ___________.

    • A.

      A forest

    • B.

      A desert

    • C.

      An ocean

    Correct Answer
    B. A desert
    Explanation
    A place that is very dry and gets very little rain is most likely a desert. Deserts are characterized by their arid climate and lack of precipitation. They typically receive less than 10 inches of rain per year, making them extremely dry environments. The scarcity of water in deserts results in limited vegetation and wildlife, as they are not able to thrive in such harsh conditions.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The water is salty.  The water is deep.  Which plants and animals would be found in this habitat?

    • A.

      Trees and bears

    • B.

      Cactuses and camels

    • C.

      Seaweed and whales

    Correct Answer
    C. Seaweed and whales
    Explanation
    Seaweed and whales would be found in this habitat because the given information states that the water is salty and deep. Seaweed is a type of marine plant that thrives in saline environments, while whales are large marine mammals that inhabit deep waters. Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that these plants and animals would be present in this particular habitat.

  • 5. 

    What nonliving things might you see in a forest habitat?

    • A.

      Deer

    • B.

      Trees

    • C.

      Water

    Correct Answer
    C. Water
    Explanation
    In a forest habitat, water is a nonliving thing that can be found. Forests often have rivers, streams, ponds, or other bodies of water within them. These water sources are essential for the survival of various organisms in the forest, including plants, animals, and insects. They provide hydration and act as a habitat for aquatic species. Therefore, it is common to see water in a forest habitat.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    How would a forest habitat be different in winter than from summer?

    • A.

      The animals will have more food.

    • B.

      The animals will have less food.

    • C.

      There will be more leaves.

    Correct Answer
    B. The animals will have less food.
    Explanation
    In winter, the forest habitat would be different from summer because the animals will have less food. During winter, many plants and trees go dormant or lose their leaves, resulting in a scarcity of food sources for animals. This lack of food availability forces animals to adapt their feeding habits and search for alternative food sources to survive the harsh winter conditions. Therefore, the decrease in food availability is a significant difference between the forest habitat in winter and summer.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which plant grows in a desert and can store water in its stems?

    • A.

      Kelp

    • B.

      Grass

    • C.

      Cactus

    Correct Answer
    C. Cactus
    Explanation
    Cactus is the correct answer because it is a plant that is well adapted to desert environments. It has the ability to store water in its stems, allowing it to survive in arid conditions where water is scarce. This adaptation helps the cactus to retain moisture and sustain itself for long periods of time without rainfall.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which sentence is true about both wetland plants and ocean plants?

    • A.

      They grow in water.

    • B.

      They grow very tall.

    • C.

      They grow without sunlight.

    Correct Answer
    A. They grow in water.
    Explanation
    Both wetland plants and ocean plants grow in water. This is because they are adapted to live in aquatic environments and require water for their growth and survival. Wetland plants thrive in freshwater or brackish water found in marshes, swamps, and bogs, while ocean plants, such as seaweeds and sea grasses, grow in saltwater habitats like the ocean. Despite the different types of water they inhabit, both wetland plants and ocean plants have adapted to their respective environments and are able to grow and thrive in water.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

     What does an ocean plant need to grow that a desert habitat does not have?

    • A.

      Hot days

    • B.

      Salt water

    • C.

      Very little rain

    Correct Answer
    B. Salt water
    Explanation
    Ocean plants are adapted to survive and thrive in saltwater environments. They have specialized structures and mechanisms that allow them to extract nutrients and water from the saltwater. In contrast, desert habitats have very little water, and the water available is usually not salty. Therefore, ocean plants cannot grow in desert habitats due to the absence of saltwater, which is a crucial requirement for their growth.

    Rate this question:

  • 10.

    Correct Answer
    Wetland
    Explanation
    The given information indicates that the habitat is rainy and covered with water, which suggests a wetland environment. Wetlands are characterized by the presence of water and support a diverse range of plants and animals, including ducks. Therefore, the correct answer is wetland.
